Throughout this week, the sixth- and seventh-graders are work-shopping personal poems under the guidance of a teaching artist from the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. WHQR’s Katie O’Reilly reports that New Hanover County Schools are one of only two districts in the state to enjoy such opportunities through the Kennedy Center.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> Wed, 11 Dec 2013 10:59:00 +0000 Katie O'Reilly 47355 at http://whqr.org DC Virgo Welcomes Resident Artist
