Harrison Construction Gifts Holston Middle School

On Friday, Jan. 29 at 10:30 a.m., Harrison Construction will host a special assembly for seventh grade students at Holston Middle School to announce the plans for their $15,210 grant to the school.

The grant was given with the intent that a group of seventh grade students be given an incredible opportunity to further their knowledge, appreciation and love of science and math—what that really means for students is a surprise not to be revealed until April. Employees from Harrison Construction, School Board Member Gloria Deathridge (District 1), and teachers from Holston Middle School will be on hand during the assembly to introduce the grant and explain the process students will go through to have a chance to secure such an exciting opportunity.

During the spring semester, the seventh graders will undergo three interdisciplinary challenges. At the completion of each challenge, teachers will determine which students move on to compete in the next challenge. On Friday, April 1, at 10:30 a.m., at the end of the final challenge, sixteen students will be showcased during a celebratory assembly and the “opportunity of a lifetime” will be revealed to them.
