Senator Shaheen Visits with FIRST Robotics Students

by Doug Robinson “America must lead in science and technology education to retain its competitive edge in the global economy,” U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) stated during a recent a visit to Windham High School, where she visited students who recently competed and won top honors as “Rookie of the Year” honors at the FIRST Robotic competition.

Shaheen spoke about her Innovation Inspiration

School Grant Program, which would give high school students greater access to innovative programs in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education. The Senator met with members of the school’s FIRST Robotics team, an example of the type of program her legislation would support.

Meeting the students, Sheen commented that she was visiting to not only recognize the accomplishments of the students, but to also to encourage the students to continue to learn, continue to achieve, stating, “We need people like you.” “America’s future is not in low-wage manufacturing. It is in high-tech sectors where we

can bring the full force of our ingenuity to bear,” said Shaheen. “By encouraging students to study these fields, this bill will help students find good jobs, help businesses find skilled workers, and help the United States remain the global leader in science and technology.” “Windham High School’s FIRST Robotics team is the embodiment of a thoroughly integrated STEM curriculum,” said Windham High School Principal Tom Murphy. “I applaud the efforts of Senator Shaheen as she continues to champion legislation that will better position our students in the global market.”

As a result of their Rookie of the Year award, student from the FIRST Robotics team have been invited to compete in the Nationals, located in St. Louis, MO. The Innovation Inspiration School Grant

Program will allow secondary schools to compete for U.S. Department of Education grants to support non-traditional STEM education. It encourages schools to establish partnerships with the private sector, both for material support and to provide mentors who can serve as role models—further enriching students’ learning experiences.

State Senator Shaheen takes time to celebrate the victories of the FIRST Robotics team at Windham High School: Mentor and instructor Kathy Weise, coach and technology instructor Scott Kukshtel, Xavier Camacho, Jake Matthews, Fred Parker, Patrick Ronayne, Senator Jeanne Shaheen, Nolan Hansen, Amy Caron, Max Del Rio, College Mentor Brendan Browne, Josh Hebert, David Hutchings, Tyler Caron, and Principal Tom Murphy

submitted by Pelham High School On the 41st anniversary of Earth Day, a peach tree was planted by students in the Recycling Club at Pelham High School. The Recycling Club has been in existence for three years and works to maintain the recycling of plastics, cans, and paper in the high school. The focus of the Recycling Club is to emphasize the importance of reusing materials, and reducing the consumption of consumable items such as paper and plastics. The Recycling Club was also encouraged to learn that the Town of Pelham was recently awarded recognition for their efforts to recycle on a national level.

Windham Presbyterian Church Celebrates Easter ‘SonRise’ Service

Tey gathered to Praise His name during Windham Presbyterian Church’s sunrise service

by Doug Robinson The thick, pea-soup fog of the early morning

air challenged the sun from appearing above during Windham Presbyterian Church’s Easter sunrise service. The tranquil, green knoll overlooking

the orchards has been the home of their early morning service for decades. Deer have been seen meandering while the birds sing in harmony in the trees above. Each year, a small gathering of worshippers gather to celebrate Jesus has Risen during the early morning hours and participate in God’s glory of a new day dawned. “Christ the Lord is Risen Today,” “Christ Arose,” and “He is Lord” were the songs of choice and were sung in unison by all who attended.

Reflections of Honor,

Grace, and Gratitude were expressed. The serenity and peace of the moment allowed each worshipper to participate in their private moment of solitude with God.

After the Sunrise Service, all returned to the church and attended a hot breakfast, which was hosted by the Outreach Committee.
