GEMS Pic A GEM of a program

Making the transition from elementary to middle school can be daunting and riddled with self-doubt. That’s exactly why Renata Ingram, director of the Henry County Public Schools Family Resource Center, began offering a support and development group about seven years ago.

Girls Empowered and Motivated to Succeed (GEMS) is offered to all fifth grade girls at each elementary school in the district over the course of the school year. The group meets after school one day each week for five to six weeks, enjoying guest speakers, crafts, physical activity and lots of affirmation.

HamRadioClass Hamming It Up at HCMS

As a child, Steve Martell enjoyed visits from his grandfather, who happened to be one of the leading ham radio operators in Kansas.

“When my grandfather would come out to visit, he would have his big camper and have the antenna he’d set up in the backyard and he got me interested in ham radio,” Martell, an eighth grade science teacher at Henry County Middle School, said. “Fast forward to college, some of the guys who were in the meteorology department that I was roommates with were required to have their ham radio license when they were out storm chasing, so that increased my interest. Then in 2002, I got my license. In 2016 I finally got around to upgrading my license to the middle level, the general class, which gives me more privileges. I’m getting back into it and I enjoy it, chasing DX – trying to make contacts with operators from all over the world – those long-distance communications.”
