HCS continues to improve technologyPublished 11:53am Wednesday, May 8, 2013
School Superintendent Dr. Mike Reed hopes to use the new Hartselle High School as an example what type of technology he’d like to see throughout the Hartselle City School system.
Reed said the school has wireless Internet throughout the new high school, which can allow students to have Internet access with their laptops, iPads and other digital devices.
“We’re already working to make the other schools like this as well,” Reed said during the keynote address at the Hartselle Area Chamber of Commerce’s Annual Meeting and Banquet at the new school cafeteria.
In addition to touting the new school’s technology, he also continued to talk about the solvency of the school system, citing that the school system continues to hold at least four months of reserves when only one month is required. Reed said that has helped the school system not to have to lay off any teachers during a reduction in workforce.
During the Chamber of Commerce’s meeting, its annual awards were given out.
Sandy Johnson received the Ambassador of the Year Award. Ferrell Vest received the John J. Sparkman Citizenship Award.
Dr. Mark A. Hendrix received the Business of the Year Award and Tom and Linda Guyton were awarded the Thomas M. Guyton Humanitarian Award.
