Also, at the same meet he ran a 10:42min true 2 mile (about 18 meters farther than a 3200m) race placing 1st in that race.  See  results from the meet  and  results from overall meet .  This was not with a school team but a club team which several kids from UH are on. This was a big milestone for him, being the first time he has ever run under a 5 minute mile.  Congratulations to Jeb Jones!

  • photo 8th Grade Field Experience:  Recently, 8th grade students from Mrs. Amy Horton's US History and Geography Class participated in a Field Experience in Northeast Tennessee.  Students began the experience with a guided historical tour of the town of Jonesborough and ended the day with a special invitation to tour the Embree House in Telford, TN.  This trip was free of charge to students as part of the ETSU College of Education's Dean's Mini Grant.  Mrs. Horton collaborated with Dr. Daryl Carter, Associate Professor of History at ETSU; Deborah Montanti, Executive Director of the Heritage Alliance; Ms. Anne Mason, Special Projects Coordinator of the Heritage Alliance; and Dr. and Mrs. Stern, owners of the Embree House.

    As part of the grant, students learned about the abolitionist movement in Northeast Tennessee in 1820 including Elihu Embree (the publisher of the Emancipator- the country's first abolitionist newspaper) as well as the role of  slavery in Northeast Tennessee.  To share their experience, students worked in groups to create documentaries of the Abolitionist Movement. These are set for publication to You Tube in the next week.

    Thank you Dr. Angela Lewis, ETSU COE Dean of Education, for the grant!  View Event Photos





  • Art Exhibit:  For the last 4 years, the University School elementary art program has been working with the Mary B. Martin  Foundation to provide art work that is used at the annual volunteer dinner.  Usually this has affected only two or three classes. This year the volunteer event will include a poetry reading by Jesse Graves, one of the University’s English professors. Mr. Graves will be reading from his book on Appalachian Poetry. Our elementary art students are surprising him not only with student art work, but poems as well. 

    The reason for this letter is to let you know that the art work and poetry by our Elementary / Academy / Middle School Students (Grades 1-8) will be on display for this event and will also be available for viewing during the week of April 27th through May 1st.  The work will be located in Room 422 of the Sherrod Library.  This room is dedicated to Appalachian Studies and is open to the public Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.  This is a wonderful opportunity to have a display of our students’ work at one time and in one place. 

    I would like to encourage you to take a few minutes to go look at our “show.”  All the pieces of art have an Appalachian theme.  Each grade level had a somewhat different subject.  If you have any questions, please feel free to email me.  Ms. Ellen Pitts ( ).
