Leaving no stone unturned, Elizabethton High School students are ready to make their presence felt.
A brainchild of 23 students, community members gathered Monday to learn more about what the Bartleby Program has to offer during a ceremony held inside T.A.Dugger Junior High’s auditorium. The Bartleby Program was one of the 18 XQ Super School Projects to receive funding from XQ America to implement new ways on how to “rethink” the way of high school.
While receiving updates, representatives with Bartleby provided a viewing of a national broadcast given by XQ America over the weekend that highlighted the different ways the Super Schools are changing the way high school is thought of in the country.
Providing purpose and answers was the premise for Monday’s event, according to EHS teacher and one of the Bartleby founders Alex Campbell.
“We do have a lot of specific answers for how we’re doing this in Elizabethton, and that’s what tonight is all about,” Campbell told the Elizabethton Star before the start of the event. “We get a chance to tell the people of Elizabethton exactly what we’re going to do with our vision.”
