EAST Conference 2016 was held Tuesday, March 15 through Thursday, March 17. The following team of students represented the Mena Middle School EAST program: Avery Bowling, Bethany Cude, Ally Wright, Lauren Sikes, Olivia Ferguson, Ciara Lance, Cypriss Pruitt, and Kaitlyn Titsworth. The students worked extremely hard preparing for conference.
Kaitlyn Titsworth and Avery Bowling presented their EAST program along with various EAST projects the students have been involved with during this school year to a panel of judges. All of the team members had to present to other EAST programs, businesses, EAST staff, and the public. These students also had the opportunity to attend breakout sessions to learn more about software programs, EAST related projects, etc. Mrs. Sikes is extremely proud of the way these students conducted themselves on the trip and the hard work they put in to making this year’s EAST conference a huge success.
