Junior competition for Faith Idol rescheduled for Tuesday night

Due to storms on Friday night, the junior competition for Faith Idol has been rescheduled for Tuesday, July 2, at 8:30 p.m.
The adult competition will be Monday at 8:30 p.m. and the finals will be on July 4.

As of Saturday, Don Martin is officially retired from Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools — the organization he led for the last 19 years, according to the Winston-Salem Journal.
In August, Martin will join the staff of High Point University’s doctoral program in educational leadership. The new program will train participants to become future superintendents, allowing Martin, 61, to pass on all that he’s learned over the past three decades as a superintendent. He led the Rowan-Salisbury School System before taking over in Winston-Salem.
New superintendent Beverly Emory will take the reins Monday.
She will make $190,000 a year, compared with the $224,712 Martin made in his last year.

Democratic Women of Rowan County will meet Monday, July 1, at 7 p.m. at the EastSquare Art Works, 120 East Innes St., Salisbury.  Topic will be Connections:  Community Action and Technology.  Meetings of the Democratic Women are open to all interested people.  Meetings are held the first Monday of each month.
