Ribbon Cutting & Open House

On Tuesday, Nov. 20, before a nice-sized crowd, the ribbon-cutting and Open House was held at the newly renovated Russellville 21st Century Center.  Despite the chilly weather conditions, Board Members and Superintendent, Bart Flener, were close at hand for the actual ribbon cutting provided by Ms. Pandora Christian with the Logan County Chamber of Commerce.  The RHS Choir shared several selections to begin the evening, and the RHS Jazz Band entertained in the new RISE (Russellville Independent Senior Experience) area.  Ashley McGinnis and her Culinary Students had baked cupcakes, prepared punch, and served the guests that attended.  Food Service Director, Lisa Cox, had her Café Cart on display and shared details as she gave away bottles of water.  There was a showcase presented with the 6th Graders referring to their terrific new area.  Those students recognized were:  Abryian Rodriguez, Camille Whitescarver, Joseph Parrish, Michelle Xie, Santos Guerrero Johnson, Aiden Garrie, Carolina Gwynette, Kayelynn Davenport, Noah Terry, Tori Holder, Alexzander Holdren, Ellie Rogers, LaReesha Cawthorn, Octavius McKeage, Alicia Davis, Gage Rosser, Maddison Kimbrough, Riley Hatfield, Andrae Woodard, Grayson Beard, Madicyn Faith, Samson Hightower, Caleb Ragland, Jayce Sparks, Mattie Stratton, Samuel Edge, Shirley Lin, and Deric Hardimon.  Tours and information was shared from our STEAM Factory.  The exciting evening also brought about a time for a Public Safety Forum with several participants having the opportunity to express their opinions and concerns prior to the regularly monthly scheduled Board Meeting.  Great things are happening at Russellville Independent Schools, and if you have a chance, please feel free to stop by and see for yourself!
