Good evening, this is Rick Parker, Principal of East Mecklenburg High School calling with our weekly update. Today concludes National American Education Week and we would like to extend a big thank you to everyone who sent in school supplies for our teachers. A congratulation goes out as we celebrate our teachers, Mrs. Morris won a night’s stay for two at the Dunhill in uptown Charlotte and dinner for two at Asbury restaurant for her perfect attendance first quarter! Your thoughtfulness is greatly appreciated. A big congratulations goes out to Madison McClure, as she was named Time Warner’s Scholar Athlete of the week and to our ACE Mentor Program, as they came in second place at the ACE Spotlight on Hunger event at the Blumenthal Performing Arts Center this past Saturday. Thank you Simon Gardon and Julie Hoang for representing East Mecklenburg, great job! It is also, with great pride that we announce East Mecklenburg High School students in Mr. Mariano’s class, once again, won first place in the Duke Energy and the Carolina Panthers Stadium Design contest!
