    The Magnolia School
    The Magnolia School Photo - In 2011, The Magnolia School won $10,000 from the Bealls & Whistles for Schools grant program. The money was used together with PTO funds and other sources to replace the school's then 22-year-old bus. The students wrote, performed a blues song about the bus, which they then recorded and used as their entry.
