East Clinton Middle School went to Project TRUST for a three-day and two-night camp to learn about respect, understanding, student teamwork, and skills needed to stand up for others.

This camp is meant to teach students about the negative impacts of bullying and give them some strategies or tools to use at school to help stand up for others and put an end to bullying.

Forty-six middle school students traveled to Camp Kern with six EC staff members and 13 high school counselors. Students participated in group games, team work exercises, low ropes and obstacle courses, as well as “boundary breaking” conversations.

Students were given the opportunity to discuss their schools, homes, and their hopes and dreams for the future in order to help improve the unity of ECMS.

East Clinton Project TRUST would like to thank Robbin Luck, Eric Magee, John Stanley and the board of education for supporting this camp. The team also thanks the staff at Camp Kern for always taking good care of the campers.

Hoops for TRUST

Project TRUST will be hosting East Clinton’s alumni basketball event at 5 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 30 at the ECHS gymnasium with proceeds going to Project TRUST.

If you are interested in playing alumni basketball you will have two options for play. Instead of trying to have a men’s and women’s game they will be having “Fun” and “Competitive” games. If you are wanting to have a good time and play a casual game of basketball you can sign up for a “Fun” game. If you are looking to play more competitively you can sign up for a “Competitive” game.

There is a registration fee to play;. Admission to watch the event is free, and a donation box will be placed at the entrance.
