Tattnall County High School FCCLA members were honored with numerous awards at the National competition in Orlando. Destiny Levant, a TCHS honor graduate, earned the top score in the nation in her division, which included a $1,000 scholarship! Additionally at the Board of Education meeting, Teacher of the Year Robin Kirkland gave an overview of an award she won, a $750 grant, the “Gale Samuels Award” bestowed on one Teacher of the Year in the state of Georgia.

Also on the front page, over $20,000 and a supply of cocaine was confiscated in Tattnall County after a traffic stop. The TCHS Sound of Pride is under the direction of Ben Helms this year and the band and color guard have been hard at work on the halftime show for the upcoming football games. The City of Reidsville has a new welcome sign at the city’s entrances. And finally, the Primary Election is next Tuesday, July 31. We have a sample ballot printed in this week’s paper, along with a question and answer article with Tattnall’s local candidates. You can also view the sample ballot by clicking on the following links. Remember that the sample is for the entire county (listing all the candidates) and only your local district candidates will appear on your voting ballot next Tuesday after you decide to vote Democrat or Republican.
