The schools in Pender County were recognized Wednesday night during a Celebrate Success event at Trask High School.
Celebrate Success is an opportunity for academic achievements at the schools to be showcased and for employer partners to begin establishing pathways for students into the job market.
"The concept here is, we’ve really got to get out in the public and let everyone know this is a wonderful school system," Pender County Schools Superintendent Steven Hill said. "We’re actually the difference between a quality life and maybe not. So the idea here is that we are spotlighting the successes of the schools so we can ensure every kid has an opportunity to be whatever they want to be."
Each school had staff members present to share information about special programs, curriculum, technology, and more.
