Hertford County Public Schools cordially invites Pastors and Ministers to a Faith-Based Collaborative on Tuesday, October 17, 2017 at the Board of Education in Winton, North Carolina beginning at 10:00 AM. We are “All In For Learning.” As the old African proverb says, "It Takes a Village to Raise a Child." One could imagine then that it would take a community to raise a school. We are asking all Pastors and Ministers to join Superintendent Dr. William T. Wright, Jr. in an intimate conversation discussing the fate of our schools. We can't rely on local, state, or federal governments to take ownership of the issues we face locally. We need to work as a community to nurture our schools for our particular community needs. Please bring all of your concerns and ideas to this meeting. Please confirm your participation in this “FAITH-BASED COLLABORATIVE” by calling Brunet V. Parker, HCPS Public Information Officer, at 252-358-8498. Looking forward to seeing you there! *** Please note this meeting is only for Pastors and Ministers.
