They were responsible for the presentation, the activities prepared for the students which included creating stickers to remind the students to be drug and alcohol free, and had the students view a video about peer pressure.

This week’s “Student Spotlight of the Week” is Austin Elmore (16). He is currently a junior here at Sidney High School. Elmore is a football player here and a member of journalism. His favorite subject Is history. “Diversity, and having great teachers,” Austin replied when asked what his favorite thing about SHS was. Other than Sidney, he has also attended Findlay City Schools until ’04, and Piqua from ’04 to ’08. Austin’s favorite thing to do outside of school is play video games, TWEET, and hanging out with friends. He looks forward to his senior season of football, and continuing to grow as a person. I asked Austin what he wanted to be when he grew up and he replied, “I want to be the play-by-play radio voice of the Cincinnati Bengals or Cincinnati Reds.”
