MERRILLVILLE | Recently, the Merrillville High School STAND (Socially Together And Naturally Diverse) members along with their sponsors Ms. Beverly VanDrunen and Mr. Michael Engle had a call out meeting for the Merrillville Intermediate School students.

The Ice Cream Social was right after school in MIS cafeteria and all interested 5th and 6th grade students were welcome to come. The MIS students were grouped up with the High School students for activities along with question and answers about STAND. Mr. Danny Lackey, who was the High School’s STAND sponsor, came by to help out. The MIS Stand Sponsors this year are Ms. Karen Jones and Ms. Danielle Hill. STAND has been at MIS for many years now. Many veteran 6th grade STAND member faces along with new 5th grade faces were present.

All students enjoyed learning the differences about each other. We can all be different and still get along peacefully.
