Food for Sierra High Food Closet Filled by SITD
 

During long holidays many students and their families experience food insecurity. SITD has generously helped to keep the food closet at Sierra High stocked with food. In past years, the S-Club, which is a high school leadership club, has maintained the food closet. Since COVID, SITD has not sponsored a S-Club at Sierra High School (SHS).

Dream It Be It Program at Truckee HS

story thumbnail
 
Joan Kreamer, Joyce Brady and Pam English prepared the 2-day Dream It Be It Program (DIBI)  program at Truckee High School. The program was presented in the Wellness Center with Specialist, Antje Thompson, on November 15th and December 6th. In the 5 hours of class time we addressed personality traits and values related to careers, dreaming of a future, overcoming obstacles, making SMART goals and stress management with both discussion and activities. We had a number of career speakers, all of whom faced challenges and changes as their lives progressed. SITD members Pati Johnson and Marie Strassburger discussed their career paths. On the second day, we also included applying for scholarships, taking courses at Sierra College, mentoring and managing stress. Chris Seitz helped on the final day coordinating the arrival and departure of the speakers.

Installation of New Board

The Installation of the new board was held at Laura Mohun’s home... inside because of threatening rain. Shirley Phelan organized the delicious dinner from Smokey’s. SusanHorst, District 5 Director, was our installing officer. She noted that incoming President Denise has chosen for her motto, “When women support each other, incredible things happen.” As small gifts today for our incoming officers and board of directors, she has selected a small succulent plant and you can read on page 5 why it was chosen. She then specified the responsibilities of each office asking the new officers if they agreed to accept their responsibilities. Fortunately, they did. Leslie Dugger stood in for Cathy Leibow and Nancy Davis, President- elect and Treasurer, who could not attend.
