Steel Valley High School’s Teacher of Gifted Education, Mr. Shawn McCallister, took a group of high school students to CMU’s Entertainment Technology Center on February 18. The students had the opportunity to “play” with some of the creations and got the chance to see some current CMU teams working collaboratively on various projects. One of their favorites was the virtual reality room. This was a great experience for the students and an opportunity for them to learn more about various careers and to simply expand their horizons.

Steel Valley SADD members attended the Annual Pennsylvania SADD State Conference at Seven Springs Resort on November 4. There, they joined nearly 1000 other SADD students from across Pennsylvania. They heard from Keystone Speaker, De’Marco Fomby about how to combine their own unique passions and skills to create a strategy that will help them positively impact the people around them. They danced to the SADD Shuffle and attended a variety of workshops such as “Text Less Live More”, “My Life Sentence” that was presented by a father who lost his teenaged son to driving while under the influence, “Minding Your Mind” about mental health, and Share the Keys which is a data-driven program designed to reduce teen driver crash risks.
