PHILLIPS MIDDLE SCHOOL STUDENT DIES IN HUNTING ACCIDENT
Phillips Middle School student James Lee Parker was shot and killed in a hunting accident on Friday morning while hunting with his father, uncle and stepbrother in Wake Forest.
Parker was in the seventh grade at Phillips and is described as a major asset to the school.
"James was an example of a model student that all teachers and principals want in their school and classroom; he will be extraordinarily missed at Phillips,” said Principal Donnell Brown.
“This is such a tragic loss," said John Farrelly, Edgecombe County Public Schools superintendent, “Our thoughts and prayers are with the family during this time.”
The Edgecombe County Public Schools crisis team will deploy on Wednesday to support the staff and students at Phillips Middle School.
Phillips Middle School is located at 1407 Battleboro-Leggett Road in Battleboro and currently serves 198 students.
Please call me if you have any questions (252) 314-0285 or (252) 641-2654.

Rep. G.K. Butterfield said eleventh-hour bickering has tempered his optimism for a deal between Democrats and Republicans to avoid the combination of tax increases and across-the-board spending cuts. (More)
On December 25, 2012 the Lord blessed me to wake up and not only to see another day but to see my 50th birthday. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
On January 26, 2013 will be my 26th anniversary (January 26, 1987) at Honeywell Aerospace Company formerly Bendix when I first began working there. On April 1, 1987 my oldest daughter was born Nashonda Lavette Dancy now Nashonda Lavette Sherrod.
In May 2013 my youngest daughter India Matita Dancy will graduate from North Carolina Central University Durham NC majoring in Political Science. It is her desire to become an attorney.
Curmilus Dancy III (CJ Dancy III) baby boy will complete his freshman year at the high school.
I am so proud of all of my babies and I am trusting and believing that one day the Lord will bring us all together but I hope it will be before my dad Curmilus Dancy Sr. expires however I could go before him.
