NC Secretary of Commerce, Machelle Baker Sanders, visits WHES

West Hoke Elementary had a very special guest stop by Dolphinville. NC Secretary of Commerce, Machelle Baker Sanders, visited the school to deliver school supplies that were collected as a part of Governor Cooper's School Supply Drive. While there, Secretary Sanders had the opportunity to read a rousing rendition of 'The Little Old Lady Who Wasn't Afraid of Anything' to Mrs. Waltner's kindergarten class. She also made time to visit Mr. Grace's 4th-grade social studies class where students have been learning about business and entrepreneurship. She was able to share what she does in her position to encourage business and economic growth in North Carolina.
Thank you Secretary Sanders for your support of West Hoke Elementary, Hoke County Schools, and most importantly, thank you for taking the time to encourage our students to 'follow their dreams'! #OneTeamOneGoal #TeamHoke
