NC State University wins $4.7 million grant to expand the North East Leadership Academy (NELA) at the Gateway Technology Center.
The grant, from the U.S. Department of Education, will be used to expand its efforts to train principals and assistant principals for hard-to-staff school districts in the northeastern region of the state.
"NELA allows a district like ours in eastern North Carolina to build leadership capacity," said Dr. Anthony Jackson, superintendent of Nash-Rocky Mount Public Schools. "We're the winners from expansion of a great program model."
Principals like Yolanda Wiggins, who leads Winstead Avenue Elementary in Rocky Mount, got their start through NC State’s North East Leadership Program, which will expand with a $4.7 million federal grant.
