  • UCPS Graduate Spotlight - Jacob Starnes

    Senior Jacob Starnes was recently featured on the UCPS website as a Senior Spotlight: Adopted from China at the age of seven, Piedmont High senior Jacob Starnes works hard at everything he does. While in high school he was a member of the BETA Club and National Honor Society. With a heart for community service, he volunteers at food banks and has become involved with raising funds for St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital after his sister Lily battled an illness. With a 4.28 GPA, Jacob still finds the time to hold down a job at a fast-food restaurant. Jacob is interested in pursuing a career in the medical field, as a radiologist or physician assistant. On his plans for the future: I plan to go to Appalachian State University and major in cellular biology. I also plan to participate in the Army ROTC at App State and join the military as an officer after graduating from college.

  • Savanna Beane is a UCVirtual Student of the Six Weeks

    UCVirtual is proud to announce that Savanna Beane is one of their #VirtuallyAwesome Students of the Six Weeks! In order to be a #VirtuallyAwesome Student of the Six Weeks, students have to be nominated by their teacher. Savanna is a Junior and is taking Earth and Environmental Science taught by Mrs. Donna Irvin. Mrs. Irvin had this to say about Savanna, “Savanna is excellent at advocating for her own education. She attends all class meetings, never shy to ask a question. When she emails with questions or the need for clarification she is always polite and thankful. When an issue arises, she lets me know immediately. She occasionally asks for me to open assignments early so she can be free for a weekend competition. With so many students struggling to manage virtual learning, she has mastered the all-important skill of effective communication.” Congratulations Savanna!

  • Homecoming 2021

    Piedmont held their Homecoming 2021 festivities on Friday, April 9th in Panther Stadium against Sun Valley. A big shout-out to the Panther football team for the victory over Sun Valley as Coach Mauro introduced the inaugural victory bell. Mauro wanted our football team to start the tradition of ringing the "Victory Bell" after a win, therefore, a bell was purchased and Senior Ty Nicholas painted it. A special thank you to Payton Baucom and Baucom Welding, Fab & Steel for spearheading and building the movable stand so the bell can be easily transported. Coach Mauro stated, "I am so happy for our Seniors that they got the opportunity to ring it on Friday night for Homecoming." As part of the festivities, the Homecoming court was introduced during half-time. Congratulations to Senior Emma Tomberlin, who was crowned Homecoming Queen, and Senior Laikyn Tyson, who was runner-up. In addition, Tripp Collins was crowned Homecoming King. Piedmont would like to thank all the Panther fans who came out to support Homecoming and our football team in their final game of the season.

  • Students Spread The Kindness Rock Project

    Mrs. Annette Harris' earth & environmental science classes, Transition to Adulthood (TTA), Occupational Course of Study (OCS), Student Government, and FFA have teamed up to spread the Kindness Rocks Project around the Piedmont campus and community. Students in honors earth/environmental science began by partnering with TTA students from Mrs. Blumer and Mrs. Cox's classes to paint kindness rocks. Then, students planted them in the Anna York Memorial Garden in front of the band room. The purpose of the rocks is to provide a pick-me-up to students and staff at any time they have a need. Therefore, if anyone needs a pick-me-up, just take a rock. but bring a rock back when you can to share some kindness yourself. As a continuation of the project, FFA painted rocks during National FFA Week. Student Government then spread the project in downtown Monroe. Likewise, OCS students, under the leadership of Ms. Sizemore and Ms. Starnes, painted rocks, and they were placed in Unionville. Many thanks to Ms. Tripp and Ms. Handsel for assisting Mrs. Harris' students as they made friends with the TTA students.
