Stats of the Rainbow!

Hey all! There is a new bulletin up! It contains statistics of the LGBTQ+ community, thus Stats of the Rainbow, get it? There is many statistics about what people in the LGBTQ+ plus community go through. If you tell me something new you learned from this bulletin and your thoughts on it, I’ll give you a small packet of Skittles, since the title is based off Skittles catch phrase. I hope you learn something new that you didn’t know!

United We Stand Lecture: Peterson Farm Bros

On Sunday, UWP hosted the Peterson Farm Bros for the United We Stand Lecture. Only one of them showed, who is named Greg, while the other two were busy working. These farm bros have a YouTube channel where they put vlog videos and their famous music parody videos. The biggest take away we had from the lecture was how they educate about farm life through music. Through their music, they promote diversity of agriculture, which isn’t a common one, and help show it’s importance through YouTube. Their website can be found here: https://petersonfarmbrothers.com/ and their YouTube channel can be found here: http://www.youtube.com/petersonfarmbros. Check them out! They have some pretty catchy and entertaining song parodies!

Chancellor Visit

The chancellor came out to Pickard to answer some questions and talk to the residents. It was a blast and he got to answer a bunch of different types of questions. Kieth and Sam went and asked a question or two. I feel like they had a good time there listening to what the chancellor had to say. We got to learn a lot about what the chancellor likes to do in his free time.IMG_0719[1]

Hanukkah

img_06861

I got a board up about Hanukkah with the celebration coming up soon. I thought that with it being a season of many holidays that it would be a good idea to put one up about a holiday that can sometimes not be known about. This way people can go and learn about the history, foods served around the time, and what the celebration usually looks like.
