The other day I sat down with our very own Student Council, and asked them some questions for the Battle Cry. One of the questions I asked them was, “What will you do for White Knoll Middle?” D’Asia White responded with, “This year I would like to do things to help our community and our school.” “However, Salena Robinson said she would like to have more school activities. I was impressed with their answers, and continued with,“If you could change anything in the school what would it be?” Ammi Zimmerman replied that he, “would make people responsible for their actions and not punish the whole grade just for one's actions.“ Although Salena Robinson said something that would really make 7th and 8th graders happy (ask her what she said!) she mentioned she would allow 7th and 8th graders to go upstairs in the morning to their lockers. “Have you ever thought about being an elected official in our government? If so, what office would you run for? If not what would you like your career be?” Most of them said no, and didn't know what they wanted to be, except for Ammi Zimmerman, who said, “ I have thought about running as an elected official for the U.S., and if I did, I would be the president because I am really persuasive. But, I would like to be an engineer as an adult.” Soon I wanted to know why they ran. Most of them said it was because they had good ideas, but Salena Robinson said she ran for the responsibility. Lastly I asked them what college they wanted to go to? Most of them didn't know but Alissa Myers said Columbia College. Our student council represents us, so its up to us to let them know what we think!

Wesley Hughes and Kara Yandle conducted an interview for one of the volleyball captains, Alex Williams (8th gr.)

1.What inspired you to play volleyball?

I played softball for 7 years and wanted to give volleyball a try when I got to middle school.

2.How old were you when you started volleyball?

I started playing volleyball at age 12.

3.How do you think WKMS volleyball is doing this year?

I think our team is very good. We have lots of great talent on the team. We are one of the few teams that stay classy throughout the season. We have great sportsmanship and work together very well. Our season is going great!

4..How do you feel before every game?

Before every game, I basically think about what I can do better since the last game and really focus on it that game. I really pay attention to my technique in warm-ups so I can do that during the game.

5.Do you have any pre-game rituals?

All of the eighth graders throw a volleyball at the opposing team's flag in the gym as a tradition and we always run out of the locker room as a team as our first warm-up.

Thank you, Alex. We are proud of your dedication to volleyball and to White Knoll. Good luck in the future!

Honor choirs from Carolina Springs Middle, White Knoll Middle and White Knoll High Schools came together for a night celebrating the greatness of America.

The 100-member choir presented, “Palmetto Pride:

A Patriotic Tribute” featuring several patriotic songs. The performance served to honor first responders from across the Midlands during the recent flood/disaster, often called, #SCFlood, and later coined #SCStrong.

Page 12 T H E B A T TL E C R Y VOLUME 24 ISSUE 3 SC Flood As many of you know, we have recently had the “1,000-year Flood” in our home, South Carolina. Many people have been affected by this flood, but our community is strong enough to pull through and fight this battle. It will take many months, maybe years of work to restore our community, but we are #SCSTRONG!
