Board Gives Proclamations Approval
The Board pledged its support to activities that honor, assist, and thank military children by proclaiming April 2012 as the Month of the Military Child in the Cumberland County Schools.

May 4, 2012, was approved by the Board as Very Special Arts Day. Through the proclamation, the Board is encouraging everyone to express their appreciation to the Very Special Arts festival, the United Way of Cumberland County, and the Arts Council of Fayetteville/Cumberland County for 30 years of excellence and for making a positive impact on children in the Cumberland County Schools. According to the proclamation, the Very Special Arts festival “makes it possible for students with disabilities to participate in the arts the same way as all other students.”

Recognitions
Student government leader Harris McClean from Cross Creek Early College High School served as the ex-officio member of the Cumberland County Board of Education during the April 17 meeting. Ex-officio members are given the opportunity to make comments, ask questions, and give input on any topic brought before the Board.

Betty Musselwhite, the associate superintendent of School Support, recognized the newly announced CCS’ Social Workers of the Year Isley Cotton from Margaret Willis Elementary School and Sheila Campbell from Westover High School. The two will go on to compete for the state title, which will be announced in October. Musselwhite also introduced March’s Amazing Acts of Character honoree Kiana Gasque from E. Melvin Honeycutt Elementary School. The lone honoree, chosen from individual school nominations for displaying ‘acts of good character,’ was also recognized by the Board.
