Bill Eswine Named Georgia Department of Natural Resources "Teacher of the Year"
Hornet faculty members Mr. Eswine, Dr. Kahn and Mrs. Lucas recently attended the Environmental Educators Alliance conference in Eatonton to talk about the DNR grant they received to create an educational bog on campus. The bog has been a dual effort between faculty and students and has been a way to showcase our campus biodiversity. The conference was also a celebration of Mr. Eswine, who was named as the Teacher of the Year by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources. Congratulations to Mr. Eswine and to our other fabulous faculty!

Students Earn Top Honors At State Language Contest
Spanish students recently participated in the FLAG (Foreign Language Association of Georgia) Middle & High School Spoken Language Contest. The annual event challenges students to demonstrate their ability to communicate clearly and effectively in a foreign language--students are interviewed individually in Spanish by FLAG judges and assessed on their spoken fluency, pronunciation, vocabulary, comprehension, level of discourse and grammatical accuracy. Once again, our Hornets impressed the judges! Seven out of the nine students earned the highest possible ranking--Superior--from the judges, with two earning the second-highest ranking--Excellent--from their judges.

Congratulations to Uyen-Vy Hoang, Shirley Ying, David Devaro, Kate Groce, Angel Patel, Harrison West, Sarah Glover, Claire Reitan and Leah Jackson.
