Grace Harvey – Mustangs Ahead
(Lakewood Ranch, LRHS) – LRHS Quill and Scroll journalism honors society reflects on this year’s success as they have encountered many achievements including the Easter egg hunt, food drive and creating Valentines cards for teachers.
The last meeting for seniors will be held on Thursday, May 4 in room 541 to distribute pins and honor cords. This club has accomplished many goals this year, one being the November canned food drive.
Club President Mackenzie Meyer, senior, said, “The canned food drive was the biggest accomplishment for the club was the Mayors Feed the Hungry canned food drive. This fed thousands of people who are hungry and poor”.
Club adviser and LRHS English teacher Candice Delazzer reflects on this year’s success.
“I think our biggest accomplishment every year is the Mini-Mustang Easter party. It is so much fun for both my club members as well as the little Mini-Mustangs. We had an abundance of eggs to hide, and I think each child went home very happy with his full Easter basket. They also had fun taking pictures with our Easter bunny.”
Meyer said that her favorite part of the club is “the Easter egg hunt that we put on for the mini mustangs was my favorite.”
Delazzer said, “Without a doubt, [my favorite part] is the Easter party with the Mini-Mustangs. It’s so fun to see their faces when the Easter bunny walks into the room to take them outside for the Easter egg hunt.
“I would encourage any junior or senior who is interested in writing, or on the newspaper, yearbook or TV staff to join next year. They can gain valuable community service hours, especially helping with the Mayors’ Feed the Hungry canned food drive around Thanksgiving, and the Mini-Mustang Easter party in the spring. Since it’s an honorary organization, it’s not set up to be primarily geared to service, but we do quite a few little projects, like cards for the faculty at holiday times, as well as our 2 major projects,” said Delazzer.
“Advertising is important for events, spread the word on social media,” Meyer advised.
