High School Students Save Thousands of Dollars

High School Students Save Thousands of DollarsAre you a student or parent who is concerned about the rising costs of higher education?  Norfolk Public Schools and Tidewater Community College have a wonderful program designed to help.  It’s called the Middle College High School Program.  High school juniors and seniors leave their home schools and enroll at TCC’s Norfolk campus.  There, they finish their core, high school classes. The students also take transferable college courses taught by college professors.  This will save a student up to two years in college tuition costs and time.

Anticipation loomed in the air. A silence fell over the once roaring crowd and spectators crossed fingers, held their breath, and awaited the final call.

Only one of 16 finalists would be given the Virginia Sports Hall of Fame Student Athlete Achievement Award. Only one from the hundreds of applicants from across Virginia.

And bringing true girl power to the final sweet sixteen was not one but two, Norfolk Public Schools young ladies. Norview Middle School 7th grader Shontel Linnette (right) and Maury High School senior Anna Lewis (left), were the only NPS students to make it to the final sixteen. While neither won the big prize, both girls were well deserved in the attention they garnered as outstanding Virginia athletes.

This month, Payless Shoesource District Manager Dennis Morhiser visited James Monroe Elementary School with a special gift in hand. He wasn’t dressed like Santa, but students and staff at Monroe said he couldn’t have been any jollier.

Ingleside Students Vie for a Chance to Attend the Inauguration

Reno Nieves may only be in the third grade, but he understands the significance of history being written. He recently sat in his all-boy class at Ingleside Elementary School, concentration furrowing into his eyebrows and his pencil gliding across wide-ruled paper.

“I want to see President elect Barack Obama become the first African American President,” Nieves wrote in his still child-like handwriting. His fellow classmates too hope to attend the inauguration in January, to watch history in the making.

Cynthia Walters challenged all 17 of her students to write a letter to Earl Stafford, the founder of Virginia-based Universal Systems and Technology. She told her students of Stafford’s pledge to offer hotel rooms at Washington D.C.’s JW Marriott Hotel free of charge to disadvantaged people across the country so they can attend President-elect Barack Obama's Jan. 20 celebration.
