TWHS Students Contribute to City of Character Calendar


Topeka West High School hosted the unveiling ceremony for the Topeka City of Character 2017 calendar. Sponsored by the Topeka Capital-Journal, the calendar features the photographic work of TWHS juniors and seniors in David Meske’s JAG, or Jobs for America’s Graduates, class.




The students in the class worked together on the content of the calendar, which includes photos, quotes and words associated with character traits, like hospitality, respect and wisdom. The kids were proud to show off their handiwork to the audience, which included representatives from the Topeka Chamber of Commerce and students from nearby McClure Elementary. McClure boasts a character education program and the young students were eager to see traits they have learned about being featured in the calendar.


The finished product is an absolutely beautiful 12 month calendar that contains stunning images of familiar Topeka landmarks, such as the Brown v. Board building, Washburn University and Grace Cathedral. Calendars can be purchased by visiting http://www.topekacharacter.org/support2.html

Great work, Chargers!
