VOTERS SAY YES TO BCS!!!
SCHOOL BOND PASSES!!!
Students in Brunswick County are winners tonight thanks to voter approval of the $152 million school bond.
While... watching the election returns at the Board of Education office, Superintendent Les Tubb expressed gratitude to the citizens of Brunswick County, "The outcome of this election will allow our school system to remain a system of community schools."
Board of Education Chairman Bud Thorsen who is stepping down after 18 years of service and who was on the Board during the 1999 bond election reflected on tonight's results, "This is a great sendoff and has definitely capped my career on the Board."
A special thank you is extended to all of the bond committee volunteers for their countless hours of work to help educate the citizens of Brunswick County about the needs of our schools.
Preliminary work will begin on the bond projects next week!
Graduation is completed for the BCS Class of 2016. I have had the opportunity to attend all 5 this year(approx. 900 students) and have been pleased with each commencement ceremony. Parents, and staff are to be commended for all that these students have achieved. Congratulations Class of 2016. This is a special year for me since 2016 will be my last on the stage honoring graduates after 18 years serving on the BOE.
Brunswick Co. Schools ROCK!
Last night at our meeting my fellow BOE members elected me Chairman. Even though I have served as Chairman in the past, this will be a special year because 2016 will be my last serving on this board. My pledge to my fellow board members, school staff, parents, and esp. students, I will do everything possible to make this a productive, successful, and fun year. This will make Brunswick County Schools stand out among the best in the state. BC schools ROCK.
This is to inform those who may be interested that I will not be seeking re election for another 4 year term on the BOE. It has been an honor to serve BC schools as a member for 18 years. Now it is time for a new face with fresh ideas to take over. I will serve out my term which expires in December 2016. Thanks for all your support over these years. I always have and always will be a advocate and strong supporter of public education, esp. in Brunswick County. BC schools ROCK!!!!
