Walton High School band recently hosted a visit from the Baptist College of Florida Guitar Ensemble! November 15, 2019, BCF Assistant Professor Jonathan Erp and the BCF Guitar Ensemble came to provide a clinic and perform for the guitar students at WHS. The interchange provided an opportunity for WHS guitar students to connect with a post-secondary guitar program, and learn more about college level options and expectations.

In the continued effort to promote college readiness through AVID, Advancement via Individual Determination, WDE 5th graders created “college turkeys” to represent their teacher’s college choice. Mr. Stafford’s class represented the University of Florida, Mrs. Garrett’s represented Troy University, Mrs. Currid’s choice was Northwest Florida State College, Ms. Dickey chose Southwestern Oklahoma University, and Mrs. Bush’s class choice was Louisiana State University. The students researched information such as the tuition, special programs, clubs, and the different sports that the college offers, the mascot, colors, and what academia interested each student individually about the teacher chosen college.
