Faculty members at Harrisonville High School have chosen seniors Lanie Lou Carl and Jackson Dahn as Students of the Month for January. They were selected for their character, citizenship and academics.

Outside of school, she enjoys going to concerts and watching Jeopardy. Carl is undecided on a college, but she plans to major in environmental engineering.
Dahn, the son of Patti Brinkley and Tim Dahn, is vice-president of the National Honor Society and participants in golf. He also enjoys building computers and watching movies.
Dahn plans to attend the University of Michigan and earn a degree in either aerospace engineering or physics.
Ray-Pec chooses two for leadership seminar
Raymore-Peculiar High School has nominated Ella Schnake and alternate Te’a White to attend the Missouri Leadership Seminar next summer at the University of Central Missouri.
The weekend seminar immerses a select high school sophomores in leadership activities. It’s free to the student because expenses of roughly $300 are covered by local clubs and civic organizations.
Insurance company supports Bright Futures
Stafford & Stafford Insurance raised $1,392.59 late last year for Bright Futures Harrisonville through a basket auction as part of an annual car show.
The donation will be used for the Food 4 Thought Backpack program which provides child-friendly, nutritious food over the weekend.
