My name is Ally Phillips and my Genius Learning project I’ve been working on for the past month is a moveable mural for the Centura band room. The mural is of a Centurion or Spartan soldier that will be 9′ tall when it is finally finished. Right now it is going through final touches before it is put on the band room wall. It is a showcase of the extra mile I’ve gone for the band program.

Teens in the Driver Seat believes that young drivers are more effective at communicating to their peers than anyone else. The TDS Cup competition motivates teens to compete with one another to help get the word out about positive driving behaviors. Each TDS team entering the competition is awarded points for every safe-driving activity promoted in its school and community about the top five driving risks: driving at night; speeding and street racing; distractions, such as cell phones and teen passengers; not wearing a seat belt; and impaired driving.
Thirty-one schools across Nebraska are working on reducing teen related crashes, injuries and deaths through the use of the Teens in the Driver Seat program. This is the fifth year in a row that Centura has ranked among the top three places for their efforts. Centura Student Council’s 28 members help promote the program at Centura Public Schools.
