Calhoun Runner Grace Moore Finishes Fourth in Nation

On June 18-19, two relay teams from Calhoun High School and runner Grace Moore traveled to Greensboro, North Carolina to compete in the New Balance National Track and Field Championships.

Moore ran the Steeplechase and finished fourth in the country making her an All-American. The other two relays, the 800 Sprint Medley Relay and the 1600-meter medley, resulted in personal records for the girls.

“It was a great experience and the Calhoun girls hope to return next year,” said Principal Nicole Hollings.

Mastering the Principles of 2-D and 3-D Art at Calhoun

Students enrolled in the Prep for Life special education program at Calhoun High School displayed their mastery of 2-D and 3-D art during an art show for an appreciative board of education and administration. 

For the past two years, the students have worked with teachers Nancy Scott (Art I) and Heather Lohr (Art II) on developing a portfolio of works including animal portraits, impressionist landscapes, free form sculpture, opposite op art, past to present pop art and relief sculptures. These finished products were not only displayed on hand, but were presented in the form of a digital portfolio.

“The students transitioned so well from 2-D to 3-D art and digital work and will now have digital portfolios to take with them,” Lohr said. “None of this could happen, however, without the support of the district and the students’ families.”
