Education Roundup: Arts Alive at Carson

Published 12:00 am Thursday, February 2, 2023

CHINA GROVE — Arts department students from Jesse C. Carson High School demonstrated their passion for their studies in middle schools around Rowan County.  

On Friday, those students performed at Corriher-Lipe Middle School, Southeast Middle School, Sacred Heart Catholic School, and China Grove Middle School. The purpose of this presentation was to encourage students to get involved in the arts programs offered at various high schools in the county.

Because Carson High offers an Academy of The Arts, students were able to see all five disciplines represented during the 30 minute show. Several pieces of student-made art work were also displayed. The Rowan-Salisbury Schools community understands that arts education matters and fortunately for Rowan County, the Arts are very much alive.
