  • Mentoring is twice as nice for Scott Crabtree


    When Scott Crabtree first signed up to be a mentor, he thought he would be asked to help students with math or reading. It turned out to be more fun and rewarding. As a mentor to two fourth grade students at H.H. Beam Elementary, he has spent time playing bocce ball, making paper airplanes, and building a model car along with other activities. With two mentees, the experience is “twice as nice” for Crabtree.

  • Robots are more than toys in the classroom


    A holiday surprise arrived early for some fifth graders at Pleasant Ridge Elementary. The students in Rebecca Cissel’s classroom were hard at work one morning when they heard an electronic voice greet them from underneath the teacher’s desk: “Hello, Team Cissel!” It was a small, blue, ball-shaped robot named “Dot.” He arrived with a friend -- a larger robot, “Dash,” who has wheels and can be programmed to drive around the classroom floor. The students might think these are toys, but the robots are there to help them learn.

As an Early College student, Knowles is not only taking college courses, but at 18 years old, she has become the youngest-ever president of the Gaston College Student Government Association (SGA).
