Proud Moment: Seven ABSS students signed agreements tonight to begin the Career Accelerator Program (CAP) at Alamance Community College. The students will earn their associate degrees from ACC and work full-time as apprentices. All tuition, books, and fees for the degree program will be covered by their employer allowing them to graduate debt-free in addition to earning specialized certifications. Several of our former students also graduated tonight from the program. CAP is a partnership between ACC, ABSS, and more than a dozen industries across Alamance County. #StudentCenteredFutureFocused

🎶 Congratulations to Eastlawn Elementary teacher, Pablo Salamanca! Mr. Salamanca received a Music Educator Award from the North Carolina Symphony. The North Carolina Symphony Musicians Award honors emerging music educators with fewer than 10 years of teaching experience in recognition of the fact that each one of the musicians in the NC Symphony have been influenced by excellent music teachers.
