  • ACHS Agriculture Department Receives Multiple Grant Awards

    Alexander Central High School Teacher Scottie Cook was awarded a $5,000 grant from the Tobacco Trust Fund Commission to purchase a portable band saw to all students the opportunity to learn about milling lumber. There is a great need to offer Agriscience Applications, Agricultural Mechanics I and II, and Natural Resources I and II. These classes provide the opportunity to learn about milling lumber. The purchase of a band saw allows students to see how lumber is milled from the tree to the finished board. Mr. Cook was unable to attend the school board meeting. Tyler Mitchell accepted the certificate on his behalf. Alexander Central High School Teacher JD Sink was awarded grants from Carolina Farm Credit and Tractor Supply Company. The Carolina Farm Credit Mission Fund awarded $5,000 to be used specifically for the ACHS Agriculture/FFA Livestock Learning Lab. The lab will be located just below the gardens at ACHS. It will include a Livestock barn that will periodically house farm animals for educational purposes and experiments. This will provide students with hands-on experiences to help them make decisions on their farms or in their places of employment. The Tractor Supply Company awarded $1,108 to help fund the Livestock Learning Lab.

  • Ten Recognized for National Board Certification

    Alexander County School Board members and administration recognized ten certified staff members who completed National Board Certification during the February school board meeting. Five staff members from three of Alexander County Schools obtained certification for the first time. They include Payton Boyles (ACHS), Amanda Marshall (ACHS), Travis Crowder (EAMS), Toni Smith (EAMS), and Ashley Huss (WAMS). Five staff members were also honored that have renewed their national certification. They include Tara Geiger (TES), Angela Hickerson (ACHS), Cristi Julsrud (EAMS), Brian Lewis (ACHS), and Elisabeth Turner (ACHS). North Carolina continues to lead the nation in the number of teachers that have earned certification from the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards. The certification is rigorous performance-based assessment that typically takes from one to three years to complete and measures what accomplished teachers and counselors should know and be able to do. Teachers in North Carolina that achieve certification receive a 12 percent salary supplement to their regular pay that is good for the 10-year life of the certification. They also are awarded eight continuing education credits (CEUs).
