Congratulations also to all of our Perquimans County School Foundation scholarship recipients. There were many Seniors recognized this past Monday night for their outstanding accomplishments over the past four years. The list and pictures of winners can be found on our school Facebook page.

CFNC is happy to present our first series entitled “Representation Matters.” This is a free series of programs offered on April 12, 13, and 26 designed to offer career and college information to Black and African American males. While all ages are invited to attend these, they will have different focuses. Please find the flyers attached (with registration information) and more information below.

April 12 at 2pm: Representation Matters: Career Exploration for Young Black and African American Males. This program will highlight underrepresented careers, and give attendees a chance to talk with Black and African American men working in these careers. Represented on the panel are: logistics, education, veterinary science, music production, and barbering. This would be a great program for high school and college students alike!

April 13 at 10am: Representation Matters: Making Connections on College Campuses for Young Black and African American Males. This program will highlight resources on college campuses, including career resources and cultural centers. This program is open to all, but will have a focus on current college students. We will have panel members from NCSU, UNC Asheville, NCCU, and Cape Fear Community College.

April 26 at 6pm: Representation Matters: Preparing Young Black and African American Males for College. This program is geared towards current high school students, and will have a panel of folks from CFNC, as well as counselors and advisors from various high schools across the state. We’ll discuss preparing for college, and answer all the questions attendees may have!
