Greenbrier Elementary School Students of the Month for February and March.
White House Heritage Middle School Future Business Leaders of America
The White House Heritage Middle School Future Business Leaders of America chapter brought home two first place plaques from state competition in their first-ever year of existence, with a third colleague registering a fourth-place finish to round out the day.
Kaydance Redwine placed first in the state in Community Service Middle Level for the group’s work with Yuda Bands and funding the education for a child in Zimbabwe, Africa. Redwine presented the information and facts about the community service project and was recognized on stage with the second and third place winners.
In a separate competition, Baylor Baucom placed first in the state in Middle Level Career Exploration. He was tasked with taking an objective test on all things relating to careers. A large focus of this test was on resumes, cover letters, interviews etc. He, too, was recognized on stage with the second and third place contestants.
Caleb Gregory, another WHHMS student took the same test as Bauco and tied in a three-way tie for 2nd place. Gregory lost the tiebreakers to the other two students, but deserves recognition for a great job at state FBLA competition and placing fourth at the state level.
Redwine and Baucom both will now advance to National FBLA Competition, to be held this summer in Baltimore, Maryland.

Springfield High School Assistant Principal Selected To Governor’s Leadership Academy
Springfield High School Assistant Principal Larry Staggs has been selected as the first ever enrollee from Robertson County to the Governor’s Academy for School Leadership.
The program is a one-year fellowship program for assistant principals that is intended to increase their leadership capacity. In partnership with Vanderbilt University, and local school districts, the state of Tennessee has set a goal of cultivating and developing future school leaders in order to improve overall school effectiveness and student performance.
Participants were nominated by their district’s director of schools and selected through an application and interview process conducted by representatives from the Governor’s Office, the Tennessee Department of Education (TDOE) and Vanderbilt University.
Each assistant principal is paired with an experienced principal who will mentor them throughout the year-long process. Staggs will work under the guidance of Dr. Katie Osborne, principal of Greenbrier High School. During the year, Staggs will also attend monthly group training sessions and a week-long summer institute at Vanderbilt. He has also begun the schedule of interning three days per month at GHS with Dr. Osborne. On completion of the academy, Staggs is expected to pursue placement as a school principal in the region or local district.
