Sharon White’s tenth grade world history class at Lugoff-Elgin High School competed in a Polis Pride lesson to learn about the ancient Greek city-states.  Students developed skits and performed for classmates in order to share their knowledge.  The competitions throughout the week were physical and intellectual to illustrate the Greek ideal of balance between intellect and physical strength.  The students in the city state of Argos won the competitions. A festival celebration followed the entertainment and students ate homemade baklava and other Greek delicacies.  Lakinndra Johnson  stated, “ I learned that life wasn’t always fair for women.”  Alli Branham stated, “ I think our group did really well. We had fun working together, and we helped each other to learn.”  Keontae Moye stated, “ I learned a lot of information from other groups and all the events that took place were fun.” Front row: Kristi Brown, Helena Boone, Kelsey Miles, Quincy Samuel, Elizabeth Qualls, William Grant 2nd row: Megan Chapman, Tyler Wiseman, Brooke Beauchemin, Courtney Amerson, Laura Rashley 3rd row: Mrs. White, Marissa Drost, Colleen Bradley, Emily Emmons, Lindsey Marshall, Alli Branham, Katelyn Davis, Keontae Moye Back row: Brad Brazell, Makayla Caldwell, Josh Soares,  Zac Mathis, Felix Arnold, Heather Bartlett, Destiny Ferrante, Lakinndra Johnson
