PARLIAMENTARY PROCEDURE TEAM

At the beginning of the month, four members competed in the Sub-District Job Interview contest at Fairview on November 2nd. These members were required to prepare a cover letter and resume prior to the competition.
Upon arrival, participants filled out a job application, interviewed for a job, then wrote a follow-up letter to the interviewer, simulating a real-life job interview situation.
Lana Baker placed 3rd in the Senior Division, Ian Hoffman placed 1st in the Senior Division, Brooke Moreland placed 1st in the Freshman Division, and Alora Siegel placed 1st in the Sophomore Division.
