Rebuilding Hope helped county schools on June 11 to kick off their 31st year of the School of Excellence with two community service projects.
The School of Excellence, begun in 1987, is a five-day leadership program for rising 10th graders who are residents of Vance County and top academic achievers in their classes. Students come from the county’s three high schools, two charter schools, Crossroads Christian School and Kerr-Vance Academy.
For their projects, the students built a stoop and steps at one home and raised and extended a wheelchair ramp at another.On subsequent days, students learned team-building; visited five industries in the county; learned more about Vance-Granville Community College, visited local government and law enforcement offices and toured McGregor Hall; and, at the community college, participated in a closing ceremony.
