“Mask” has become somewhat of a buzzword in this strange year of 2020. Some cities and states have had mask mandates from the beginning while others never have. Some businesses, large and small, have refused to let patrons enter without a face covering while others have ignored the suggestions from the CDC and have allowed customers to come in as they are. Some schools are back in session — completely online, some are doing a hybrid model with parents choosing whether their children attend in person or online, and others are in person only — with masks mandated or not.
On Sept. 9, the Humphrey St. Francis juniors sat down to take the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) test. The ASVAB measures strengths, weaknesses, and potential for success. It also provides test takers with career information for military and civilian occupations. In prior years, members of the Nebraska National Guard administered the test to the Humphrey Public School and Humphrey St. Francis juniors at the same time, taking turns at one or the other school each year. This year, however, due to COVID-19 precautions, Guard members remained out of the schools, and the guidance counselors administered the tests separately to their respective juniors.
