Edgecombe County

Building the future of rural North Carolina: One student, one school, one community at a time

We have embedded in Edgecombe County during the past six months, chronicling their struggles and successes. The area was hit particularly hard by Hurricane Matthew, and in the coming days we will be reporting on their recovery efforts. But we wanted to start the series by letting our readers get a sense for what the county is like, and how the community is working together to try and provide a high-quality education to all of their students.
