DPI Recognizes Serilda Goodwin
MEP Program Receives $4,000 Hurricane Florence Grant
On Thursday January 10, 2019 the State Board of Education recognized (4) Four PSRC Employees among the groups from across the state that were honored for their successful submission of FAST NC Grants. The PSRC employees are (3) teachers from Magnolia Elementary - Crystal McDonald, Erica Oxendine, Deanna Caulder and Migrant Education Recruiter Serilda Goodwin. Former State Superintendent's Mike Ward and June Atkinson welcomed and congratulated the FAST NC Recipients. FAST NC or Florence Aid to Students and Teachers of North Carolina is a bipartisan effort led by a group of current and former North Carolina education leaders to help the state’s public schools as students and educators struggle to return to normal following Hurricane Florence and its impact. NC State School Board Member Dr. Olivia Oxendine also attended Magnolia Elementary and mentioned her connection to the community before the recognition. The NC State Board's recognition took place at the Department of Public Instruction building in Raleigh.
The $4,000 FAST NC grant will be used to replace books, supplies, food, and IPad accessories that were lost during the flood.
