CHS prom

Colton High School held this year's junio/ senior prom at Oaks View Acres on South Macksburg Road in Canby. The consensus of the students was the venue was beautiful and the night fun (or awesome). The prom court included Macey Beseau, Shelby Marshall, Sam Spurgeon and Robert Stoddard. The senior class of 2017 voted Allie Belles as prom queen and Ben Booze as prom king.

"The students were wonderful," Tori Hazelton, CHS principal said. "The night was a great success."

Ways to help the Kishpaughs rebuild Circle K Ranch

The Kishpaugh family lost their home and barn in a recent devastating fire. The community and friends have come together to raise money to help the family. Colton Market has a donation can, Union Mills Feed has an account for donations to help with animal feed. In some good news all the horses were rescued from the flames by neighbors and firefighters and the last missing kitty was found later in the week.

Elwood neighbor, Chelsea Skogan-Boyd has organized a raffle with 100 percent of all money collected going directly to the Kishpaugh family.

Career Day at CHS 

Colton High School recently hosted a Career Day. CHS counselor Kelsey Coy said the event was to assist students in understanding the many career paths available to them after high school. She said the goal of the day was to help all students gain insight into several different careers, including the type of training or education needed and the job duties and responsibilities associated with each career.

During the event, students at Colton High School had a chance to participate in four different guest speaking sessions, including careers such as nursing, CADD (computer aided design and drafting), electrician, law enforcement, firefighting, mechanical engineering, quality engineering, entrepreneurship and occupational therapy among others. Students were given a chance to ask questions of all the speakers. The event helped students fulfill a graduation requirement of obtaining a career-related learning experience. There were also sessions offered to help with the college application process.

"Overall, the students and staff gave great feedback about the day," CHS counselor Kelsy Coy said. "We hope to make it an annual event."
