ACASC MEMBERS ELECT 2017-2018 STUDENT MEMBER OF THE BOARD, ACASC PRESIDENT

acasc Alexis Lashbaugh, Delanie Blubaugh to Represent School System on County Student Council

The Allegany County Association of Student Councils (ACASC) recently held its annual elections for the non-voting Student Member of the Board of Education (SMOB) and association officers for the 2017-2018 school year. Alexis Lashbaugh of Allegany High School and Delanie Blubaugh, also of Allegany High School, will become the newest SMOB and ACASC president respectively. Lashbaugh will succeed Zachary Sterne on the school board and as vice-president of ACASC. Blubaugh will serve as the alternate SMOB in addition to the ACASC president.
 
Alexis is a member of the National Honor Society and consistently makes the Principal’s Honor Roll. She feels that she is well qualified for this position because of her leadership and time management skills. “I have attended multiple leadership conferences within the school year which have provided me with quality leadership skills.” She went on to say, “I am involved with school-related activities, but I do not overwhelm myself. I manage my time well.”
 
As the SMOB, Alexis plans to give detailed reports to members of the ACASC and her peers. “I will meet with other student councils and create SMOB reports to update my peers on the latest news. I will also serve as a role model for those who follow me.”
 
Delanie Blubaugh is involved in a number of organizations at Allegany High School. She feels that she is well prepared to lead the members of ACASC. “I’m very dedicated to student council and take great pride in having the opportunity and ability to voice opinions as a representative in government.” She continued, “I’m well qualified as I’ve been in student council since middle school and have held many positions on school, county, and state levels.”
 
Delanie has several plans during her term as the president of ACASC. “I’d love to work with three local groups such as the Allegany County Animal Shelter, Resources for Independence and the Cumberland Food Bank.” She went on to say, “I’d also like to organize public forums and seminars dealing with different issues, specifically student safety.”
 
All candidates were evaluated on poise, attire, communication skills, general knowledge, speech, and leadership potential. Other 2017-2018 officers of ACASC include Jocelyn Weston, Public Relations Officer, Allegany High School; Umailla Fatima, Secretary/Treasurer, Allegany High School; Peyton Porter, Parliamentarian/Sergeant at Arms, Mountain Ridge High School; Haley Llewellyn, 2nd Vice President/Middle School Representative, Westmar Middle School.

History of Allegany

Allegany High School was initially a secondary education school held on Maryland Avenue. The school had many different locations including the building on Greene Street, which was used as a combined middle/high school until the spring of 1926. At that time, the building now known as Allegany High School had been completed and was prepared to accept Greene Street’s high school students. Middle school students remained on Greene Street until the school later burned down in 1932. “Camp Hill,” the site of the present day Allegany, was a federal army camp during the Civil War.

The “Camper” mascot is a source of much confusion. Many think the name refers to Campobello, a Shawnee Indian Tribe camp, from which the federal army took their name during the Civil War. This, however, is a misconception. The most widely accepted theory is that Civil War General Lewis Wallace and his men began calling the site that during their time here. The word Campobello in fact does not appear in any Native American language and is derived from Latin, meaning “camp of war”.

Allegany High School, with an enrollment of approximately 670 students, focuses on student achievement and success in all areas of education through a combined effort of students, faculty, staff, home, and community. The class of 2008 marked an important milestone for Allegany: the students were the 120th class to graduate from the long-standing institution.

Vision/Mission Statements

Allegany High School


MISSION STATEMENT

Education must be a cooperative effort involving the student, the teacher, the home, the school, and the community. Recognizing that the student must be the focal point of our education program, we must instill a desire for learning and create a learning environment in which the student can learn and develop according to ability and interest. The curriculum must emphasize life skills, preparation for continuing education, and preparation for employment to enable our students to become responsible citizens and enjoy a productive life. The school must ensure an atmosphere that will promote learning through the cooperative effort of staff, students, family, and community working together.
