West County was one of only 11 Missouri school districts who attended MOREnet's annual TechKnowledge Day at the capitol building in Jefferson City.
Twenty two students represented West County at the recent event, which showcases Missouri students' work on technology-related projects. Lawmakers and other visitors to the capitol were able to view the students' displays as well as ask questions about their work.
West County Middle School students Jacob Briley, Matthew Clifton, Garrett Knox and Emma Mackay brought their own photographs and projects to display to show off their photo editing skills. These students work after school on projects with co-sponsors Sandi Coffman and Pam Clifton as part of the school's Tech Club.
West County High School students brought framed photos and bound artwork for display, and guests were able to view their student-created webpages as well as a slideshow of their edited images.
Those students representing WCHS included Shelby Brownwell, Dylan Burns, Harley Clubb, Courtney Denny, Katlyn Fuhrmeister, Nicholas Gamblin, Riley Hill, Lauren Hinson, Tina King, Micki Perkins, Teddy Scott, Destinee Wood, Daisha Snyder, Zach Hampton, Kourtney Hackworth, Arminda Politte, Devyn Lewis and Nathan Hicks.
Missouri Representative Linda Black took time to meet with the West County students and sponsors, and the group then took a guided tour before leaving the capitol.
In addition to West County, students and sponsors from Dallas, Grandview, Hollister, Kansas City 33, Lathrop, Macon Co., Monett, Reeds Spring, Rockwood School and Trenton attended the event.
