I was the only one for GCHS that went. I had never met the people I performed with before I met them that day. I had never heard them sing or heard their voices. I didn’t even know their names.”

  • Gifted and talented students learn hands-on math

    Dry Ridge Elementary fifth grader Coleman Epperson found it difficult to build a tower out of the limited materials he was given.

    “We finally have something built. I know it’s pathetic, but to build a right tower I need wood, nails, a hammer and a blowtorch,” he said.

    Unfortunately for Coleman and his 10 other fellow Gifted and Talented students, all they had was tape, spaghetti noodles and small marshmallows to build their structure.
