Princeville Elementary Celebrates Town’s Birthday

Princeville, NC – Students at Princeville Elementary School recently had the opportunity to honor their town’s rich heritage with a special ceremony held at the school. The town of Princeville is observing its 130th birthday during the month of February and has planned a series of artistic, cultural, and educational programs in celebration of this milestone event.

The program opened with the presentation of colors and a flag ceremony by North Edgecombe High School’s JROTC Cadets. Princeville community leaders Dr. Glenda Knight and Delores Porter offered words of proclamation to the students. The ceremony closed with the singing of “Happy Birthday,” led by kindergarten teacher, Pamela Richardson.

“Princeville is the best town to live in. I had fun celebrating my town’s birthday,” said Kahrie Flowers, a 3rd grade student in Mrs. Gay Norville’s class.

Annette Walker, Princeville Elementary Principal, was excited to share this experience with her students. “My goal for our school is to be a part of the Princeville community. We recognize the rich history of the town and the part it plays in the lives of our students,” stated Walker.
