  • 9 photos for sale Buy a Photo
  • JON C. LAKEY / SALISBURY POST Keshun Bradley, Brianna Turner and Allyson Shulenburger get their usual table in the media center during power U. West Rowan High school students take part in a program that started at the beginning of the school year which opened up several areas of the school for lunch and study. Power U allows the whole student body to break for lunch at 11:30 for one hour. Students can take advantage of the time to complete school tasks, seek assistance for problems and socialize and of course eat lunch. The media center has become a popular spot for students who can purchase salads and simple wrap sandwiches and sit in a cafe style. The concept feels simular to a college campus.

  • JON C. LAKEY / SALISBURY POST When asked how many of the students were planning on graduating high school, all raised their hands. Several 8th graders at North Rowan Middle School took advantage of a special visit of the Alabama based Mattie C. Stewart Foundation "The Choice Bus". The converted school bus is one of several buses that travel to schools all over the country to encourage students to stay in school. Part of the display includes a four minute video which uses the lives of prison inmates as a motivation to make choices that will better their lives as opposed to running the risk of ending up in a situation where they would make few choices; in prison. The back of the bus holds a replica of a prison cell. The students are given a glimpse in the day to day lives of inmates. Wednesday, September 30, 2015, in Spencer, N.C.
