New Hanover County Schools Celebrates National Disability
Awareness Month by Launching Three Public Service Announcements

October is National Disability Employment Awareness month. To celebrate National Disability Employment Awareness month, the New Hanover County Schools Special Education and Related Services Division is launching three public service announcements (PSA). These PSAs are designed to showcase how the district partners with area businesses to assist in preparing high school students with disabilities in transitioning into the community by participating in paid and unpaid internships.

Area industry and foods services such as K&W cafeteria, Walmart, McDonald's, Fenner Drives, and many others welcome NHCS students in these internships and have even offered permanent employment in some cases.

For additional information, contact the Special Education and Related Services Division at (910) 254-4454 or via email
