8A Wednesday, Dec. 5, 2012 Feather River Bulletin Rotary hosts eighth-grade leadership camp Doing its part to ensure a bright future for America, the Quincy Rotary Club sent five students to an Eighth-Grade Leadership camp sponsored by Rotary International's District 5190. It was held Nov. 2 - 4 at Grizzly Creek Guest Ranch. The five students from Quincy Junior High School attending the two-day camp -- selected by their princi- pal and teachers because Of their leadership potential -- were Claire Coelho, Kaylin Henderson, Cherish Kuehlmann, Cody Morrison and Justin Sage. They joined 90 other students from 20 schools throughout Northern California and Nevada. During the camp, the stu- dents were separated into groups of at least 20 new faces where they were led through a number of exer- cises and team-building challenges designed to im- prove leadership, teamwork and communication skills. The emphasis was to create a basis for trust, respect and self-confidence. At the end of the camp, each team was encouraged to establish a goal to work on at their respective schools and, in cooperation with their school princi- pals, develop a plan to im- plement that goal. The Quincy team chose to work building a greater sense of community and, through a series of meetings and ral- lies, will be challenging the entire student body to be "One Big Happy Family." After Rotary members listened to four of the five students enthusiasti- cally describe their experi- ences from the camp during Rotary's regular luncheon meeting Nov. 19, the club's weekly newsletter stated: "If they are any indication, these four awe- some eighth-graders brought a sense that the fu- ture of the world is in good hands." Four of the five Quincy Junior High students chosen for the Rotary Eighth-Grade Leadership camp share their experiences with members of the Quincy Rotary Club at its regular lunch meeting Nov. 19. Chosen by several teachers and Principal Sue Segura (left), they were Justin Sage, Cody Morrison, Claire Coelho and Cherish Kuehlmann. The students attended the two-day camp at Grizzly Creek Guest Ranch.

CattleWornen bring beef Carolyn Carter Staff Writer ccarter@plumasnews.com Ninety fourth- and fifth- graders from C. Roy Carmichael Elementary now know what product makes up the outside of a basket- ball, how to read a brand and why horses are helpful on a ranch, thanks to the help of the California Cattle- Women's Association. On Wednesday, Nov. 28, 12 ladies from the Plumas-Sier- ra CattleWomen's Associa- tion brought agriculture into the classroom by educating the students on beef and the ranch life. The students gathered in the cafeteria and watched a video narrated by young ranching children about life on the ranch. When the video was done the kids were split into six stations. Each station focused on a different part of the beef industry in- cluding leather, brands and vocabulary. The CattleWomen's Asso- ciation is a volunteer pro- gram where women through- out the state dedicate their time and energy to promot- ing the beef industry and ed- ucating the public about beef. The ladies at the event ex- plained to the kids what cows eat, that beef contains ZIP -- zinc, iron and protein -- and how horses contribute to the beef industry by help- ing on the ranch. According to Ag in the Classroom Co-Chairwoman Nancy Thompson, this was the first time the Plumas- Sierra CattleWomen's Asso- ciation did an event this size. The association normally goes directly into classrooms and reads for the children or cooks for them. When the presentation was over, the kids lined up and were given burritos. "They all loved the burri- tos," Thompson said. "One little boy asked what kind of burritos they were -- I said 'chicken.'" The event was well re- ceived by CRC and the stu- dents seemed to enjoy a break from the classroom. "Beef promoting is our big thing," said Thompson. ,We are looking forward to present- ingthis in our two counties."
