  • Blackwell Artman Media Center

    The Charlotte High School Media Center has been dedicated in honor of two former educators who were influential in the lives of many CHS students. Steve Blackwell came to CHS as an English teacher in 1972. In 1987 he began working part-time in the media center. He became a full-time media specialist in 1989, a position he retained until September 2006. Steve was also a wrestling, cross-country, and football coach. He loved helping students connect with great books and writers, with history and its lessons, and with the arts. He believed that creativity was an honor, which he shared generously through his music. George Artman, Jr., came to CHS in 1971 as a cornerstone of the Social Studies Department. During his 34 years at CHS, he consistently brought new and creative teaching methodologies to his history classes. He firmly believed that both the acquisition of knowledge and the development of individual values were critical to formal education. He engaged students through the use of war simulations, the Socratic Method, and evening discussions in the library.
