Fayetteville, NC – The Cumberland County Board of Education has selected Joseph Sorce to serve as the next representative from District 6. Sorce was chosen from a pool of 14 candidates.

Sorce will fill the vacancy left by Peggy Hall, who resigned in June. District 6 is the southwest area of Cumberland County, including Gray’s Creek, Hope Mills, and Stoney Point.

“We’re excited to have Mr. Sorce join our Board,” said Donna Vann, chair of the Board. “We had an unusually large and deep pool of candidates … extremely talented people with a real commitment to our school system and our community. Their strong interest has affirmed that this Board and Dr. Connelly — and his team — are on the right path and that our Strategic Plan is the blueprint for moving our students forward.”

Sorce is a retired elementary school teacher and former president of the Cumberland County Association of Educators. He received a Bachelor of Science degree in elementary education from Edinboro University of PA and a Master of Science degree in instructional media from Indiana University of PA. He also holds a Birth-K degree from the University of North Carolina at Pembroke.

“I am deeply honored to be able to serve in this capacity,” Sorce said. “I want to make a difference, and this gives me the opportunity to do that.”

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.
