100 People: A World Portrait

​Thank you, Dr. Harris, for this powerful information from

The world population has now reached 7 billion people. This milestone inspired us to conduct research to update our statistics, and the changes over the past 5 years are remarkable. In 2006, only 1 person out of 100 would have had a college education-- today that number has jumped to 7 thanks in part to advances in higher education in Asia. The detailed research and source information can be found here and the statistics provided by Donella Meadows in 1990 that originally inspired our project can be viewed here

If the World were 100 PEOPLE:
50 would be female
50 would be male 

26 would be children
There would be 74 adults,
8 of whom would be 65 and older

There would be:
60 Asians
15 Africans
14 people from the Americas
11 Europeans

33 Christians
22 Muslims
14 Hindus
7 Buddhists
12 people who practice other religions
12 people who would not be aligned with a religion

12 would speak Chinese
5 would speak Spanish
5 would speak English
3 would speak Arabic
3 would speak Hindi
3 would speak Bengali
3 would speak Portuguese
2 would speak Russian
2 would speak Japanese
62 would speak other languages

83 would be able to read and write; 17 would not 

7 would have a college degree
22 would own or share a computer

77 people would have a place to shelter them
from the wind and the rain, but 23 would not 

1 would be dying of starvation
15 would be undernourished
21 would be overweight 

87 would have access to safe drinking water
13 people would have no clean, safe water to drink

Ten EHS students traveled to the University of Missouri Rolla (S & T) and competed in the state-wide HOSA (Health Occupation Students of America) competition.  They took written tests and competed in hands-on performance exams in front of a panel of judges.  They have been working extremely hard for the past few months before and after school.   

These students have the honor of being invited to the NATIONAL COMPETITION over the summer in Anaheim California to compete against all of the top place finishers in states across America.

#OneEureka Mural Dedication

In January, students came together to mimic the art projects happening in Ferguson after the destruction.  

On Wednesday, March 25th, a plaque was dedicated to the students who created the piece of art that now hangs in our commons. 

The sense of community and the presence of love in this simple act humbles me.

Mural Project #OneEureka

Two of our art teachers, Erin Miller and Kristina Davis, organized a mural project that mimics the painting on plywood in the destroyed business in St. Louis.  

Students designed and painted a mural that depicted their view of the world as it should be.  

Pretty amazing stuff...

#OneEureka--Take a Cue from Our Students

This morning, from 8:16-9:05, an amazing event took place at EHS.  ​To see what it was, visit Ms. Asher's blog.

Even after 21 years as a teacher, I am still humbled and awestruck by the power of a teenager'​s voice.
