EHMS students greet former Marine as he walks across the country

East Hoke Middle School students were excited to greet Justin Kuhel as he walked by their school on his 2,700 mile journey across the country.  Kuhel, 25, is a former Marine who served in both Iraq and Afghanistan.  He hopes to raise $100,000 for two veteran charities, as well as offer citizens an opportunity to show their support for the military.  Kuhel began his journey on May 23 in Camp Lejeune and plans to walk 23 miles a day for the next 4.5 months until his journey ends at Camp Pendleton in California.  Kuhel was on Day 6 of his 'March Across America' when he walked by East Hoke Middle School.  Students and staff cheered Kuhel on, eagerly shaking hands and talking photos as drivers on HWY 401 honked their horns in support.  One student yelled from the crowd," You can do it!  We think you can make it!"

Four students from McLauchlin Elementary will participate in the Region Four Summer Institute, “Sustaining Success...Building on Achievement,” hosted by the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction scheduled for this summer.  These students have been selected as the guest speakers, opening the two-day event which ‘provides educators across the state with meaningful professional development that will take them to the next level in READY implementation (Common Core, New Assessments, Educator Effectiveness, Home Base, and more).’  Jamarion McIntosh, Kayleigh Corella, Nailah Quick, and Abdul Hassan (pictured clockwise from the top left corner) are no strangers to oration.  They are dedicated to the craft of public speaking and competed earlier in the year during the district civic oration competition.  Kayleigh Corella placed first in that competition.

Seniors at SandHoke Early College High School took the next step in their lives as they walked across the stage last Friday night.  The class of 52 graduates received their high school diplomas, with 44 of those also receiving an associate’s degree.  Those who did not receive an associate’s degree left the program with transferrable college credits.  The intent is for graduates of the dual-program, offered through a partnership between Hoke County Schools and Sandhills Community College, to complete the program in five years, however, some graduates completed the program in only four years.  Graduate of the Year Zakyree Wallace spoke to the fourth graduating class of SandHoke about life after graduation, encouraging them to “take the reins of our lives and never let go.”

Veronica Sturdivant is the 2014-2015 Teacher of the Year

posted May 27, 2014, 5:11 AM by JODIE BRYANT


Congratulations to Hoke County Schools’ 2014-2015 Teacher of the Year Veronica Sturdivant.  Veronica is completing her second year as a teacher at Hoke County High School where she is a certified math teacher.  Although she officially teaches math, her principal, Roger Edwards, says, “It is obvious when one walks in the room that Veronica teaches much more than math. She is all about providing opportunities for students to engage in the instruction and to take responsibility for their learning.”  

Veronica was born and raised in Morven, North Carolina.  She graduated from Anson High School in 2000.  In 2004, she graduated from UNC-Greensboro with honors and a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics.  After graduation, she returned home to teach at the high school, which she did for seven years.  Before coming to Hoke High, she taught at Montgomery County’s West Middle School for one year.  Veronica has dedicated 10 years of service to the career and life calling of being a teacher and she says she never forgets one important detail, “It doesn’t matter if I stand in front of a class of 20 or sit next to a student of one, the message I relay will always be the same.  It is my job as a teacher to relay the importance of math to every individual in my presence and the impact it will have on their life as a whole.”

The Kenan Fellows Program at NC State University and its partners are pleased to announce its 2014-15 fellowship awards during Teacher Appreciation Week May 5-9.  Fifty-one public school teachers from across the state have been selected as 2014-15 Kenan Fellows.  Two teachers from Hoke County Schools received these awards.  Aticila Mormando of East Hoke Middle School is supported by the National Science Foundation's Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program and will partner with Karen Mantzouris of the Southern Regional Area Health Education Center on a project entitled Noyce: Healthcare Innovation Requires 'Patients' in the Classroom.  Gabrielle Patrick of Sandy Grove Middle School is supported by the National Science Foundation's Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program and will partner  with Hanah Ehrenreich of Sustainable Sandhills on a project entitled Noyce: Clean and Green.  The prestigious fellowship empowers educators to spearhead innovative teaching practices in North Carolina.  Teachers selected as Kenan Fellows remain in their classrooms while completing a year-long fellowship.  The 2014-15 Fellows will spend five weeks of their summer shadowing and learning from local experts in renewable energy, healthcare, pharmaceuticals, agriculture and other science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) disciplines.  Kenan Fellows use this experience to create and implement cutting-edge classroom resources designed to elevate student learning.  “Through our partnerships with industries, institutes of higher education and community organizations, the Kenan Fellows Program provides a remarkable opportunity for teachers to enrich their profession and connect students to real-world practices,” said Elaine Franklin, director.  The 2014-15 Kenan Fellows were selected after a competitive application and interview process.  Fellows receive a tablet donated by Lenovo, leadership training, professional development and a stipend.  They join an elite statewide network of more than 300 Kenan Fellows whom have a track-record of achievement and excellence in education.
