The excitement over the Community Based Instruction program that began this year at Dawson County High School is palpable-particularly when speaking to the teachers who are making it work. Ashley Elliott, Edith Banta and Lacy Hammond are pouring themselves into the exceptional children of DCHS and are finding their way with the newly instituted effort that will give these students opportunities well beyond the walls of the school. "We are all passionate about it," said Edith Banta who is the lead teacher for the CBI program.
