What makes Garden County great!?!

What makes Garden County great is the endless love and support from the community members. Starting out as a new teacher is terrifying and daunting, even if your originally from the community, but everyone has made it so easy to adjust. The staff at GCS has done so much to make sure that I'm doing alright and going out of their way to help and advise me. I feel honored to work here with some of the best teachers and support staff. _________________________________________________

Chadron State College Scholastic Contest Results
GCHS was one of 43 schools that attended the annual Chadron State College Scholastic contest on April 7th, 2017. The following students were nominated by their teachers to represent GCHS: Kaylee Bell, Ozzy Cano, Drake Carmack, Ariela Collazo, Nick Koppman, Cole Kramer, Noah Lake, Josh Mason, Connor McCord, Blake McCormick, Taylor McKay, Bailey Miller, Isaiah Neis, Owen Rogers, Mark Schwartz, Autumn Smith, Josh Wheeler, Aaron Wheeler, Drake Yates, Mason Zorn, Alex VanWey, Reid Spady, Reggie Deaver, and Zoe Godoy. Some noteworthy competitors were Cole Kramer who placed 10th in Business Law, and Josh Mason who placed 4th in Nebraska History. Our biggest winners of the day went to our Eagle Cook-off Team: Mason Zorn, Reid Spady and Isaiah Neis who got 1st place. The team of chefs was challenged to make a breakfast that would be quick and easy for a student living in a dorm room. They created a winning breakfast sandwich made of toast, sausage, egg and cheese, and even incorporated the mystery ingredient – miso paste – that won the judges votes. As a result of winning, our senior competitor, Mason Zorn, will receive the Scholastic Achievement Award that will cover full tuition for his first year of school. That’s a pretty good sandwich! Great work to the team and all of our students who competed that day.

Girls JH Track Reached New PR Scores with Steeper Competition and Better Weather By Kathryn Beberniss
Posted on 04/13/2017
Tuesday April 11th brought perfect track weather at Grant, Nebraska. Elated with a gentle breeze and tolerable temperatures, the girls running the 400M relay were pumped to cut off four seconds from last week's time clocking in a 1:00.08 time. Kaitlyn Hunt started off the blocks as the starter gun shot and then handed off smoothly to Kaylee Leach, who pedaled up fast on Kamry Kramer. Once the baton was in Kramer's hand, she was striding and gaining on the competition, which left the anchor work to Maddie Lake who finished a strong fourth place finish against experienced competition.  more

Stuco Field Trip
Posted on 03/23/2017
Recently the Garden County High School Student Council was fortunate enough to take a field trip and explore western Nebraska's past. We started off the day with a stop at the Mari Sandoz Heritage Center at Chadron State College. This museum is dedicated to preserving the work of Nebraska author Mari Sandoz in addition to showcasing the region's rich ranching background. Our STUCO learned about how Mari Sandoz taught the world about western Nebraska, and how she worked her way to become a well renowned author across the nation. They learned about the different titles that related specifically to western Nebraska and each were given a complimentary packet of short stories written by Mari. Once the Sandoz part of the museum was complete our tour moved to the basement of the museum where students learned about the foundations of ranching in these lands. The museum had a variety of artifacts from the time including saddles, tack, and gear used by some of the first cattlemen of the area. They also learned about the importance of ranching to promote American settlement of the region.  more
