GHS Hosts 300 at State Student Council


On Oct. 30, hundreds of middle and high school student council members from across Montana converged in Glasgow for the 2016 Montana Association of Student Council Conference. The event was coordinated and hosted by the Glasgow Student Council and led by State Student Council President, Glasgow’s own Luke Breigenzer.

According to Breigenzer, students travelled from all over the state from as far as Stevensville, Mont. to Baker, Mont. “The idea is to have speakers to learn new ideas, activities to get people talking about different ideas, and to have that fun factor,” said Breigenzer.

Among the speakers were Director of Zoo Montana in Billings, Jeff Ewelt, also known as Jeff the Nature Guy from his online videos. Also speaking was Aaron Davis, who was a member of the 1994 Nebraska National Champion Football Team, who shared a message on finding your personal attitude to go out and do good things. Next was Lance Lanning of Havre, who shared a message on making good decisions and how the decisions you make can have lasting affects. Lastly, was Stu Shaffer and the traveling junk show who carries a message of high-energy leadership.

“This has been quite the experience for me,” said Breigenzer on organizing the event, “I am totally amazed by the efforts of our Glasgow people in putting on the event and overcoming issues.” Breigenzer was genuinely pleased with the event come Tuesday during the interview. “I’ve had a lot of fun, and met a lot of cool people. Especially the dance last night [Monday, Oct. 31] it was definitely hard to wake up this morning, but it was great.”

Breigenzer was also grateful for the large show of support they received from the community in putting on the event. “I just want to say a big thank you to all of the families that housed people, and a big thank you to all the local community businesses for supporting us.”
