Students from Mid City High School participated in the Iowa Youth Congress Lobby Day in Des Moines. Their role was as representatives for the District as they try to get support for their bill and prepare a presentation to share with other High Schools to recruit members. The bill that Mid City student representatives were trying to get through was on Hands Free Cell Phone Use while driving. The students bill was presented as a companion bill after the two sponsors for the bill got together and compromised on the exact details. Both sponsors believe they have an 80% chance or greater of getting the bills through both houses. Once both houses approve, it goes to the Governor to be signed.
On Friday, November 6, 2015, Mid City Principal, Dr. Jake Klipsch and Associate Principal, Cory Williams, were joined by staff to honor and recognize students for their academic achievements for 2nd Quarter.
