Summer Reading Challenge

The Thomas County School System wants students to READ this summer!  Did you know that students can have up to a 2-3 month loss in reading ability over the summer?  It's important for students to spend time sharpening their reading skills!

Each school has developed a summer reading challenge for students.  We would like for students to read for 15-30 minutes everyday this summer.  The guidelines and requirements vary by school.  Please click the link below for more information about each school's guidelines.  If you need more information, please talk to the media specialist at each school.  The guidelines are for the school the students will be attending in the 2016-2017 school year.

Accent on Academics

  

 

 

Thomas County Central High School’s Advanced Placement Environmental Science class recently went on a trip to gain firsthand insight on ways the planet Earth functions. Teacher Laura Kornegay and her students visited several sites in Thomas County, including the Thomas County-Thomasville Municipal Solid Waste Landfill. Junior Logan Herring claimed she “never knew how interesting a landfill could actually be,” as students were surprised at just how much waste is produced. On the second phase of their trip, the students teamed up with representatives from Keep Thomas County Beautiful to plant two live oak seedlings which were grown from acorns from Thomasville’s famous “Big Oak.”  The final portion of the trip was to Thomas University’s Earth Day Fair. Palmer NeSmith says they all left the day of fun with motivation. “It’s simple,” she said. “Take every chance you can to admire the beauty of Thomas County and help it maintain its beauty.”

Wilhelm receives Wendy's High School Heisman recognition

Senior Conley Wilhelm was named as the Thomas County Central High School winner in the Wendy’s High School Heisman competition. Wilhelm, though not selected as a state finalist, is happy to have earned the recognition.

“I am happy to be named as our high school’s winner,” Wilhelm said. “It is something nice to put on a college application, and it was really nice to get recognition for being a student athlete.”

The Wendy’s High School Heisman, according to its official website, honors “the nation’s most esteemed high school seniors.” It is an award that honors excellence, dedication and achievement in learning and leadership in the classroom, on the field, and within the community.

“To apply, you had to have at least a 3.0 (GPA) and participate in a varsity sport,” Wilhelm explained. “I had to fill out an online application that involved questions about sports, education, and community service.”

Coach Bill Wilhelm, Conley’s father and a teacher/coach at TCCHS, is proud of his son’s accomplishments, both as a student and an athlete.

“Conley has been involved in five sports every year of his high school career,” Bill Wilhelm said. “To keep at least a 3.0 and to letter in five varsity sports is unbelievable.”

As a school winner, Conley will receive a certificate and a Wendy’s High School Heisman patch for his letterman jacket.

“We are always pleased when our students are successful both in and out of the classroom,” TCCHS Principal Trista Jones said. “Conley has certainly made the most of his years here at TCCHS, playing multiple sports and excelling academically. We are proud of his accomplishments.”
