Huntsville Students Win "Best Newcomer" in Greenpower Car Race in England

Huntsville City Schools’ students proved they have the “right stuff” in engineering, as the team earned very impressive results in their first effort at a Greenpower Competition on Sunday at the Goodwood Motor Circuit in West Sussex England. Huntsville’s Team USA place 7th out of 14 teams in the ninety minute race, and finished with an impressive 13th out of 50 in the four hour long second race. The group was awarded “Best Newcomer”, and the “Siemens Innovator Award” following the competition. The Huntsville team earned a spot to the National finals that will be held in October of this year. Team USA becomes one of the few teams ever to qualify for the finals after just their first time to compete in a Greenpower Race.

Jeremy Way, CEO with the Greenpower Education Trust, said this was the best showing ever of a first time competitor in the history of the race. Mike Brown, the director of academic relations with Siemens, was very impressed with the Huntsville students, stating that “the depth of engineering knowledge that these kids are getting from building and racing in the Greenpower Car Competition is phenomenal”. One of the goals of the Greenpower Education Trust is to inspire the next generation of engineers. Siemens is a major supporter of the education initiative.

The Huntsville Team will have an opportunity to tour the nearby Rolls Royce Plant in West Sussex on Monday, and will finish their trip on Tuesday, getting to tour an 11th century historical structure, Arundel Castle. The group will return to Huntsville on Wednesday.

55 percent of Madison's Class of 2014 graduated with scholarship offers | By Crystal Bonvillian | This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

MADISON, Alabama -- Graduating seniors at Madison's two high schools topped themselves last month when about 55 percent of those graduates walked across the stage with scholarships in hand.

Between the schools, graduates received offers of more than $35 million in scholarships, said John Peck, public relations manager for the school system. They accepted about $16 million of the funds, or an average of about $35,000 per student.

A total of 454 out of 830 graduates at Bob Jones and James Clemens high schools got offers, Peck said. The percentage of students earning scholarships sets a new record for the district, which last year saw about 50 percent of its graduates earn scholarships.

"At Bob Jones alone, we had 983 scholarships for a total of $28.67 million offered, but only $12.2 (million) accepted," Peck said.

Bob Jones reported 338 out of its 578 graduates, or almost 59 percent, getting offers, Peck said. That is a fairly steep jump from 51 percent in 2013.

In just its second year of existence, James Clemens saw 116 (46 percent) of its 252 graduates receive scholarship offers, up from 36 percent in 2013. James Clemens also had more than three times the students this year than it had in its inaugural year.

"It is important to note that the numbers at James Clemens were impacted by the final year of a high school zoning waiver," Peck said. "Students who were attending Bob Jones when James Clemens opened were given the option of staying there through their senior year. Some of this year's scholarship recipients at Bob Jones actually reside in the James Clemens school zone."

Superintendent Dee Fowler said the new scholarship record reflects the students' hard work and the commitment by the school district to provide them with rigorous academic and career preparatory curriculum.

"The courses we offer and the instruction we deliver are intentionally crafted as part of our strategic plan to ensure that every student will graduate successfully prepared for college and careers," Fowler said in a statement.
