Summer break for high school students is only about ten weeks long, but two rising seniors from Lee County will be spending six of those weeks this year at the Governor's School of North Carolina. Lynn Nguyen, a rising senior at SLHS, and Alana Edwards, a rising senior at LCHS, have both been accepted to the Governor's School, a residential summer education program for gifted high school students across North Carolina. Both will attend the Governor's School West campus in Winston-Salem.
At SLHS, Vickie Wilkins is teaching students how to be teachers. Wilkins' 13 teacher cadets – 12 seniors and one junior – are students in her Teacher Cadet 2 elective course. They've spent the current semester in classrooms at middle, elementary and even pre-K schools across the district, learning first-hand what it takes to run a classroom. In Lee County, the Teacher Cadet elective is offered at Southern Lee and is based on a successful program implemented throughout the Carolinas.
