Co-op’s ‘Back to School’ Power Hour webinar set for Aug. 19

Posted: August 10, 2021 at 9:20 am

North Carolina’s public school system plans to bring students back into the classroom for in-person instruction later this month. Roanoke Electric Co-op will host a special “back-to-school” Power Hour to address what changes are in store for the upcoming school year. The webinar, which is open to the public, is scheduled for 2 p.m., Aug. 19.

“For many students, this will be the first time they will step foot inside a classroom since last year,” said Curtis Wynn, the co-op’s president and CEO. “With the new Delta variant spreading and vaccination rates lagging in the state, there is still plenty of uncertainty about the 2021-22 school year. While many districts are still working out exactly what the return of students will look like, we want to use this platform to address any concerns or questions.”

The featured guest speakers are as follows:

  • Dr. Vanessa Wrenn, NC Department Public Information Chief Information Officer
  • Dr. Barry Williams, superintendent of Gates County Schools
  • Dr. Eric L. Cunningham, superintendent of Halifax County Schools
