On Nov. 18, 2016, we welcomed Cat Warren, professor at NC State and of What the Dog Knows: Scent, Science, and the Amazing Ways Dogs Perceive the World. 9th and 10 graders gathered in the auditorium to watch her presentation on the science and training involved in her work with Solo, a cadaver dog. She also raffled off 20 signed copies of her book to students.
Holocaust survivor, Abe Piasek, visited TMSA on Jan. 25, 2017. He spoke with 9th and 10th graders about his experiences growing up, being taken to concentration camps, being liberated by Allied forces, and emigrating to the United States. His visit was facilitated by the North Carolina Council on the Holocaust.
