The Newton-Conover City School District has been extremely fortunate over the years to have had numerous dedicated individuals who have committed their lives to building the continued integrity of the district. These individuals have given of their time, efforts, finances and other resources, expecting nothing in return. The success of N-CCS over the years is in no small part due to these dedicated champions of the cause. A Red Blazer committee will select two (2) individuals annually to be recognized with a Red Blazer Award.
Nominations for the award will be accepted from February 9 to March 6, 2017. The district will solicit nominations for candidates on the district websites, in the local newspapers, and through stakeholder groups. Nomination forms are also available at the Newton-Conover City Schools administrative office, as well as in school offices. 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 Red Blazer Committee will select and notify two (2) recipients during the last two weeks of March. Candidates who are nominated, but are not awarded, will remain on a nomination list that will be maintained by the committee. Please find a copy of the nomination form linked here. Please return all nomination forms to Mr. Jamie Frye, Public Information Officer, by e-mail to jamie.frye (at) n-ccs.org, or by mail to 605 N. Ashe Avenue, Newton, NC 28658, no later than close of business on Monday, March 6, 2017.
For additional information on making a nomination or attending the May 11, 2017 celebratory banquet in which the award winners will be announced, please contact Mr. Jamie Frye at 828-464-3191 or jamie.frye (at) n-ccs.org
