Hesston High became a stop for a group of international teachers on a tour of South Central Kansas schools through the Wichita Rotary Club’s Rotary Inter-country Teacher Exchange Program (RITE) which was established in 1996. 

Dalia Hale, one of the organizers of the tour and a member of the Rotary Club, said she connected with her colleague and Hesston High Spanish teacher Lucy Christian, to coordinate the day-trip to Hesston. 

“Lucy called me and said she was coming out of retirement and she was teaching in Hesston and asked if I could bring some of the teachers here. We’re here because of her connection,” said Hale. 

Christian said hosting the teachers presented a unique opportunity for her students to interact with native Spanish speakers. 

“According to our Kansas standards, we must involve the community.  We can’t go out to the community, but this is my  way of brining the Hispanic community to you.  I’ve done this before and it has been an amazing experience,” she said. 

In her classroom, Christian noted she saw students flourish.

A unique and spontaneous art exhibit is hanging at Hesston Public Library. Over the last 18 months, library staff have collected the assortment of items used as bookmarks and forgotten upon return to the library. 

According to Hesston Public Library Director Libby Albers, the whole exhibition started with a single banana peel. 

“We had a couple doozies come in. It makes you think about all the random things people use as bookmarks and then forget.  We said ‘Hey, lets start throwing all those things found in books into a tub and we’ll do some kind of art display later on.’” Albers said. 

All of the items were collected between 2016 and 2017.
