Local middle and high school students and their families are invited to learn about opportunities that await them beyond graduation during the fourth annual College and Career Expo. The event is Saturday, March 7 from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. at Eastridge Mall in Gastonia.
Students at the Gaston Early College High School have already given 1,582 hours of service to the community this school year. Now, they can add something else to that total: 86 inches of hair. At the school’s first-ever “Cuts for Kindness” event, two teachers and eight students donated more than seven feet of hair to be made into wigs for cancer patients.
The Board of Education has approved a series of recommendations related to plans for new schools in Gaston County. The recommendations include building a new elementary school in west Gastonia and a new middle school in Stanley; establishing a new elementary school magnet program at Hawks Nest Intermediate School; and appointing a task force to study options for a new Career and Technical Education (CTE) high school.
