Baldwin County High School Signing Day for Future Teachers


A very special ceremony took place at Baldwin County High School as four seniors have answered the call for a career in education as part of the Future Teachers Signing Day. They include: Molly Caruthers, Jameia Brooks, and Derriana Bishop, who will be attending Coastal Alabama Community College, and Whitney Jernigan who will attend Troy University.
As part of the ceremony, each student shared their college and career plans as well as their motivation to become a teacher. Many cited the desire to make a positive influence on students as their driving force, the impact teachers had made on their own lives, and to help students excel to their full potential.
BCHS teacher Chantelle McPherson serves as an advisor for the Future Teachers of Alabama chapter. She shared with the signees that teaching is a mission that not everyone is called to enter. “Your mission is to educate and inspire the next generation. It is an important mission and it can’t be taken lightly,” she said. “Your mission is more than teaching math, science, reading, English or history. You are teaching life and inspiring your students to fulfill their purpose.”
Future Teachers of Alabama is an organization within the Aspiring Educators/Student Division of the Alabama Education Association (AEA). It is for middle and high school students who have expressed an interested in the field of education as a career choice. The purpose of holding the Future Teachers’ Signing Day is to build statewide excitement about reducing the teacher shortage in Alabama and celebrating the seniors who are ready to take on the challenge of educating future students.
The program was implemented at BCHS in 2021. In addition to taking part in job shadowing of educators, the FTA members also take part in various service projects throughout the school year. FTA Advisors at BCHS include Chantelle McPherson, Misty Byrd, Diona Davis and Vickie Locke.

Robertsdale High School NJROTC Cadet Aims High


Robertsdale HS NJROTC Cadet Haley Wheeles competed this week in the Junior Olympic Rifle Championship at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, CO. Overall, 178 athletes came from around the nation to compete in either the Under 21, Under 18, or Under 15 categories. Cadet Wheeles competed in the Under 18 category which included 93 shooters.
The match took place over two days and Cadet Wheeles’ total was only 63.1 points less than the Junior Olympics National Champion, shooting 95% as many points as the national champion who has been shooting longer. As a result, Cadet Wheeles has drawn early interest from shooting coaches of several universities.
Noteworthy is that Cadet Wheeles practiced just once before qualifying at the state match and this week’s match is just her second 60-shot standing match ever! In addition to being a great shooter, she carries a 4.00 GPA as a junior at Elberta HS and is a Company Commander within the Robertsdale HS NJROTC program, a Leadership Academy graduate, an Alabama Girls State nominee, the Vice President of the EHS FFA, a varsity athlete, and a leader in community service. She serves as just another example of the great students involved in RHS NJROTC.

Baldwin County High Beta Chi Sigma Wins Battle of the Bay Step Show


The first time proved to be the charm for Beta Chi Sigma. The Baldwin County High School step dance team took part in the 21st annual Battle of the Bay Step Show on Saturday, March 16, and walked away as winners. This marked the team’s first time entering the competition, sponsored by Mobile Kappa League at USA Mitchell Center.
Taking top prize on their first try was exhilarating, said sponsor Kayland Lamar. “The girls were beyond excited! We all put so much time and energy into creating a show that we were proud of so the fact that all that hard work paid off was truly amazing,” she said.
Beta Chi Sigma is an elite service organization that was established in 2019 on the BCHS campus by Kayland Lamar and Norleisha Lewis. The organization is built on the principles of C.L.A.S.S. (Character, Leadership, Attitude, Sisterhood, and Scholarship). The purpose of Beta Chi Sigma is to promote positive interaction between young ladies who exemplify excellence through leadership, social and cultural awareness, character development, sisterly relations, and academic success. The team performs for pep rallies, sporting events and other school and community events.
The timeline to prepare immediately followed basketball season, which gave us just under six weeks. This was a time crunch,” Lamar said. “The ladies rose to the challenge and practiced 3-5 days a week and on some days sacrificed their lunch period to do run-throughs.” That dedication paid off in a big way. “They worked diligently to produce a concept, create the routine, and fine-tune it. They truly committed themselves to the process and pushed their bodies to the limit.
The sponsor credited team president Derriana Bishop for her leadership and said the team’s greatest advantage was that each member contributed to the show in their own unique way which “brought a personalized flair to the truly unmatched show.”
Team members were quick to thank those who have supported them along the way and who had provided additional support heading into the competition, including local businesses, school personnel, and alumni members. Their one-of-a-kind costumes were designed and created by Kennedi Grace, a junior at BCHS and member of the group’s Big Sister, Little Sister Mentoring Program.

Double State Champions for Bayside Academy Chess


The Bayside Chess Admirals steamrolled their way to state titles in high school and middle school divisions of the Alabama State Scholastic Chess Championships held March 23 in Pike Road, Alabama.
The high school team captured the U1300 rating category title, marking back-to-back championships after winning the U1200 title last year. The format is a combination individual and team event, with the top four scores counting as the team score. The chess Admirals battled players from Hoover High School, Joseph Bruno Montessori Academy (Birmingham), Phillips Preparatory School, and Contemporary Education Academy (Huntsville), among others. Although Bayside’s three-year streak of a player winning the individual title was broken, the team prevailed to take the crown. Team members are Rhett Montgomery, Jacob Stallworth, Boyce Magli, Evan Stafford, and Colt Hancock, all of whom finished in the top ten and took home individual medals.
The middle school team played in the highly competitive U1100 division, featuring 36 players. Bayside dominated teams from Bumpus Middle School (Hoover), Discovery Middle School (Huntsville), Hayden Middle School (Warrior), and Foley, clinching the title after four rounds in the five-round event. Team members are John Stephen Klimjack, Huan Chen, Don Chen, Elias Blossom, Ben Freeman, and Eli Solomon. Klimjack finished with four points out of five and took home a fourth–place medal. Don Chen had 3.5 points and finished ninth. This is the first middle school state championship for Bayside since 2004.
Michael Klimjack played in the open section, a two-day event, and took seventh place overall.
With these titles, Bayside Chess now has a total of 14 State Championships, more than any other school in Alabama. Of these, nine are high school, three middle school, one junior varsity, and one elementary. All of them are in the 7A classification, since there are no divisions by school size in chess.
