As a result of the partnership between Scotland County Schools, Richmond Community College, the Chamber of Commerce and a host of various businesses and industries, Scotland County was recently certified as an ACT Work Keys 'Work Ready Community'. We are only one of 28 communities in the state to have earned this certification.
“Scotland County has demonstrated its commitment to work-force readiness, well surpassing their goals for certification with over 1,600 career-readiness certificates awards and over 44 employers signing on to recognize the certificates,” said NC Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Manager, Meaghan Lewis. “Being a Work Ready Community signals to businesses that there are workers in the county with the foundations skills to make their business a success,” said Lewis. “The end result is more skilled and employed workers, more profitable and prosperous businesses, healthier communities and a secure future for North Carolina.”
During Monday night's regular Board of Education, we recognized and celebrated the follow students, staff, and community members:
The Pledge of Allegiance was led by Carver 6th grader, Cadence Winter, and the Scotland High JROTC Color Guard.
The Key Player Award was presented to School Resource Officer, Larry Bowman.
A special recognition was presented to Project InAsMuch for all that they do for our students and their families. This group of volunteers provides bags of food every weekend to over 1,070 of our students that may not have much to eat at home.
And finally, we introduced the new Scotland High School principal, Mr. Brian Edkins, and his family (Wife, Susan, and son, Hunter. Two of his sons were not able to be there).
