                  Eastover-Central was one of 349 schools recognized across the country today, and one of eight schools recognized in North Carolina.

                  “The students, guardians, parents, greater school community, staff and faculty of Eastover-Central Elementary School of Arts are thrilled to be chosen for this distinction,” said Ashley Porter, principal of Eastover-Central. “As earning the National Blue Ribbon accolade is the highest honor bestowed upon a school in the United States, it is humbling and simultaneously emblematic of the daily dedication and hard work of all Eastover-Central stakeholders.”
