Missouri All-State Choir
Congratulations to Kahl Gillispie for being selected to the 2017 Missouri All-State Choir.  Kahl was selected among the top 25% in our South Central District (including Nixa, Willard, Springfield Schools and others) and made eligible to audition for the All-State Choir.  Being selected for the All-State Choir is the highest honor a high school choir student can receive.

Local Students Attend FTA Leadership Meeting

Students from across the state met in Columbia Missouri on the University of Missouri’s campus in Jesse Hall on Wed., Oct. 26, for the Future Teachers of America (FTA) state leadership meeting.  The theme for the meeting was “Change the World… Become a Teacher.”

John Gilbert, a science teacher at Salisbury and a Paralympian, was the keynote speaker.  Mr. Gilbert’s Wheelchair Basketball Team brought home a gold medal from the 2016 Paralympics in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil.  He addressed how teachers have the opportunity to encourage students at pivotal moments, as he spoke about his own life and the challenges he had to face.

The Buffalo High School students that attended the FTA State Meeting were Philip Canole, Bradon Clay, Taylor Holman, Emily Horn, Abigail Todd, and Isabell Waltman, with Mrs. Jill Maddux their sponsor.

“FTA is an excellent way for high school students to explore careers in education,” said Krista Meyer, MSTA’s Director of Student Groups. “If anyone needs optimism about the future of teaching, watching the kids at the FTA state meeting would provide it.”

Bison University-BHS's Early College Program
Beginning this school year, an exciting new program is available to our freshman students named Bison University.  Bison University is a four-year, early college program designed to provide students with numerous opportunities to prepare for not only college, but their future careers as well.  Students enrolled in Bison University will be given the opportunity to declare a course of study while still enrolled in High School and begin taking college coursework that will enable them to receive an education relevant to what they want to pursue post-high school.  Throughout the student’s four years of high school, Bison University students are required to maintain strict criteria to remain enrolled in the program such as a 3.0 GPA and a 95% attendance rate.  Students in the program will also complete twenty-five hours of community service each year as well as three job shadowing experiences.  In the students’ senior  year, they will complete an internship in the occupational field they wish to pursue during the fall semester and will complete a capstone project during their spring semester which brings together all that they have learned about their future occupation, the school they plan on attending, the programs the school offers, and the income-to-debt ratio associated with this career choice (amount of debt to receive degree versus how much they can expect to earn once completing the degree).  The goal of the program is to help our students complete the equivalent of an associate’s degree prior to graduating from Buffalo High School.  For more information about Bison University, please contact Mr. Scott Miller at scott.miller@bisonpride.org.
