Georgia Tech dean’s list

Nathan Miller of Salisbury made the dean’s list for spring semester at the Georgia Institute of Technology. This designation is awarded to undergraduate students who have a 3.0 or higher academic average for the semester.
CHARLOTTE — The Community Blood Center of the Carolinas recently announced the 10 regional high schools that have been chosen for the $1,000 CBCC grant for the 2012-2013 school year.
This year’s winners are Jesse Carson High School, East Rutherford High, Southern Alamance, Phillip O’Berry, Crest High, Cutherbertson High, Floyd D. Johnson Tech, West Wilkes, Newton Conover and East Mecklenburg High.
The CBCC knows how important it is to educate and recognize its young donors while giving back to the local school systems. By hosting blood drives with CBCC, high school students gain recognition for their service and learn how blood impacts patients in the community.
Each time a school sponsors a blood drive with CBCC, the school’s name is entered into a drawing to win one of ten $1,000 grants. High school partners that host a minimum of two blood drives, collecting at least 100 units within one school year will also receive a $500 scholarship to award to a student of their choice. Schools may nominate any senior for the program and the award will be distributed directly to the college or university of the selected student. Since 2009, CBCC has awarded more than $98,500 in scholarships and grants.
The CBCC depends on high schools for almost 25 percent of its local blood supply. To host a drive at your high school, please contact Kim Jones at 704-972-4727 or email sponsorinfo@cbcc. For more information on hosting a blood drive or donating blood in your area, visit http://www.cbcc.us or call 704-972-4700.
The educational challenge of the 21st century has motivated Rockwell Christian School, a ministry of Bethel Baptist Church, to uphold their standard of excellence that has earned Quality Status.
Using the individualized Bible-based curriculum of Accelerated Christian Education (A.C.E.), this school focuses on Christian character training and outstanding academic accomplishments by its students, and also demonstrated a continuing commitment to state-of-the-art, computer-enhanced education.
This year, the average students’ grade in all subject areas was 92 percent. Many students completed more than one year’s standard academic expectation.
Rockwell Christian School believes that school achievement is attributed in part to community commitment to maintain an atmosphere where a school can effectively educate our youth today for tomorrow’s achievements.
