ight GHS students were selected to attend the 48th Annual World Affairs Institute for Student Leaders, sponsored by the Monroeville Rotary. The institute took place at the Senator John Heinz History Center on Thursday, Nov. 29th. The topic of this years institute was Exploring the New Space Age. Expert speakers delivered current information relating to concerns and issues regarding space travel and planetary habitation. The students were then presented with a simulation where they had to discuss and develop a solution to a proposed problem. Student teams then presented their findings to the speakers for feedback. Each year, our local Rotarians sponsor up to eight students to attend the institute and then report back to them at a luncheon. Scholarship recipients for 2018 were: Lexi Jobe, Mohemmed Aslam, Mike Reynolds, Cherie Hill, Elisha Schoeneck, Srilekha Sapram, Naomi Fry, and Braydon Baxter.

If you see Emily and Malachi, please congratulate them on a job well done.
