Principal David Maynard has announced these position changes at Nottingham:
- Jolene Todd has been promoted to principal of the Middle School Alternative Program. Ms Todd is well deserving of the promotion, and we are very happy for her. Interviews will be taking place this week to fill her position. We will let you know when that process has been completed.
- Alton Hicks has been named full-time Athletic Director at Nottingham. Mr. Hicks was previously Athletic Director for both Corcoran and Fowler. Mr. Hicks is a graduate of Nottingham, and we are happy to welcome him home. Mr. Spicer, who was split between Nottingham and Henninger, is now full time at Henninger.
This past week the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) program took students to the National Convention in Boston, MA to compete in seven different competitions (First Lego League, High and Middle School Math, Kidwind Wind Tunnel, TEN80 Race Car Challenge, Science Fair, Vex Robotics). There were over 11, 000 attendees at the conference and over 2,000 PCI students (Grades 3-12).
SCSD students took first place in the Kidwind Wind Tunnel competition; team members are Jaleel Berry and Jevon Jones from Nottingham and Tyriek Mayo and Nazir Muhammed from ITC. SCSD students placed third in the High School Math Lower Division; team members are Myles Cherebin from Nottingham, Chantay Morales from PSLA, Alex Phan from ITC, and Andru Skinkle and Imari Gary, P-Tech.
The Kidwind team, because of its win on that platform, has been selected to compete at the National/International Competition in New Orleans, LA, May 21st-25th. Congratulations!
