EAST FORSYTH — Lakeside Middle School may have been the only place on the planet Wednesday and Thursday that you could meet John Wayne, Al Pacino, Vivien Leigh and Tyra Banks. And it was all thanks to the Living Museum, a post standardized test project that took a look at the history of movies and the stars that defined them. “Basically, we wanted to do something really cool with the kids that would keep them interested and engaged after the tests,” said seventh-grade teacher Kim Driesse.
