I The Adams County Record Wednesday, March 14, 2012 Learning Through Experience by Dale Ftsk CJ Zielinski seemed , just a little bit nervous L about her presentation . before she started. But her obvious enthusiasm and knowledge of her ,subject shined through -:immediately once she began explaining her Senior Project. - For several years, r Seniors at Council ,. High School have been doing such projects, and they are now a _ state requirement , for graduation. The purpose of the projects L is to provide students with an opportunity .-, to demonstrate the 7 knowledge and maturity they have gained during , their high school careers. Seniors choose their area of study, combine various disciplines and i use their unique talents j to complete their project.  Zielinski chose to organize the effort to make quilts that will be given to children with cancer. In organizing students, acquiring materials, and all the other things it took to complete the project, she needed to do several jobs that she was not comfortable with, so it taught her (among other things) that she could push through her discomfort. Her project, like all CA Zielinski shows the judges one of the 25 quilts made by students in the Senior Project that she organized. The quilts will be delivered to St. Luke's/ MISTI on April 4. the others presented conclusion.

Cambridge High School Principal Notes i- First Track Me00;00t Page 7 Council High School Student of the Week Adam Cameron a Senior Project is to write a research paper. Pate's was entitled, "Negative Effects of Artificial Selection in Dog Breeding." Part of his oral presentation covered the genetic defects that can result from breeding dogs that are too closely related. When Pate showed a video of Ema working a small group of sheep, Ema had her eyes glued to the screen. One can only imagine what she was thinking. One of the interesting things Pate explained was that professional stock dog trainers often don't treat their dogs like pets. People are often not assertive with their pets, and dogs need to know who's the boss. If the trainer doesn't assert this position, the dog often will try to do so. A trainer's relationship with a stock dog works better if the dog respects the. trainer_as..theAklpha Male,,more than as a friend.
