Teens Hear How to Avoid Debt
These are some of the young folks who received advice on avoiding debt and investing wisely from Jeremy Johnson at the Library Monday.
Certified Financial Planner Jeremy Johnson (assisted by his wife Sarah) discused topics from his book, "Making Work Optional".
Among the topics Mr. Johnson presented examples of the positive effect of compounded gains of early and steady investments and the negative impact of compounding credit debt. Several in attendance received free copies of Mr. Johnson's book (also authored by his partners, Jay Kelly and Lenny Henderson). For more information visit when it is completed.
Chautauqua Characters
Five of Mrs. Lykins' CHS 10th Graders presented their Chautauqua Characters Monday at the Library.
Minnie Pearl was presented by Kelsey Hewlett. Dorothy Parker was presented by Tabetha Gill.
Zelda Fitzgerald was presented by Rebyl Richardson. Louisa May Alcott was presented by Alicia Thompson.

These students researched their characters by reading several books. This is the 3rd annual Chautauqua presentation by Mrs. Lykins' class. Last Saturday they auditioned at OSU-Tulsa for the Tulsa Chautauqua this summer. They gave their presentation from memory.
Note: The linked web sites for the characters were selected by Ted Wright (after a quick search) and are not a part of this website. Jack London was presented by Willie Horn.
