Best Place to Raise a Family?

For the second consecutive year, Rock Hill has been selected by BusinessWeek magazine as one of the best places in the U.S. to raise a family. One city from each state was selected based on school performance, household expenditures, crime rate, air quality, job growth, family income, diversity, museums/parks/theaters, and other amenities. The magazine states to readers: "If it's all about schools for you, Rock Hill, S.C., also took its second win." BusinessWeek touted that our public schools are among the best in the state, and "it can't hurt that the city is home to Winthrop University, which was ranked as one of the best public universities in the Southeast in 2006."

Adviser Cathy Griffin and Northwestern's Model UN teams (Russia and China) won top awards recently at the regional Model UN competition at Clemson University.

Lynn Fulton-Archer, world language specialist at Richmond Drive, has been elected to the board of the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL).

Beverly Laney, choral director at SPHS, had 17 students audition for the S.C. All-State Chorus and 13 (or 59% of her chorus) made it.

Jonathan Hall, choral director at RHHS, had 10 students accepted in the S.C. All-State Chorus. Six students made the honors choir, and two made a perfect score on sight reading.

The NHS Choral Department, directed by Eugene Bumgardner, will present its Annual Christmas Concert on Dec. 2, 3, and 4. Along with the Troubadours, Singers, Trouveres, and Encore, the Rawlinson Road chorus will be featured on Dec. 2, while the choruses from Sullivan and Dutchman Creek will perform on Dec. 3. The Dec. 4 performance will feature all four choruses. Admission will be $5/adults and $3/students.
