Newton-Conover City Schools has been extremely fortunate over the years to have had numerous dedicated individuals who have committed themselves to the success of the district. These individuals have given of their time, effort, finances, and other resources, expecting nothing in return. The success of the district over the years is in no small part due to these dedicated champions of the cause. A Red Blazer committee will select up to four individuals annually to be recognized with a Red Blazer Award. Nominations for the award will be accepted from February 3- February 28, 2014. The district will solicit nominations for candidates on the district website, in the local newspapers, and through stakeholder groups. Nomination forms are also available at the Newton-Conover City Schools administrative office. Neither current Board of Education members nor current school system employees are eligible for the award. Nominations may be made posthumously. Nominees do not have to have been a former employee of the school district. The committee will then select and notify up to four (4) recipients by the end of March. Candidates who are nominated, but are not awarded, will remain on a nomination list that will be maintained by the committee.
Please return all nomination forms to Dr. Betsy Rosenbalm at 605 N. Ashe Avenue, Newton, NC 28658, no later than Friday, February 28, 2014.
