Shield with the words School Angels Watch on it and the Cumberland County Schools' Logo with wingsThe Cumberland County School system is looking for volunteers to be a part of the School Angels Program. These individuals will be ‘an additional set of eyes and ears’ on school campuses across the County in order to help keep them safe. School Angels will patrol school grounds with radios, report suspicious activity, ensure all gates and fences are secure as well as make certain all other Safety and Security measures are properly followed. All volunteers, who are considered non-paid employees, should be well-groomed, professionally dressed, and pass a background check. For more information about how you can become a School Angel Community Volunteer, visit schoolwatch.ccs.k12.nc.us, or contact the program’s coordinator, Kenneth McKinnon, at 910.678.2457.
