After visiting Lawrence County High School for an upcoming story about Close the Deal, I stopped by their neighbor to the west, Sandy Hook Elementary School (Elliott County). The school serves approximately 250 students in kindergarten through sixth grade.
Walking around the school with principal Vanessa Maggard, a former classroom teacher, her past experience became obvious. She interacted with students regarding content areas and was a good sport when students asked her to participate in their art activity.
