At our Young Citizenship Assembly on January 10, 2013, sponsored by the Hillsborough Exchange Club, our student leaders and Ms. Byerly were recognized for their good character.
After presenting students with their certificates, Ms. Betty Ann Byerly was presented with a plaque by the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) for her District Teacher of the Year Award. She is one of 16 top teachers in the state competing for their NC Teacher of the Year Award. Four students honored her by reading essays about how Ms. Byerly has impacted their lives.

Operation Playground was our "campaign" to win the Pepsi Refresh Grant
