Two middle school students win state awards in school bus safety contest

Two Rowan County students claimed second- and third-place awards in the state for their posters promoting bus safety in the National School Bus Safety Contest.
Mariana Camacho, 12, a seventh-grader at North Rowan Middle School, placed second in the state, and Lucas Safrit, 13, an eighth-grader at Southeast Middle School, placed third. Both received plaques featuring a small version of their posters at the Sept. 28 Rowan-Salisbury Board of Education meeting. The theme of the contest was “Cross In View is the Right Thing to Do.”
North Middle Principal Alexis Cowan presented Camacho her plaque at the Sept. 28 meeting of the Board of Education.
Former North Middle Principal Darrell McDowell also presented the plaque to Camacho on the school’s Television Network. Camacho is in Deborah Alexander’s art class.
Southeast Principal Skip Kraft gave Safrit the plaque on the school’s morning news program and again at the school board meeting. Safrit is in Shannon Blackmon’s art class.
