Crusaders Play Laser Tag

Corn, OKLA — The CBA student council planned a unique game of tag for the 2014 back to school party. The students and faculty went to Laser Quest in Oklahoma City for a no holds barred tag as many as you can conquest. On the way, the students were assigned a brother or sister to sit with on the bus. Older students were paired up with younger students, giving them a chance they wouldn’t normally have to talk with each other. Senior Riley Kliewer said “It was interesting and fun to hang out with the younger kids.” History teacher Mr. Schmidt said, “The little sister-big sister program worked well for the girls because they talked on the bus and really got to know each other, but the boys really connected over laser tag.” Laser tag is played in an 8000 square foot warehouse filled with a monstrous multi-level black room. The only available light comes from black lights that are strategically placed throughout the room. There are multiple dark corners and crevices for players to hide. Lasers pierce the air and bounce off of mirrors, searching for sensors on fellow players’ vests to add points to the score.  The event was a success as new friends were made and old friendships renewed for the 2014-2015 school year.

Crusaders Volunteer at Regional Food Bank

Corn, OKLA – The Corn Bible Academy student body went to the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma on Wednesday, May 7, as volunteers to help process food for the needy people of Oklahoma. The Food Bank is located on the south side of Oklahoma City and processes donated food of all types to be shipped to local government agencies, churches, and other food distribution sites in over 50 of the 77 counties in Oklahoma. Oklahoma is number five on the list of the “hungriest” states in the United States and one in seven Oklahoman’s is undernourished. One group of the students spent their time packaging bulk dry cereal from 4 foot by 4 foot boxes on pallets into household size packages. The plastic bags were repackaged into 15 pound cardboard boxes for shipment. The boxes were then stacked on pallets and secured for shipping. The second group of students worked on assembly lines to package donated crackers, cereal, snacks, and dry boxed foods into 12-15 pound boxes to be sent to food pantries. Other students then stacked and labeled the entire pallet of and moved the finished product to a storage area. The service day was enjoyable for the student body and 7,053 pounds of food were processed. This represents the equivalent of 5,876 meals for the needy people of Oklahoma.
