#useYOURvoice; is a campaign awareness started by three health science students at the GFRTC on a mission to educate, bring awareness and prevent suicide. Takiya Hunt (GHS), Tijona Freeman (NSHS), and Diamond Miller (GHS) created this campaign with assistance from their Health Science Instructor Angie Stone. They will be traveling to Charleston, SC in March to present the campaign before a panel of judges at the state HOSA(Health Occupations Students of America) convention. The young ladies hope to continue this campaign and make a difference in the lives of others. The goal is to go state wide and eventually world wide with this campaign. Please support them in their efforts by clicking on the link below to order a short/long sleeve T-shirt. Attached is a picture of the T-shirt and logo for their campaign. Thanks in advance for Helping Them Help YOU!

Four Greenwood 50 students passed the Oracle Certified Associate (OCA), Java Programmer exam in the fall of 2018. The OCA exam is designed for people with technical backgrounds who have been working in a professional capacity. It is an impressive accomplishment that these students passed the OCA exam without professional experience. Emerald High School is an Institutional Member of Oracle Academy. In addition to their coursework in Oracle Academy, the students participated in dual enrollment courses offered through Piedmont Technical College. They took Introduction to Java Programming (CPT 236) and Advanced Java Programming (CPT 237).
