The annual NAACP Back to School, Stay Event was a success due in part to our sponsors, volunteers and members and Dr. Freda Singletary.
The response to the event was well received by our community which was reflected by attendance and sponsorship.
I was very pleased with the participation of the Scotland County school system administrators who took the time out of their busy schedule’s to welcome their respective students.
I am grateful to our community for demonstrating that they believe in our youth and sowing seeds into their future.
Can anything good come out of Scotland County Schools? Come and see.
The challenge that was left with our students to be an positive example on a daily basis.
