Reading Shakespeare in class can come across as boring to most students, but on Saturday night, October 13th, select Piedmont High School students visited downtown Charlotte to see [They Fight], a rollicking selection of fight scenes from eight different Shakespeare plays at the Duke Energy Theater. The students engaged with the actors as they sat on the front row, almost in the middle of the action. As the play switched back and forth from comedy to drama, they saw how the audience would interact with the actors, just as they would have in Shakespeare’s time.
Students from the Piedmont High School Air Force Junior ROTC unit successfully completed the Piedmont Challenge Summer Leadership Camp in Lenoir, NC. The camp included five days of leadership exercises, drill, archery, orienteering, water safety, and athletics. The students hosted the event attended by eight other schools from North Carolina and Virginia. ROTC students coordinated the schedule of activities, developed a chain of command, selected their leaders from attending schools, split the cadets into flights, and then conducted the camp.
The Carolina Panthers and Gatorade teamed up to sponsor the Carolina Panthers High School Meal Grant program that provided eight (8) $1000 meal grants to local high schools.
