When Kyle Shield talked to students about leadership skills, he knew he could help shape the path for active participants in the community. On Wednesday, March 27th, BK student council held districts. The 14 schools from within district 7 gathered together to exchange ideas and learn more about student council.

Preparation for districts took almost 6 months, such as finding material for the theme, which was “building up leadership.” The gym was decorated with legos and building blocks to reinforce the theme. Each school had a lego piece made of cardboard, and the pieces were put together to build one structure.

STUCO officer Madeline Payne (12) was impressed by the number of people that gathered to prepare for districts.

“So many people had to come and get together to make it all work,” Payne said. “It lowered everyone’s stress.”  

Schools such as Cascia Hall, Holland Hall, Edison, and others greatly benefitted from this gathering. The goal for districts is for every student to learn a new skill that will help them to be successful in the future.

Bishop Kelley was both honored and excited to be the host of districts. The school community was very thankful for BK to hold districts. Despite the stress of making sure everything would be perfect for the guests, Mrs. Gabel thinks it was a success.

“The challenge and the growth we experienced was totally worth it,” Gabel said.

An estimated 700 students from all around Tulsa came to come and learn more about leadership, and how to help with student council at their own schools. BK students executed a good districts, and the students were able to handle being in charge of such a big event.  

It was a challenge to take on such a big event for how small BK is, but that is what makes this school exceptional. District secretary Jenna Swords (12) was proud of all the hard work accomplished.

“I think our student council gained some valuable experience and became closer throughout the process,” Swords said. “I am thrilled with how we pulled it off!”

Bishop Kelley students got to grow into all the responsibility and work the position of hosting required; therefore, districts was a big accomplishment.
