School board recognizes students

At their August meeting, the members of the Cumberland School Board recognized students who attended the Truth Empowerment Summit. The summit, which was held at Longwood University and the Moton Museum from July 9-11, was intended to bring students together with teachers, counselors and other community leaders to develop plans for creating a culture of encouragement and kindness. Students gave a presentation to the school board to outline their plans for creating a more positive culture at CUCPS.

Students from CUCPS attending the Summit included the following: Cumberland Middle School: Cole Dalton, Madeline Hartley, Taylor Hughes, Baileigh Meinhard, Celest Mitchell and Valencia Valentin. Cumberland High School: Antonio Allen, Gabriella Baker, Kamirah Brown, Kristin Caleb, Geneva Curtin, Kyle Fant, Caitlin Hartley, Dawn Helton, Devondre Holman, Mariah Paras, La-Teairra Pegram, Shelia Robinson, Vydez Scott and Helena Trent. Students were accompanied by teachers Norma Crenshaw and Anna Wieder.
