Earlier this week, the Edgecombe Educational Foundation celebrated our Scholar Teachers, benefactors, and supporters at a luncheon to highlight the progress made over the past five years and the vision forward. In addition to a delicious lunch, the program included remarks from Executive Director Arlane Gordon-Bray, Principal Matt Smith, Foundation Chairwoman Dr. Evelyn Wilson, Superintendent Dr. Andy Bryan, and a dynamic Q&A with Scholar Teacher Jackie Dickens. We currently have five Scholar Teachers working in our schools, and more are in the pipeline. This program is made possible because of generous donors; no donation is too small. To learn more about the Scholar Teachers Program or to give, please contact Arlane Gordon-Bray at agordon-bray@ecps.us.

The Annie and Sallie Ann Wheeler Memorial Scholarship Committee is pleased to announce the 2024 scholarship recipient. Kalyn Johnson was named the winner during an Awards program at North Edgecombe High School (NEHS) on May 16, 2024. Scholarship co-founder Linwood E. Hinton and Lily Wheeler Lowe, mother of scholarship co-founder Jamaal D. Pittman, announced the winner and made special presentations to all the applicants. Hinton and Pittman are NEHS graduates, class of 2008 and 1999, respectively. The scholarship is named in honor of their late great-aunts, Annie and Sallie Ann Wheeler. The two sisters raised three generations of proud NEHS Warriors and devoted their lives to ensuring the children in their family had access to education and opportunities. When reflecting on Johnson's scholarship application, Pittman said, "Kalyn is an exceptional student and already demonstrates a deep desire to be of service to her community in a lasting and meaningful way." Hinton added, "Kalyn is a well-rounded student building a strong foundation for success in her future pursuits." During the NEHS Awards program, Johnson received a souvenir check, noting her $4,000 scholarship award. The one-time, non-renewable award will be paid directly to East Carolina University, where Johnson will attend in the Fall. Four additional scholarship applicants were also recognized by the Wheeler Scholarship Committee. Zykendrick Hyman, Na’Siyah Fountain, Angel Sharpe and Zyrian Pittman were presented with certificates recognizing their impressive applications. Scholarship applicants are required to have a grade point average of at least 2.5 and provide evidence of strength of character and a commitment to helping others. They must also have plans to enroll in a two or four-year college. The scholarship endowment, believed to be the first of its kind established specifically for North Edgecombe students, is awarded annually to a graduating senior. Donors are welcome to support the scholarship fund. Tax-deductible donations can be made at www.WheelerScholarship.com. Photos from the scholarship presentation are attached for your use. If you have any questions or would like any additional information, please contact the Wheeler Scholarship Communications Coordinator at TenikkaSmith@gmail.com or 904-563-2699. About the Scholarship Partners: Jamaal D. Pittman (class of ’99) is an award-winning copy editor and screenwriter who resides in Los Angeles, California. Pittman is a graduate of Morehouse College and the author of The Copy Editor’s Life(Style) Guide. United States Marine Gunnery Sergeant Linwood E. Hinton (class of ’08) is a combat veteran and poet.
