Hadd makes dean's list

Alexandria Hadd, of Lehigh Acres, was named to Oglethorpe University's dean's list for the fall 2012 semester.

Hadd, a psychology and a math major, was one of about 260 students to earn the distinction, which requires students to achieve at least a 3.5 grade point average while maintaining a full-time class schedule during the semester.

Students to attend symphony concerts

Local students will take a journey with the Southwest Florida Symphony Orchestra to discover how the symphony is part of their everyday lives with the concert, the Symphony Is All Around You.

Music by Beethoven, Mozart and Tchaikovsky, as well as selections from "Harry Potter," "Indiana Jones" and "Star Wars."

The performances, to be held May 7 at the Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall, are nearly sold-out. The program is designed for fifth-grade students but is open to all grade levels.

A packet of educational materials is available on the symphony's Web site at: www.swflso.org.

The program is offered free to area elementary schools with support from Publix Supermarkets Charities.

Funding help for transportation was made available with the support of LCEC and the Southwest Florida Symphony Society.

Those interested in attending can contact (239) 418-0996.
