Howard Middle Student Playing Lead in 'The Nutcracker'

Howard Middle Student Playing Lead in 'The Nutcracker'

Twenty-three District students have been selected to participate in The Nutcracker of Middle Georgia Inc.'s annual production of "The Nutcracker," including an eighth grade Howard Middle School student who will play the lead role of Clara.

Jean Weaver, a Macon dance instructor, decided to create her own production of Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s "Nutcracker" ballet, and in the winter of 1985, the annual production by The Nutcracker of Middle Georgia Inc. was born. The first performance was at Wesleyan College in Porter Auditorium. Since 1986, The Nutcracker of Middle Georgia Inc. has performed at the Grand Opera House. Each year a select group of professional dancers join the Macon production, but the majority of the cast is made of an amateur ensemble.

Four students recognized for artwork in State School Bus Safety Poster Contest

Four students recognized for artwork in State School Bus Safety Poster Contest

Three elementary students and one middle school student received recognition for their entries to the State School Bus Safety Poster Contest, with one of them being named a state winner.

The theme for this year’s contest was “At My Stop You Stop,” which coincided with the state’s efforts to reduce the number of vehicles illegally passing buses in our communities. Four local winners were chosen from different grade-level divisions, and their entries were submitted to the state competition. The committee used a blind judging process so that no one would know the name or school attached to the entries.

The winners were:

·         Trevor Gottschalk, Springdale Elementary School

·         Rhys Howell, Carter Elementary School

·         Zemmie Mullis, Springdale Elementary School
