    The group came out to the school and talked with students about environmental issues, such as wetlands, plants, and why it’s important to be earth conscious.

  • South Brunswick's Pennell named N.C. Principal of the Year

    South Brunswick High School Principal Vann Pennell may have just been named the North Carolina Principal of the Year, but it’s an award he feels belongs not only to him but also to the staff and students.

    “I’m honored and pleased for the school because it is a complete school award. It’s not a ‘me’ award or an ‘I’ award,” he said. “Without all the things the teachers, students and the community have done, there’s no way you can compete for something like that at the state level.”
