As a student body we raised $2678 in the annual and very competitive Penny Wars! It was truly a success. Student Council spent two weeks holding jars for students to put their change in. Student Council did a great job in persuading people to donate all their change and dollar bills. “The student body crushed every record, I am so proud,” said Mr. White, Vice Principal. “The student body is responsible for this success, it is amazing how they opened their pockets and gave so much to penny wars,” said Mrs. Brotherson, Student Council Advisor.

Payson High School students competed in the first annual Gender Wars competition January 21. Male and female students competed in such events as marshmellow stuffing, plunger racing, bobbing for onions and a burping contest. Although the competition was close, the winning gender was the females. At the end of the contests students cheered for Mr. Peery who was watching over his last assembly as principal of Payson High School.
