Hunter Hooks, Isabella DeCoursey, and Selina Rice, students from South Newton Elementary opened the meeting with the Pledge of Allegiance.
Following the opening, Mr. Chris Penley, N-CHS Principal, recognized staff members Mike Allen, Eileen Crider, Miguel Silva, Laura Garza, Caroline McCrary, and Paige Smith. Mr. Penley expanded
on the value that these individuals add to the school, ways that they have made it grow and continue to achieve success.
Following, Dr. Stegall also recognized Haskew Smith and the Newton-Conover Band for their appointment to the All-County Honor Band. He expressed, with pride, that Newton-Conover had 40 students who were selected to participate in the band.
Dr. Stegall honored Angie Harris-Ramseur, former Newton-Conover Board Member, for her years of service to the school district as a dedicated member of the school board. The Board presented Mrs. Harris-Ramseur with a plaque to commemorate her service.
Following Mrs. Harris-Ramseur’s recognition, the Board voted on the selection of a new Board Member to fill the position that she vacated. After deliberations and recommendations, Mr. Phil Heath was selected to the Board to complete the remainder of Mrs. Harris-Ramseur’s term in office.
We continue to be proud of the accomplishments of our district. We wish Mrs. Harris-Ramseur well and will miss her terribly, and we look forward to welcoming Mr. Heath to service to the Board in Newton-Conover Schools!
