Celebrating Gerry Hancock: EdNC’s founder and chair of our board

Our thanks to the NC Justice Center for honoring our founder and chair of our board, Gerry Hancock, with a Lifetime Champion of Justice award tonight. This is our favorite Gerry quote, which pretty much says it all:  “I confess to a sense of urgency. Children have only one time in their lives to be educated, and that time for our children is now.”

UNC Charlotte Chancellor Phil Dubois is on Carolina Business Review tonight.

Check out this call for participation from our colleague Kendall Hageman for the NCSSM Summer Accelerator 2020:

The North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics is excited to invite you to propose a course (or two or three) for is Summer Accelerator 2020 Program. Operating on three campuses and with 3 age groups, our Accelerator programming will run six weeks this summer.  Instructors will be paid for prep and instruction* (see link for details).
