LCS had a hat trick in the world of art this month, winning three statewide awards from the North Carolina Art Education Association (NCAEA). Jody Stouffer, an art teacher at Lee County High School, and Judy McDonald, an art teacher at Greenwood Elementary, have been named secondary art educator of the year and elementary art educator of the year, respectively, by the NCAEA. Alongside them, Dr. Andy Bryan, the district's superintendent, was named a NCAEA “friend of the arts.”
Great teachers, it should come as no surprise, love teaching. That's true regardless of who they're teaching. So when Dee O'Neal moved to West Lee Middle School after a combined 13 years of teaching fourth and fifth grade science at Greenwood Elementary and Ingram Elementary, the fact that she'd be instructing teachers instead of children didn't make much difference.
Add “engineering” to the list of things Southern Lee High School can be known for. The school is home to the fledgling Academy of Engineering (AOE) in its first year. With Lee County High School hosting an Academy of Finance and Southern Lee also being home to an Academy of Hospitality and Tourism (now in its second year ), Lee County Schools is fully embracing the academy concept, which guides cohorts of high school students through classes specializing in various career paths.
