    Vance County Schools Partners with Perry Memorial Library

    Vance County Schools and the Perry Memorial Library are partnering to support students' ongoing education. We share the belief that a love of books and learning is a strong foundation for student success and we are working together to provide every Vance County Schools student access to books and resources found at their public library. 

    Beginning March 1, 2020, all Vance County Schools students will be able to use their Student ID number to access and borrow public library books and resources. We are calling this initiative StudentAccess. There is additional information available, as well as the opt-out form if you wish for your child to not be included. Follow the hyperlinks below.

    We are excited about this opportunity for our students and the access it opens for them to enrich their knowledge.

    Special Ceremony Honors Accomplishments of Eighth Graders

    Eighth graders for the 2018-2019 school year at Vance County Middle School were recognized for their achievements during a special year-end ceremony held in the school's gymnasium on June 4. 

    Principal Heddie Somerville began the ceremony by welcoming everyone in attendance, including the approximately 350 eighth graders and an audience of about 1,000 family, friends and comunity members. 

    Eighth graders who led the ceremony included: Zephaniah Young and Anayia Harris, who sang "The Star Spangled Banner"; Devine Williams, who served as mistress of ceremonies; Kylie Newhouse and Breanna Kipp, who provided reflections on the school year; Makayla Terry and Isabel Cruz, who offered superlatives for their class; and Daniel Bolanos, who introduced the featured speaker Kimberly Jefferson. 

    Jefferson, who works for Pfizer Pharmaceuticals and is a Vance County native, made remarks to the students and audience during the ceremony. She encouraged all of the students to work hard as they begin their high school careers to be successful and achieve their goals. She talked about her own past as a student going through Vance County Schools and eventually graduating from Northern Vance High School, in the same facility as the middle school today. Jefferson even mentioned her time as a student athlete at Northern Vance and playing basketball games in the same gymnasium. 

    The eighth-grade class at Vance County Middle School for the 2018-2019 school year is the first eighth grade to complete its time at the newly consolidated middle school.
