Weldon City Schools extends a proud congratulations to the history-making Weldon High School senior class of 2013!
For the first time in Weldon High School's history, 100% of the Weldon High School senior class applied to 3 or more colleges, and 100% got accepted into at least 1 post secondary institution.
Also for the first time in the school's history, 100% of our senior class completed the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
In celebration of this historical event, Weldon High School conducted a "Decision Day" with the theme of "Signing Day," in which each student had to sign a letter of intent to matriculate into college and do their very best. During the Decision Day event each student was recognized individually and received a pillowcase with their name and future college monogrammed into it. Also, "The 13oss Steppers," the senior step team, stepped at the event, and sung about how they are going to give all of their "hardwork, focus, and studying" to college.
The event was sponsored by the Carolina College Advising Corps, a program through the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill that places recent UNC grads in high schools in underrepresented areas to increase the college matriculation rate, create a college-going culture, and widen the range of schools that students are matriculating into. Please visit carolinacollegeadvisingcorps.unc.edu for more information.

2013 21st Century Summer Program Application
Dr. Bracy recently requested schools to submit a student from each grade level to serve on a Student Advisory for Weldon City Schools. The students had the opportunity to spend time with Dr. Bracy at the local Fairwood Lanes.
The group was joined by Mr. Terence Wyche, Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum and Instruction and Mr. Michael Thompson, Child Nutrition Director. Students and district administrators discussed topics regarding curriculum and nutrition.
Students will meet regularly with Dr. Bracy and designated administrators in the future to ensure that students are involved in the decision making.
