Edgecombe County, NC: Bringing Educators and Leaders Together to Discuss Community Impact

Last Updated: March 11, 2017

The community dialogue in this rural North Carolina district is especially important because the input from the Blue Ribbon Commission on Educational Commission and the Edgecombe County community will help shape the school district's three-year plan. Much of the focus is on how the district can move the entire community forward in the face of complicated socioeconomic challenges.

Dr. Doris Terry Williams, a principal consultant and senior fellow at The Rural School and Community Trust, led the group in asking the question: "What is our vision for the success of our children?”

Meeting attendees  were asked to invite five people in their networks to attend the next meeting, on March 21st at North Edgecombe High School. Dr. Williams ended her remarks by emphasizing the importance of a school system in being a catalyst for change in a community.
