King of the (ICU) Hill

Southside's Danny Hill stomps out student apathy

By KEN BECK
Special to The Wilson Post
Seven years ago this spring Southside Elementary School Principal Danny Hill went to war.

The enemy?  Student apathy.

He developed a battle strategy that he named ICU (intensive care unit), and by communicating with a schoolwide list to track missing student assignments, Hill has systematically and powerfully reformed the learning process at his school and dozens of others.

The foundation for this budding paradigm shift is built upon the theme of every student completing every assignment. That means that no zeros are recorded in the grade books. The results are more learning, higher test scores and less negative behaviors.

Wicks to play NSS post-race concert Saturday, April 23
LEBANON -- Nashville To You recording artist Chuck Wicks will play a live post-race concert immediately following the NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Nashville Superspeedway on Saturday, April 23, 2011. The race is scheduled to begin at 2 p.m. The concert is free to all April 23 race ticket holders.
 
Wicks hails from the small town of Smyrna, Del., and getting to where he is today hasn't come easily. Although he took the country music format by storm in 2008 with his Top 5 debut single, "Stealing Cinderella," and his Top 15 follow-up hit, "All I Ever Wanted," he continues to work hard to develop his craft.
 
He spent several years paying his dues by parking cars and writing songs, while apprenticing with some of country music's top songwriters. His hard work eventually paid off, as he began to tour relentlessly, including the entire 2008 Brad Paisley Tour. In 2009, his appearance on ABC's Dancing with the Stars earned him even more national recognition.
