RALEIGH — Scotland County Schools Superintendent Dr. Ron Hargrave appeared before the General Assembly’s House of Appropriations Committee on Wednesday, speaking in favor of teacher’s assistants as well as the need for the restoration of driver’s education program in the state budget.
“Removing this allocation from the state’s final budget puts financial hardships on families, counties, and school districts,” Hargrave said, adding information about the county’s poverty and unemployment rates.
He was accompanied by state Rep. Garland Pierce of Wagram.
“He was a great ambassador for education in Scotland County and across the state of North Carolina,” Pierce said of Hargrave’s presentation.
Pierce and Hargrave then met with Speaker of the House Tim Moore to discuss the House budget in detail.
