We could not be more thrilled to announce our congratulations to Edenton-Chowan County, Hoke County, Robeson County, and Wayne County public schools!
These small, rural counties will now get the financial support they so need to improve places of learning for their kids. Here’s what your play has given them:
- Edenton-Chowan Public Schools, a $15 million grant, to help build a new high school.
- Hoke County Public Schools, a $10 million grant, to help build the SandHoke School of Engineering, a state-of-the-art facility that will support applied studies in the field of engineering.
- Robeson County Public Schools, a $15 million grant, to help build the Robeson County Career and Technology Center.
- Wayne County Public Schools, a $15 million grant, to replace the almost 100-year-old Fremont Elementary School.
The grants come from the Needs-Based Public School Capital Fund. You may have heard us talk about this grant before. It began as a means to help counties with critical building needs with money raised exclusively by the lottery.
So far, 26 school districts across North Carolina have received grants, resulting in 26 new school or buildings and the replacement of 29 older, existing schools.
Thank you for supporting this great cause. These four new projects sound like great new places of learning.
