Christine Nelson, WBTV News Anchor Shares "Growing Up" Strategies with The Lady Redhawk Club
Students in the MMS Lady Redhawk Leadership Academy had the opportunity to meet with Charlotte’s New Anchor, Mrs. Christine Nelson, of WBTV Channel 3. Mrs. Nelson broke the ice of a very quiet and almost slumber group by engaging the girls in a trivia game about government and current events. Students were encouraged to speak freely and ask what was on their minds. As the students became more involved in the activity and the overall conversation, she easily transitioned the topic and spoke with the 7th grade girls about the importance of knowing who YOU are and being who YOU want to be.
Ice and snow could not stop the talent at Monroe Middle School’s Variety show. Originally planned for the day before Valentine’s day, the show was rescheduled to February 20th. The theme was "Love: Love Won, Love Lost and the Love of Friends Remembered, Always." Feature numbers included “Mambo Italiano” by the chorus, “Beautiful,” sung by Neona Chambers and “I Will Always Love You” by McKaylah Blakeney. “Tu Solo Tu” and “Tatoo Hearts” were featured songs by Latin artists. The dance duet was choreographed by Dani Riquelme and Victor Peralto. There was a wonderful turnout of students, parents and community! The variety show was sponsored by the Graduation Committee under the direction of Ms Marie Graham. All show proceeds benefit promotion activities for the 8th grade class.Full Story
