As part of their Days of Extraordinary Service Events, several Catawba Valley Community College faculty and staff members volunteered their time at South Newton Elementary School on February 27, 2019. During this event, CVCC volunteers assisted South Newton Elementary by helping with the school’s landscaping and by assisting teachers in the classrooms. The landscaping tasks involved spreading mulch and weeding around the campus. Other members of CVCC’s volunteer team assisted in the media center and in classrooms by reading books to students.
The CVCC volunteers who participated included: Dr. Garrett Hinshaw, Renee Neal, Amy Haugh, Brice Melton, Jessica Page, Paula Bell, Jerry Sain, and David Zealy-Wright. Newton-Conover City Schools and South Newton Elementary School is very appreciative of this volunteer work.
