CMS Superintendent Crystal Hill

Public education is a timely topic, not with a $2.5 billion bond referendum coming before voters, but as the district fields complaints that it is too large and not sufficiently responsive to North Meck needs.


The Mecklenburg County Commission has approved a $2.5 billion bond package for CMS that will go before voters. The board says the money is needed to add classrooms, replace outdated schools, improve learning conditions and keep students safer in violent times.  Three North Meck schools are due for replacement.

Open forum Q&A

The open forum Newsmakers Q&A includes a full country breakfast. The cost to attend is $15.

Doors open at 7:15 am for networking. The buffet-style breakfast gets under way at 7:30 am.

The Q&A begins at 8 am and concludes at 9 sharp.

RSVP required

Reserve a seat by calling 704-895-1335 with Visa or MasterCard.


The Presenting Sponsor is Christina Stone, with Allen Tate in Cornelius. The Breakfast Sponsors are Coin Genie in Cornelius and Symphony Park in Huntersville. The Coffee Sponsors are Davidson Wealth Management, G Brokerage and James Funeral Home in Huntersville.
