Westberg And I Assume His Lawyer/s Have Gone And Public Meeting Was Called To Order. Now The Board Is In Closed Session Again.

It appears that the earlier meeting included John Westberg former Principal of SouthWest Edgecombe High School who was moved to North Edgecombe High School as a Dean of Students and I assume his lawyer/s. They have gone.

The public meeting was called to order around 8:20 PM. The board

Item (2) the board approved budget amendments for this year.

Item (3) the board approved the reduction of Principals Assistants from 11 months to 10 months and that will save over $77,000. Teacher assistants from 10 months to 9 months and that will save over $44,000. These changes will take place on July 1, 2011.

Ann Kent read the motion to go in closed session.

So now I am waiting for them to go back into open session.

Stay tuned.

    A 5th grader reported missing Friday afternoon has been located safe and unharmed.

    Edgecombe County School officials reported Donnie Cox, a fifth grader at Bullock School, ran away this afternoon. He was last seen about 2:45, and then found a couple of hours later.

    Officials have not said where he was found.

    Authorities in Edgecombe County are searching for a youngster who ran away from school this afternoon.

    School officials say Donnie Cox is a fifth grader at Bullock School. They say the 5th grader was last seen around 2:45 p.m. after a parent picked him up on Bullock School Road and dropped him off near Rocky Mount Senior High School.

    The child, whom they says is an exceptional student, has run away from school before. There is an active search underway for the student who was last wearing a royal polo shirt and khaki pants.

    Right now we do not have a picture of Donnie Cox.



  2. I find it interesting that nothing was published in the print media in either county, especially Edgecombe, about the young 5th grader leaving school and being picked up by a parent and dropped off near Rocky Mount High School. He was later found and appeared to be OK. It was reported by WITN TV on May 20 that this was not the first time this child has left school. He is an exceptional student which makes it even more strange. Why was this story hidden/not picked up?

    Note: This is my first time hearing about this. I will have to research WITN website. In the meantime care to share anymore info about this incident?

    Thanking you in advance. Curmilus Dancy II – The Political Agitator
