Scotland Singers receive 'Excellent' rating at competition

One of Scotland High School's choral groups, The Scotland Singers led by director Angela Leflore, recently participated in the annual 'Large Choral Music Performance' competition at Wingate University.  The Scotland Singers performed two selections that were judged by three choral directors on a variety of criteria including, Tone/Vocal Production, Intonation, Diction, Technique, and Interpretation. At the conclusion of the competition, choirs are awarded one of the following ratings: Poor, Below Average, Average, Excellent, and Superior. The Scotland Singers proudly received a rating of 'Excellent'! 

To see the award winning choir live, you can attend their spring concert, 'A Night at the Movies' which will be held in the auditorium at Scotland High School this Thursday, March 26 at 7:00 pm.  Admission is only $1.00.  Selections from movies like Shrek, Sister Act II, and The Hobbit will be featured. 
 
SEarCH super senior wins oratorical contest
 
Scotland Early College High School's super senior, Octavia McLean, was this year's winner of the Laurinburg Optimist Club's annual oratorical contest.  The topic was 'How Will My Optimism Help Me Press On To Greater Achievements In The Future'.  Miss McLean's impassioned speech urged listeners to have the courage to persevere even when you think you can't go on.  In her delivery, she shared that in 2012 she had an extended hospital stay that resulted in her absence from school for almost 6 months.  Through that experience, she learned that by maintaining an optimistic attitude, you can get through even the toughest situation.  Octavia will go on to compete at the zone competition next month.  Congratulations and good luck!



 
NC public schools celebrates 175 years

A celebration of 175 years of public education in North Carolina was the centerpiece of last week’s North Carolina Association of School Administrators Conference on Educational Leadership in Raleigh.   Marked by keynote addresses from Governor Pat McCrory and State Superintendent Dr. June Atkinson, the celebration kicked off the ‘Every Child’s Chance…Every Community’s Future’ initiative.  The concerted effort to connect school leaders with business leaders, government officials, parents, and community groups to spread the message that North Carolina public schools are thriving - and that building increased respect and support for public schools is imperative for the ongoing viability of those schools and for the state as a whole will be an ongoing effort throughout the state in 2015.  To read more about the ‘Every Child’s Chance…Every Community’s Future’ program and see how you can be involved, visit the website at www.everychildschancenc.org.
