Piedmont is pleased to welcome Pilar Jimenez to the World Languages Department as a Spanish teacher. Ms. Jimenez is from Spain and is a member of the Participate Program that allows educators from other countries to teach in the United States to achieve personal and professional growth while gaining international experience. Ms. Jimenez will be in the Participate Program for five years and is already adjusting to life in the Piedmont community.
Piedmont High School would like to thank Taylor Merrell, who completed several school beautification projects as part of Merrell's Eagle Scout endeavor. With the assistance of the Piedmont cross country team, the area around the courtyard was repined, bushes and trees were trimmed, and natural areas were weeded. In addition, the wood on the benches was replaced and painted to give an uplift to student seating around the courtyard.
Congratulations to Ethan Whitley, who was awarded Angler of the Year honors as a member of the Piedmont Fishing Club. Each month, club members participate in a fishing tournament where they weigh their five largest bass fish and earn points for each ounce. Whitley competed in all tournaments and received Angler of the Year honors with 473 points.
