        Northwestern head football coach, Jimmy Wallace, and his staff will hold the Little Trojan Football Camp June 23-27 for children ages 7-14. Camp hours will be from 8:30-12:30 and the cost, $80. To register, parents should contact the Northwestern Athletic Dept. at 981-1989.

<The Region 7 National History Day competition will be held on March 14 at Winthrop University. Hats off to district coordinator, Meredith Spradley, school coordinators Martha Warner (RHH) and Carolyn Moore (Saluda Trail), and the talented students who will represent our district.

< Congratulations to RHH percussion specialist, Michael Skellett, and the winter percussion ensembles on their first place award in the Scholastic Marching & Concert Open Competition last weekend.

<Tonya Finley and Chandra Payne, Saluda Trail science teachers, have a unique opportunity, compliments of NASA. They received some of the basil seeds that were used by engineers on the Endeavor Space Shuttle mission in the fall of 2007 to determine how plants react in microgravity conditions. Now, their students are growing the seeds to compare seed growth on Earth versus seed growth at the International Space Station.  

<The RHHS Band Booster Club will sponsor its Annual Golf tournament on June 10 at the Waterford Golf Club. The club is now looking for teams and sponsors to enjoy a great day of golf and to celebrate the beginning of the summer break.

<Congratulations to Ann Hood, Charlene Thornburg, and Lupe Harris, from the Central Child Development Center, who received a $250 grant from the "Champions of the Environment" competition sponsored by DHEC.

The three will use the money to continue a thriving gardening project at the center. 
<Congratulations to Mark Yost and the Northwestern Jazz Ensemble and Clinic Jazz Band on receiving all superior ratings from the six adjudicators at the state Jazz Festival on March 8 at Newberry College. This was the second time in the history of the festival that a school had two bands receiving all superiors in the same year.

<Hats off to the following schools for participating in the Junior Achievement Bowl-a-Thon fundraiser in February: Ebinport, Northside, Mount Gallant, and Lesslie. Ebinport's team of Mary Lou Pundt, Kim and Roger Brown, Stacy Bailey, Christine Beard, and Shane Goodwin raised the most money and won the Spirit Award. Laura Adkins, from team Northside, had the highest bowling score for the day.
