Get your floats ready for Mt. Juliet Christmas Parade
Tuesday, November 12, 2013

The City of Mt. Juliet is seeking participants for their annual Holiday Parade. This year’s theme is “Christmas through the Decades.”  Entries are encouraged to choose a decade such as the 1920s or 1950s and decorate in the holiday spirit of that time.  We’re expecting flappers and mobsters, poodle skirts and greasers, and a whole lot of creativity from all our participants.  

Lead by Grand Marshall Erron Kinney, the City’s first Fire Chief, This year’s parade will begin at the First Baptist Church of Mt. Juliet, head northbound on N. Mt. Juliet Road, and then end when it reaches Charlie Daniels Parkway.

Entry fee is $10 which will go towards the Mt. Juliet Police Department’s Christmas with a Cop program. Each year, the Mt. Juliet Police Department selects low-income children, with the help of local schools, and takes them on a “shopping spree” for toys, clothes, books, and more.  The Christmas with a Cop program started in 2005. Last year, the department was able to sponsor 21 children and hope to have more this year.

Parade Sponsored by: The City of Mt. Juliet, Mt. Juliet Parks & Recreation, TDS TV, ITR LLC, Two Rivers Ford, and Providence Marketplace.

WCHS’ Stafford gets top score on ACT
Tuesday, November 5, 2013

Elijah M Stafford, son of Rodney and Jennifer Stafford and a Senior at Wilson Central High School, earned a top composite score of 36 on a recent ACT test. Nationally, while the actual number of students earning a composite score of 36 varies from year to year, on average, less than one-tenth of one percent of students who take the ACT earn the top score. Among test takers in the high school graduating class of 2013, only 1,162 of more than 1.8 million students earned a composite score of 36.

The ACT consists of tests in English, mathematics, reading and science. Each test is scored on a scale of 1-36, and a student’s composite score is the average of the four test scores. Some students also take ACT’s optional Writing Test, but the score for that test is reported separately and is not included within the ACT composite score.

In a letter recognizing this exceptional achievement, ACT CEO Jon Whitmore said, “While test scores are just one of the many criteria that most colleges consider when making admission decisions, your exceptional ACT composite score should prove helpful as you pursue your education and career goals.” 

ACT test scores are accepted by all major U.S. colleges, and exceptional scores of 36 provide colleges with evidence of student readiness for the academic rigors that lie ahead.
