LMS Student Council Attends District Convention
The Lexington Middle School Student Council attended the District 14 Texas Association of Student Councils ( TASC) Convention on Wednesday, May 11, 2011. The convention was held in College Station at the Texas A& M University Student Recreation Center. The convention was attended by middle schools and high schools from throughout the district with more than 20 schools in attendance. The convention was called to order by the presiding student council, Waller High School. After the normal business was conducted, state project winners were announced. LMS Student Council was recognized for receiving the 2010-2011 TASC Outstanding Student Council Award. The council was also acknowledged for its community service efforts for the year. But the accolades did not stop there, it was then announced that LMS Student Council received a $250 Travel Grant to attend the TASC Middle Level Convention to be held later this year in San Marcos. Mrs. Alford, student council sponsor, stated, “This is great news for the council. We take a group every year to state convention. This year’s convention will require an overnight stay being in San Marcos so the grant will be used for rooms and meals.” The final event of the convention was the officer school elections.
LMS Student Council was vying for the middle school representative position and performed a musical skit. The council performed a dance skit to the song “The Choice is Yours (Revisited)” by Black Sheep. The song has been made famous by the Kia Soul commercials featuring the rapping hamsters. The council members either performed as cool rappers, dancing nerds, crowd pleasers, or sign displayers. Alford commented, “The members did a great job dancing and getting the crowd involved. Many students from other schools joined in and danced. It was awesome!” The 2011- 2012 TASC District 14 Middle School Representative will be Lexington Middle School Student Council!
Alford bragged, “I am so proud of this group of student council members. They have worked hard all year and their work has paidoff big time!”
