SSHS teacher, Bill Sorenson, Bright Ideas Grant Recipient

posted Nov 22, 2016, 5:10 AM by SCS Webmaster

Bill Sorenson, South Stanly High School Electronics teacher, was recently chosen as a recipient of one of the 2016 Bright Ideas Grants provided by Pee Dee Electric. For more than 20 years, North Carolina’s electric cooperatives have offered Bright Ideas education grants to teachers in K-12 classrooms, giving teachers the means to put their creative teaching ideas into action.

Sorenson will use the Bright Ideas Grant to fund a robotics project at South Stanly. In the project, Sorenson’s high school students will learn how to program and operate small humanoid robots. These high school students will later have the opportunity to demonstrate their programming skills and gain public speaking practice through a presentation of their humanoid robots to elementary classes. Students will have robots perform various tasks, including: performing push-ups,
doing yoga poses, dancing, playing soccer and even reading a story. Sorenson is excited about the “bots’” potential. He explained, “We really have a ton of flexibility, as we can p
rogram them to say and sing about anything. We can also program them to do specific moves.” Sorenson hopes that the elementary presentations spark the younger students’ interests and inspires them to take the middle school STEMS program and the electronics programs available at South Stanly.

Welcome to the new school year! A message from the Superintendent

posted Aug 23, 2016, 1:16 PM by SCS Webmaster

Public education in Stanly County is alive and it is doing well. There is a mindset amongst some that public education is struggling and is faltering in this nation, and that is simply not true in Stanly County. There is a saying that perception is reality, but that is not the case here. It is our goal this year to work hard to spread the facts and let our community see that public education is not faltering or struggling in Stanly County. We have come a long way, but no matter where we are there will always be work to do and improvements to make.

Years ago, Jim Valvano gave a very stirring speech. In that speech he posed a question: How do we go from where we are now to where we want to be? He then answered the question by saying it takes three things:

  1. We must have an enthusiasm for life. There is nothing more exciting and full of enthusiasm than the students on the first day of school. The students bring an energy that is like no other. We as parents and staff must take that same enthusiasm, match it plus one, and continue it every day and all day long. 

  2. We must have dreams and goals. We have over 8,500 students that walk through our front doors on a daily basis, eyes wide open, and the world ahead of them. Dreams and goals are not something we are short of.

  3. And finally, We must be willing to work for it. I grew up in Stanly County, I know the work ethic that exists here. We are a blue-collared community that was founded and continues to exist based on a strong work ethic. We know how to roll up our sleeves and work hard when there is a job to do.

So, we must take our strong work ethic, combine an enthusiasm for life, and we will thus put ourselves in a position to ensure that every student reaches their dreams and goals. 

Welcome to the new school year,

Bill Josey
