Each Spring, as part of the Polk Campus ECCE 1113 Creative Activities class, students stage some form of musical presentation to local daycares. In the past, students have performed Disney’s “Little Mermaid-Kiss the Girl,” last year’s presentation of “Snow White’s-Heigh Ho” to local preschooler’s, and they even flash mobbed other GNTC students in the main lobby to Michael Jackson’s “Thriller.” This year’s presentation, “Wiggle with the Wiggles,” was presented to a local daycare, Creative Kids Learning Center. Children were served popcorn and invited to watch and dance along to several Wiggles songs. They were provided with a program and a Wiggles activity pack.

GNTC GOAL winner Alice Towe has won a $26,000 scholarship at the Statewide GOAL Competition in Atlanta, Georgia. The scholarship will go towards a pursuit of a bachelor’s degree at DeVry University, if she so chooses. Congratulations, Alice!
