Newton-Conover City Schools dedication to providing an evidence-informed education that prepares students for success in the real world has led it to earn the annual EVERFI Empowered Seal.
Now in its third year, the EVERFI Empowered Seal is a designation awarded to public school districts that have demonstrated an exemplary commitment to comprehensive education strategies on topics such as financial literacy, health, and careers. This is the first time that N-CCS has been awarded the Empowered Seal.
Quote from Superintendent Dr. Aron Gabriel:
“It’s exciting to have our district’s dedication to its students nationally recognized with the EVERFI Empowered Seal. Our educators' work and compassion will have a lasting impact on the lives of our students. Our students will be members of our communities long after they graduate. Our goal is to equip our students with life skills that are transferable into whatever pathway their life journey takes them. We’re thankful for this award and the opportunity for our students to take part in the Empowered Seal Scholarship contest.”
In addition to being recognized nationally for their work, the Empowered Seal provides district students with the opportunity to participate in the Empowered Seal Scholarship contest. Ten students will be selected as winners, with two students winning a $1,000 scholarship and eight students each winning a $500 scholarship. Contests will be held in the fall and spring.
