Fayetteville, NC – For 19 years, Cumberland County Schools (CCS) displayed a logo featuring a book to symbolize a thirst for knowledge, a seedling to represent the re-creation of public schools and a horizon to exemplify the school system’s eye on the future. The Cumberland County Board of Education approved a new CCS logo at its June meeting, which builds upon the former logo.

With the help of Dr. Bill Harrison, the former superintendent of CCS, the Board officially retired the school system’s previous logo at Tuesday night’s Board meeting. Board chair Donna Vann presented a framed copy of the former logo to Harrison along with a newly minted CCS challenge coin.

“As we look to the future and continue our quest to provide students with engaging learning experiences that will prepare them to be collaborative, competitive and successful, we wanted to take time to appreciate the past,” said Vann. “We appreciate Dr. Harrison for leading CCS into the 21st century and for his continued support of our school system.”

CCS’ new logo is made up of several graphic elements, including an open book with a stylized student wearing a graduation cap reaching for the stars. The icon conveys that graduation and success are attainable for all students.

“We’re grateful to Dr. Harrison for the leadership he provided to our school system during his tenure as superintendent,” said Dr. Marvin Connelly, Jr., superintendent of CCS. “We will never forget his significant contributions to Cumberland County Schools.”
