DISTRICT RALLY 2017
On October 21st, 132 heroes from all over District 1 gathered at Lambert’s Superhero themed District Rally. These heroes represented up to ten different schools (even colleges!): Lambert, Alpharetta, South Forsyth, North Forsyth, Meadowcreek, Greater Atlanta Christian School, Berkmar, Wake Forest, and Mount Vernon! Right from the beginning, attendees were invited to an exciting icebreaker. After the majority of delegates had checked in, everyone was introduced to the leaders: Mr./Mrs. Incredible, Batman/Batwoman, Superman/Supergirl, Scarlet Witch/Quicksilver, and Captain America/Black Widow. The action-packed day consisted of 2 eye-opening workshops, 5 idea-sharing swap shop topics, and an exhilarating relay at the end. Students got the opportunity to hone their leadership skills, bond with students from other schools, and have tons of fun. The attendees truly did find their INNER HERO!
LOOKING BACK ON DISTRICT RALLY 2016
Lambert High School took home the gold with an action-packed District 1 rally! The Olympic-themed rally rounded-up the schools from across district one, uniting the colors of the Olympic rings. Upon arrival, delegates were divided into five color teams - red, blue, yellow, green, and black. From the opening ceremony, to the dodgeball competition, to the closing ceremony, spirit was at an all-time high. After the ceremonial torch lighting, attendees were spoken to by Kathy Jones, a GASC alum, about leadership and teamwork. Next, guests made their way to either a workshop about first impressions for veterans, or an informational session for newbies. Throughout the day, students were exposed to leadership training, built interpersonal skills, learned more about GASC, and had an awesome time while doing so!
