LENOIR, North Carolina (March 11, 2022) – Students in grades three through five received their first edition of Foothills Kids Magazine, a nonprofit magazine that provides free educational content to schools in western North Carolina.

“Thanks to the outpouring of support from the business community, more than six thousand students have had access to local information about science, culture and the arts,” said Executive Director Aaron Kohrs.

Local businesses supported the magazine’s layout filled with grade-level curriculum content. Sponsors include Corning Optical Communications, Pepsi Bottling Company, Modern Nissan of Hickory, Sabrina Cook CPA, Steve White Motors, Allegra Printing and Roseann Flowers – Hickory Real Estate Group.

Elementary teachers and principals have complimented the child-friendly design that enhances the curriculum elements introduced in the third and fourth grade learning levels.

“This educational piece includes non-fiction material and extracurricular activities for students,” said Adrienne Dula, Principal of Gamewell Elementary. “The students enjoyed reading their magazines at school and then taking them home to do fun learning activities with their families. It’s a great resource that supports what we do in the classroom.
