Piedmont High School Gets New Classroom
Piedmont High School holds a ribbon-cutting for their Health Science Department. More than 100 students are being prepared for the medical field at the school, and today they officially opened the doors to a classroom equipped with a dental suite, simulator, and mannequin. Health Science teacher Nicole Tolbert says the students love being trained to serve their community. The funding for the program and the new room came from a grant last year. And, Eleventh Grade student Cameron Pickens and Twelfth Grade student Chasity Tucker say they’ve been waiting since the announcement of the program to be Certified Nursing Assistants. Students will test for C-N-A accreditation in May.
