  • Walker Uses Bright Ideas Grant to Study DNA

    Each year, North Carolina’s Electric Cooperatives sponsor a grant program titled “Bright Ideas”. Teachers from all over North Carolina can compete in the grant application process to fund various projects in their classroom. This year, Piedmont’s own Beth Walker was awarded a grant in the amount $1975 for her project titled, “Exploring the Language of Life”. With the funds from the award, Mrs. Walker was able to purchase five BlueGel electrophoresis chambers and eight micropipettes, allowing students to load and visualize DNA, creating a DNA fingerprint for analysis. Last week, students in her AP Biology class visualized DNA fingerprints, where they determined the inheritance of a genetically transmitted disease, sickle-cell anemia, in a family. Students were able to use high-tech equipment and replicate the same work performed in labs across the country.

  • Honoring Counselors During National School Counseling Week

    National School Counseling Week is February 1-5 so let's get to know our awesome counselors who serve Piedmont's students and staff. Joanna Ellis is the 11th-grade counselor, who joined the Piedmont counseling staff in 2012. She enjoys helping students achieve their goals, graduate from high school, and figure out where or if they want to go to college. Stacey Butera is the 10th-grade counselor, and her favorite part of serving as a school counselor is getting to know students and helping them on their journey as they figure out what their goals are for their future. Erica Henderson is the 9th-grade counselor, and has worked as a school psychologist and now a school counselor within Union County Public Schools for more than 15 years. Her favorite part of school counseling is working directly with students to support them in overcoming challenges and reaching their goals. Sarah Mitchell is the 12th-grade counselor and became a school counselor because she was inspired by her high school counselor. Mitchell's favorite part about school counseling is being able to work one-on-one with students regarding their academic and career paths, as well as assist with their emotional needs. Alice Collins serves in the administrative support capacity for our school counseling program. The best part of her role in the school counseling program is the teamwork that occurs daily to make sure all students have the best environment in which to grow and learn so that they can be successful in life.

  • Leo Club Serving Community During Holidays

    The Piedmont Leo Club was busy serving in the local community during the holiday season. Members rallied within the community beginning with a joint effort with the Unionville Lions Club at their annual Turkey Shoot. Piedmont's Leo Club members helped set up the venue and maintained fresh targets throughout the annual event that raised funds to benefit the Unionville community. With the funds raised from the Turkey Shoot, the Leos assisted the Unionville Lions Club with adopting Christmas angels at New Salem Elementary School by participating in a Christmas shopping spree to provide a special Christmas morning for all. The Piedmont Leos also independently provided a special Christmas for our own high school Piedmont families.
