Winter Carnival raises money through club participation

Recently the theater arts department at Unicoi County High School hosted its third annual Winter Carnival.
At the carnival, visitors enjoyed Dance-Dance Revolution and even traveled to France. Students could also throw pies at their teachers, as well as enjoy other activities hosted by UCHS clubs and organizations.
Tracy Foster, Erwin, who has attended all three winter carnivals along with her two nieces and sister, said this year’s winter carnival was “by far the best.”
Lori Ann Wright, theater arts teacher, was in charge of the winter carnival. “I am really pleased at the turn out this year,” she said. “I think the clubs and organizations did a wonderful job of creating fun activities, crafts, and delicious foods, for the community.
“I was especially pleased by all of the students in high school that got involved this year. I would like to thank all of the clubs and organizations because they are the reason everyone had a great time,” Wright said.
Kim Berry is a health occupations teacher at UCHS. She, along with Kathy Bullen, is in charge of the Health Occupation Students of America.  HOSA had two booths at the winter carnival. “I think that it’s a great opportunity for the clubs and organizations to show the community what services they have to offer and at the same time it benefits the students,” she said.
