When Pigs Fly

On behalf of our board of directors, committee members and staff, I thank Fayetteville, Cumberland County and those individuals who came from across North Carolina to the third annual When Pigs Fly All-American BBQ Festival on Nov. 12 to support Communities In Schools of Cumberland County.

When Pigs Fly proceeds allow CIS to surround students in Cumberland County Schools with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life. Our mini-grant program supports teachers. Our Yanoff Music Initiative allows every third-grade student to experience the Fayetteville Symphony Orchestra.

Our student support specialists based inside Loyd Auman Elementary School, Brentwood Elementary School, Ireland Drive Middle School, Lake Rim Elementary School and Walker-Spivey Elementary School enable CIS to connect students and their families to basic and critical educational and community-based resources.

The relationship between CIS and Cumberland County Schools creates positive change for youth in our area.

Thank you again for the continued support of When Pigs Fly and Communities In Schools of Cumberland County.

Kennon Jackson, Jr.
Chair of the Board
Communities In Schools (CIS) of Cumberland County
