On September 20, 2010, Student Council members and their families gathered together to celebrate the induction of the students. The theme of installation was “The Beginning of Your Civic Lives.” There were speakers such as Hope Walker, Student Body President of Newberry College, Ryan Duane, Student Body President of Clemson University, and Ebbie Yazdani, Student Body President of USC.
All of the speakers are Dutch Fork alumni who have previously served on Student Council. Nathan Ballentine, State Assemblymen, was also a speaker at the installation for the sixth consecutive year. The speakers had good advice for the upcoming leaders and the parents got to learn more about the responsibility of being a member of Dutch Fork Student Council.
After the speakers, there was a potluck dinner for all of the students and their families. After everyone had eaten, the Student Council officers were sworn in by oath and then they all lit candles signifying the Light of Leadership in their lives.
