New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - October 9, 1996, New Braunfels, Texas HeraldZeltuna n Wednesday October Q 1QQR n CHS welcomes new students For new students the transition between schools can be a very difficult process Making their way through the halls and seeing many new faces may create a barrier in communication with the other students To keep this from happening and to get the new students involved in the school the Canyon High School Student Council and the Counselors gave a New Student party Oct 1 One hundred new students were invited to the CHS Commons to enjoy the party The party was started by introducing the principal Will Krieg and our counseling staff The student council members hosting the event were introduced and the new students were brought up to speed on the schools activities and functions The students enjoyed cakes and cookies during the presentations Since many of the new students didnt know each other the student council played an icebreaker to help the students meet one another The object of the game was to get someone they didnt know to do an activity and sign a paper The first student finished won a prize At the end of the party a drawing took place to give out prizes Many of the prizes were donated by different military groups All the students had a great time and were grateful for the recognition Clinton Flume Guest Column Student Council officers Scott Messina and Leah Balderson As homecoming week approaches many of the activities are beginning Homecoming wall banners are being decorated and put up and the selection for Homecoming Queen is near On October 10 all of the student body will vote for its choice for Homecoming Queen This years candidates are the lovely Gail Gitcho Damey Meyer Tyana Michalec and Renessa Reeh Best of luck to each of them With all the festivities and activities in the school the student council members still make an effort to get to know as many people as possible Hopefully they make new students feel more at home As for homecoming it has just begun and will prove to be an awesome task Clinton Flume is a member of the Canyon High School Student Teamwork a key to success In 1943 he was playing in fivcdollara week comedy clubs His wife was pregnant with their first child and they needed money to raise a family His uncle offered him a job in his butcher shop but before giving up his show business dream he stopped at a Catholic church and according to tradition prayed to St Jude for direction Soon after this prayer his act was booked at Chez Paris in Chicago The fiveyear booking helped launch his television career Danny Thomas had made it to the big time Out of gratitude he built one of the best hospitals for children in the world St Judes in Memphis Tenn To Catholic believers St Judes saint in charge of impossible acts Danny Thomas began funding the hospital in 1957 with the mission to make war against killer diseases that strike the young The impossible became possible Largely because of the continued devotion of Danny Thomas the survival rate for acute lymphocytic leukemia advanced from 4 percent in 1962 to 73 percent in 1991 the survival rate for nonHodgkin lymphoma moved from 7 percent to 80 percent According to his friend Dave Thomas founder of Wendys International Dannys success was based on simple principles integrity devotion to service inspiring others to a cause greater than self interest To make the impossible possible we must first treat others right by mastering three fundamentals empathy teamwork and support The biggest handicap we must all overcome is false pride We are born with the drive to put ourselves first to consider ourselves the most important force in the universe We cant be successful be fulfilled until we leam to consider others just as important as ourselves Mary Kay Ash founder of Mary Kay Cosmetics has a talent for feeling what the other person feels She has developed a caring attitude an empathetic spirit Mary Kay says that she developed this caring attitude by imagining that all the people she meets have a sign around their neck that reads Make me feel People feel important when they become totally involved in a project that becomes bigger than their individual desires A team of talented people working toward one goal can complete seemingly impossible tasks TEAM can be an acronym for Together Everyone Accomplishes More How do we build harmonious teams We must have respect for every individuals contribution We learn to John I Walker Guest Column accentuate the positive and ignore the negative in ourselves and others As we praise the better the better becomes best When we ignore the bad the bad begins to shrivel like unwatercd grass When people have respect for each other they go out of their way to support the common good Imagine that your team has a pep rally You may say to yourself 1 dont need that hokum Im so excited about this team project Im going to stay home and do some work to get our goals accomplished Let the others go to the pep rally They need Missing a rally is similar to Sir Lancelot saying The round table discussion who needs it Im missing the meeting so Ill have time to slay more Lancelot may slay a dragon or two The rest of the knights slay none because they need the boldness of his character to give them courage to get out of their comfort zone and into the woods In turn Lancelot develops more courage himself by seeing the courage of others increase Teamwork is a windowopening opportunity that involves individual sacrifice for the strength of the common good Empathy and support unite a team Team unity strengthens each individual In helping each other we make the impossible possible John Ingram Walker lives in the New
