State Superintendent Mark Johnson Announces $10 Million in School Construction Grant to Hoke County
North Carolina Superintendent Mark Johnson has announced that $55 million in grant funds from the Needs-Based Public School Capital Fund will be awarded this year to school districts in Edenton-Chowan, Hoke, Robeson, and Wayne counties. The grant awards will allow for construction of new school buildings in these economically distressed areas.
“This is the fourth year these funds have been made available to benefit our students and educators who have had to deal with outdated facilities,” Johnson said. “These grants will help address our state’s need to replace old, outdated schools with better learning environments. “
Hoke County: $10 million to build the SandHoke School of Engineering. This will be a state-of-the-art facility that will include 27 classrooms/labs that will support applied studies in the field of engineering and be located on the Hoke County campus of Sandhills Community College ($28.19 million total project cost). It will also relieve overcrowding at other facilities.
“On behalf of Hoke County Schools, we thank State Superintendent Johnson for selecting our Needs-Based Public School Capital Fund 2020 Grant Application to be funded. In partnership with Sandhills Community College and Hoke County Board of Commissioners, we plan to build SandHoke School of Engineering which will offer the students of Hoke County tremendous opportunities. The SandHoke School of Engineering will provide additional college pathways for students pursuing an Associate in Applied Science degree, and will also address the issue of equity by focusing efforts on encouraging our female students to pursue careers in Engineering and Computer Science. Additionally, this school will allow Hoke County Schools to address the growth of our student population while saving capital funds for future school construction projects.”

HOKE COUNTY KINDERGARTEN STUDENT IS MAKING A DIFFERENCE BY CREATING PRAYER ROCKS
By David Ivey, Spectrum News
HOKE COUNTY, N.C. -- Kameron Maynor is just 6 years old, and he’s determined to try and help people. So with the help of his family, he’s creating a business called "KP Rocks" or "Kameron’s Prayer Rocks".
Customers send in requests for an individual rock, then Kameron decorates it with special words or paints the customer’s name on it. After making it customized for that person, the 6-year-old then says a prayer over the rock as he holds it in his hands- a specific prayer for a specific person.
His parents tell us that since starting his business in December of last year, nearly 300 people have become customers. They tell us their family has a long tradition of faith and that was the foundation to begin this.
Another motivation was to help people as they confront the COVID-19 pandemic. Kameron has created special rocks and prayers for essential workers like those in healthcare, along wth police and firefighters.
