Senator Square: Volunteers to judge senior projects sought

For the Nevada Appeal

Corina Flansberg is working as the Senior Projects coordinator for Carson High School this year. We are in the process of recruitment of volunteers for the panels on May 20 and 21.

Invitations have been sent out to previous volunteers but are going out later this year than years before because of the change in the panel dates. We have a number of concerned past volunteers/participants.

Portfolios will be available for evaluation May 8-21. There are recommended but not required training sessions May 11, 13 and 15. Each of the trainings is an hour and a half long.

Volunteering will be a commitment of about six hours. This six hours includes only about two hours that are time specific and the other four hours can be at their leisure within the time frame of May 8-19.

Interested people can contact Flansberg for more information, to request a personal invitation or a general flier for their organization.

Contact Flansberg at or leave a message at 283-1945.

The CHS National Honor Society sent a group of five officers to a leadership conference in Chicago.
