for ACT College and Career Readiness Campaign Awards

Isaac M. Bear Early College High School (IBECHS) has been selected as North Carolina’s winner for the ACT College and Career Readiness Campaign in the high school division. Only one student, one high school, one community college, and one employer was selected from North Carolina. IBECHS will be recognized at the State Board of Education meeting on April 2, 2015, and will go on compete with winners from other states for national honors.

“I am so proud of our staff, our students, and our school family,” said Principal Philip Sutton. “The staff work so hard to help our students reach their goals for college and hold our students to incredible standards. Congratulations Bearhawks!”

In collaboration with the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction, ACT has continued their annual College and Career Readiness Campaign to celebrate achievement and create awareness around the goal of college and career readiness for all. North Carolina is one the states who has been asked to participate in this program. The Celebrating Achievement component of this campaign provides an opportunity to recognize exemplary college and career readiness efforts of one student, one high school, one community college, and one employer from each of the participating states.
