On October 7th, PSRC students and advisors involved with SkillsUSA at the Robeson County Career Center took out time to volunteer their services to help their neighbors in need during the NC Day of Service. The students worked along with North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper and other volunteers who repair homes in Robeson County which were damaged by Hurricane Matthew.
300 students and parents from throughout the region attended the Public Schools of Robeson County Scholarship Night this week. The event was sponsored by the Indian Education Resource Center. The students received information from presenters from a dozen colleges including NC State, Chapel Hill and Duke University.
The donation was part of the National Day of Service. Last week N.C. Secretary of Administration, Machelle Sanders delivered the supplies and visited with students at three at Carroll Middle School, Lumberton High School and West Lumberton Elementary. The governors office partnered with the North Carolina Business Committee for Education, State Employees Credit Union, and Communities In Schools of North Carolina to run an annual school supply drive to help address unmet classroom needs in North Carolina’s public schools.
