On Thursday, April 16, NCCS Student Advisory members from North Newton, Shuford, South Newton, NCMS, Discovery, and NCHS faced a Shark Tank of district and community leaders as they pitched their products to re-brand Newton-Conover City Schools. Students worked in teams over the course of the past year to develop prototypes for products or ideas that could be developed as we rebrand our district. Advisory teams pitched the following ideas: The NCCS Charm Bracelet, the AIO Notebook, the NCCS Parade Float, Cell Phone Cases, NCCS Teen Magazine, NCCS Dri-Fit T-Shirt with new Newton-Conover design, and a re-visioning of the NCCS logo – the compass.
Judges included Crystal Glenn, Executive Director, Workforce Development Innovation Center at Catawba Valley Community College; Byron Hill, Director of the Regional Center at NC SBTDC at ASU; Kimberly Propst, Apprenticeship Coordinator at Catawba Valley Community College; Dr. David Stegall, Superintendent; and Dr. Aron Gabriel, Assistant Superintendent.
On May 7 at 5:00 pm, Student Advisory members, their families, and school and district leaders are invited to the Student Advisory Final Product Showcase. These students will be honored, and the two winners of the contest will be announced. NCCS will fund the two winning projects.
