  • INSPIRED. Dr. Johnnye Waller, NC Homeless Liaison of the Year

    For Dr. Johnnye Waller, being named North Carolina's Homeless Advocate of the Year by the state Department of Public Instruction isn't a reflection on her – instead, it's a reflection of the community she loves. “I am not in this by myself,” she said. “This is a recognition of the district's dedication and commitment to the issue of homelessness, and I am just the one that got named.”

  • INSPIRED. Food Truck Rodeo: SLHS Style

    If you were in Gwen Williams' food and nutrition class at Southern Lee High School last Friday, you could have been forgiven if you mistook the scene for a cooking show like Master Chef. Culinary offerings from a variety of cuisines? Check. “Celebrity” judges tasting the food and giving out notes to teams of student chefs? Check. It was all there, but it wasn't a cooking show. Instead, it was the culmination of a “food truck” assignment which the 20 10th, 11th and 12th graders in Williams' class had been working on for most of the school year.

  • INSPIRED. Dashawn Gilmore: Finding "Hope"

    Dashawn Gilmore may be a pretty quiet kid, but it's not because he doesn't have much to say. No, it would be a mistake to think that. Because while Gilmore – a sophomore at Southern Lee High School – isn't a real big talker, he expresses himself plenty through a variety of artistic pursuits. He creates pottery in his ceramics class. He's written songs and stories, he draws and he's active with his school's step team. Oh, and by the time this month is over, he'll be a twice-published poet.
