  • Logan Nichols announced as candidate for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's 2020 Student of the Year.

    Parkwood Junior, Logan Nichols, has been accepted as a candidate in the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's 2020 Students of the Year campaign. Students are nominated based on leadership, passion to find a cure for blood cancers and involvement in the community. Candidates then participate in a national seven-week challenge to raise funds and awareness for the fight against blood cancers. This year's campaign begins on January 26, 2020, and culminates on March 13, 2020 with a celebration in Charlotte. Last year alone, there were more than 5,000 high school students participating throughout the country and this year we are excited to have Logan represent Parkwood High! She is running in honor of Will Henely and River Peedin, both local cancer survivors. To get involved or learn more about the campaign, please visit www.StudentsoftheYear.org.

    Representatives from Turning Point visited Parkwood last week. Turning Point offers a myriad of services to the community. It exists to end domestic abuse, sexual assault, and child abuse through safe shelter, advocacy, prevention, and social change.

  • Parkwood/Cuthbertson JROTC Wins Big at Drill Meet

    On Saturday, November 9th, Parkwood/Cuthbertson, Monroe/CATA, and Piedmont/Porter Ridge AFJROTC units competed in the annual Union County AFJROTC Drill Meet. Parkwood/Cuthbertson crushed its opponents by sweeping all five of five events and winning first place overall. Later that morning cadets participated in, and observed a special Veterans Day program planned by the Union County Veterans Services Office at the Charlotte Monroe Executive Airport. At the end, a top cadet from each of the six Union County JROTC units received the Union County Board of Commissioners’ Patriot Award. Our unit’s recipient this year was Avery Batts! The grand finale for the day was the Warbirds over Monroe Air Show, which lasted all afternoon. The air show concluded with a giant “wall of fire” under passing warbirds, which simulated bombs but was actually pyrotechnic devices safely rigged across the runway from spectators.  You could feel the heat from hundreds of yards away! The field trip lasted nine hours and was an amazing day of drill competition, honoring our veterans, and fun!
