Congratulations to Jaclyn Diaz, a Parkwood senior who was selected for the 2017 North Carolina Honors Chorus. She participated in a rigorous audition process, in which the top 20 singers in each voice part are selected from the entire state. Approximately 800-1000 students audition, and only 180 are selected. This was Jaclyn's second year auditioning, and she is only the second student in Parkwood history to qualify for Honors Chorus.
This school year, several classes at Parkwood Middle and High schools are piloting a web-based curriculum program that teaches mobile app development. History teacher Vinson Covington said his goal is for students to learn how to create an app so they'll enter college having background knowledge of computer programming.
