The freshman class came together for their fourth Freshman Ambassador Meeting, where they talked about how to deal with school related stress. Ambassadors created a short movie to show how they personally relieve stress as well as discussed personal outlets they can find around the school.

“Today we were talking about stress and anxiety because high school can get really stressful with homework and relationships and stuff outside of school, so we wanted to help them find ways to relieve their stress and anxiety,” Stephen Henkhaus ’18 said.

Amy Kahle, a Student Family Advocate, was a special guest at the meeting. She explained her role of being a mental health support system, providing students with a safe outlet to go to during the school day. Students were invited to her room to discuss stress and to relax if they needed to.

The freshmen and Ambassadors finished off the meeting by watching Bob Ross to relieve some of the current stress they may have been dealing with.

“The Ambassadors gave some of our ways [of relieving stress] like going to the gym, meditating, or even just watching some Bob Ross for a little bit to just help us calm down,” Henkhaus said.
