EdNC. Essential education news. Important stories. Your voice.

Tuesday, November 3, 2015

EdNC staff, in conjunction with the Jamie Kirk Hahn Foundation, will be co-hosting Gathering for Good collaborative workshops over lunch as part of the Department of Public Instruction’s Summerpalooza Summer Nutrition Program. Summerpalooza will provide an opportunity to learn more about the summer nutrition programs in North Carolina, identify ways to reduce barriers, and pinpoint areas where summer meals are needed to reduce food insecurity, according to DPI. This week the events will be held in New Bern and Greenville. 

Yesterday, the CMS Foundation announced that Sonja Gantt will be its new executive director. A letter to CMS Foundation Task Force Members says, “Sonja is a talented journalist, well known community leader and a CMS graduate and parent. She has been thoughtfully investigating a career change from journalism to education for a while. We believe her unique combination of community knowledge, communications skills, passion for public education and trusted leadership make her the perfect leader to serve as the bridge between CMS and our dedicated donor partners.” Here is an article in The Charlotte Observer.
