For four teachers at Southern Lee, it's almost as if high school never ended. Jordan Carter, Nathan Cochrane, Addison Johnson (class of '08), and Tirrell McIver (class of '09) all came back to teach at Southern Lee High School a few years after graduating. None of them really expected to end up here, but they all said the homecoming has been a welcome one.
Lee County High School's Quiz Bowl team does a lot of things to get ready for its various competitions throughout the year – the club gets together every other week to play trivia games together and have mock competitions, that sort of thing – but ask 18-year-old senior Gregory Lewis the best way to excel, and his answer is simple. “I find the best way to practice for Quiz Bowl is to just be curious,” said Lewis, who has been on the school's Quiz Bowl team for all four of his high school years. That curiosity paid off last weekend when the team won the Lee County Library's annual Quiz Bowl competition.
When Lee County Senior Storm Whitehead and Southern Lee Senior Saul Vivas-Rivera, each 17, signed up for the Caterpillar Manufacturing Engineering (CAT-ME) program during their junior year, they knew it would mean long hours – between classes and work, it's 48 per week, and that's just the first year of a six or seven year program – but they did it anyway.
Design, music, food – art in its many forms came together recently at a fashion show at Broadway Elementary. The show took place January 7, and featured students modeling their own designs, along with music from the East Lee Middle School band and food provided by Lee County High School's culinary arts program – a multi-school, multi-grade level and multi-media collaboration that's a source of pride for all involved.
