Carver High testing
BY LAYLA GARMS
It could be said that Daniel Piggott
Jr.'s common core algebra class is a
boys' club, and
that s the way
Piggott likes it.
Piggott led the
charge to imple
ment single gender
classes at Carver
High School in the
year. The Carver
teaches three sec
tions of algebra to
freshmen males. Another Carver teacher, I
Charita Ward, leads all-female classes, I
while a third instructor is charged with |
mixed gender groups.

There have many seminal moments in Rodney Webb's
life, but two stand out. His union to his wife. Rita, more than 30
years ago is tops; he called his induction last week into the
Winston-Salem/Forsyth County High School Sports Hall of Fame
"the second best thing that has happened to me."
Webb and 12 others make up this year's inductee class. They
join the 238 former athletes, coaches, school administrators and
boosters already in the Hall, which was established in 1983 by the
Winston-Salem Sportsmen Club.
"You (have) become part of a very elite group," Sportsmen
Club President Robert Wynn told the inductees during their April 3
coming out event at the Gathering Place building at the corner of
Sixth and Cherry streets. The building is the physical home of the
Hall of Fame, lite names of all inductees are enshrined there and
pictures of many of them from their athletic heydays hang on walls.
Though inductees are now years or decades removed from their
