  • Boy Scouts Society creates leaders through scouting

    On March 6-7, student leaders from the Order of the Arrow (OA) of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) met to discuss new events and plan the induction of new members in a quarterly Spring Fellowship meeting.
    The OA was founded by Dr. E. Urner Goodman and Carroll A. Edson in 1915 at the Treasure Island Camp of the Philadelphia Council, BSA. It originated as an experiment to provide leadership opportunities to scouts and officially became part of the Boy Scouts program in 1934.
    The Order of the Arrow is now recognized as the National Honor Society for the BSA and focuses on serving scouts and the community in addition to normal scouting activities such as camping.
    The order is divided into lodges, sections and regions which give students multiple chances to hone leadership skills.
    Home school junior from Los Alamos, Michael Booton has been advancing through leadership positions ever since he became a member of the OA. “I started doing various leadership activities. I was a manager and I kept going and took over publications in northern New Mexico in May 2012,” Booton said. He went on to become vice chief of operations and is now chief of his lodge, Yah-Tah-Hey-Si-Kess which in Navajo means “hello, my friend.”

  • Students voice concerns following PARCC protests

    The controversy over the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) test began last week as it was implemented throughout the state of New Mexico.
    PARCC tests are administered to students in grades third through 11 and test mastery of course content to make sure the student is on track with regards to college readiness standards.
    This year marks the first time the PARCC test is being administered and it is receiving its share of criticism. While adults and parents are concerned about the necessity of the new standardized test, its most vocal critics have been students.
    On Monday, as testing began, hundreds of high school students across the state walked out of their classrooms to protest the implementation of the PARCC test. This form of protest continued at New Mexico high schools on Wednesday.
