Red For Ed https://rchsrushlite.com/1366/entertainment/red-for-ed/ Mon, 09 Dec 2019 20:01:12 +0000 https://rchsrushlite.com/?p=1366 As many students at RCHS can recall, school on Tuesday, November 19th was cancelled. Unlike many other ordinary school cancellations, weather wasn’t the cause. 

Thousands of students and teachers across Indiana, including many from RCHS, gathered at the Indiana state house to rally with the Red for Ed movement. For years, teachers have had to deal with problems about renewing their licenses, standardized tests, and pay issues. The Red for Ed movement is trying to change that by making student and teachers voices heard.

Coming from across the Atlantic Ocean, we have Keting Li, a junior from China.  Rushville High School hosted seven exchange students this year, and this is the final student in our segment.

Li states that “the people living in Rushville are friendly.”  He loves the fact that he has people to talk to, and people that say nice things about him.  His favorite thing about Rushville is the beautiful town.  He loves seeing all of the fall colors that Rushville has to offer!  When I asked him if there were any dislikes, it did not take him a second to say no!  He loves the town, and says “there is nothing wrong”.

Li wants to attend UCI in Los Angeles to become a pilot.  He says that he loves it here in the United States, and cannot wait to come back!

From Thailand to Indiana https://rchsrushlite.com/1314/entertainment/from-thailand-to-indiana/ Mon, 02 Dec 2019 20:08:35 +0000 https://rchsrushlite.com/?p=1314 Editor’s Note:  This is the sixth article in our Foreign Exchange Student series.  To view other spotlights, click on the “Foreign Exchange Student” button at the bottom of this article.

Thailand has students that participate in the Foreign Exchange Student program every school year.  They have sent Phurin Chindapornpitak to Rushville, Indiana this school year.

Chindapornpitak loves Rushville!  He says that he “loves the weather, hanging out with friends, coming to school, and the Rushville FFA Chapter”.  He loves the fact that there are a ton of activities that he can do here at Rushville, and that he he can do as much as he wants!  He didn’t have many dislikes about Rushville.  He tells me that he “does not like the book fees of $200”.  He also stated that there is not as much good food in the school cafeteria like back in Thailand.

Phurin, a junior, tells me that he has not figured out where he wants to go to college yet, but he does want to be a doctor after high school.  He stated that he wants to come back to the United States, and establish residency in Los Angeles.
