Coding Students Earn Rewarding Recognition

Livingston Academy's Computer Science Foundations class recently submitted a small coding project for the STEMscopes Coding Competition. Mrs. Lora Clouse hosted the virtual event using the national platform as a way to teach students other ways to utilize coding in real-life. The students created and coded a greeting card, which was then submitted and judged. Six student winners were announced May 3, 2021 and two of those students were from Livingston Academy. Senior Johnathan Moree and Freshman Dylan Watson both won a gift card worth $50.

Overton County Schools Recognizes Area Churches for Donations

Overton County Schools would like to recognize and thank area churches for their efforts and hard work in the hygiene initiative to supply school closets with bags of various supplies.

These items have been brought to OCSS due to a group effort between student services and several churches of Christ youth groups in the Upper Cumberland.

These bags provide items to homeless and low income students in our community including body wash, shampoo, conditioner, toothbrush, toothpaste and much more. These bags are available to them after school, weekends, and during school breaks.

Special thanks to the following churches for their donations:
Baxter Church of Christ, Central Sparta Church of Christ, Double Springs Church of Christ, Jefferson Avenue Church of Christ, Netherland Church of Christ, Smithville Church of Christ, Sycamore Church of Christ, Willow Avenue Church of Christ, and Allons Church of Christ.
