A group of South Lenoir High School students put their heads together during this summer’s District C Teamship program to develop strategies the Kinston Police Department could use to bolster community relations and, in turn, boost recruiting efforts. The police department has already adopted four of the students’ ideas.
Three LCPS students representing FFA chapters at South Lenoir and North Lenoir high schools have won the right to compete at the national level after first-place finishes at the recent North Carolina FFA Convention in Raleigh. Taking their talents to the FFA National Convention in Indianapolis in November will be Rachel Noble of South Lenoir in Prepared Public Speaking competition, Hannabelle Heath of North Lenoir in both Veterinary Science and Ag Placement and, also from North Lenoir, Sydney Whichard in Nursery Operations.
Dr. Heather Lancaster, principal at Southwood Elementary for the past two years, is moving to Banks Elementary School. Wendy Piro, assistant principal at Woodington Middle since April 2020, is the new school leader at Southwood. Chamekka Williams, an assistant principal at North Lenoir High since 2021, is the new principal at Southeast Elementary School.
Whether it’s piloting a drone or building a robot or getting good a gardening, LCPS middle school and high school students can dive deep into what interests them at Career Accelerator, a series of one-week and two-week summer learning camps with 17 different opportunities for exploration.
