BILL@upandcomin- gweekly.com. 910-484-6200. Graduates: This edition of Up & Coming Weekly is for you. We want to say congratulations to each one of you and thank Cumberland County Schools Superintendent Dr. Marvin Con- nelley, his administrators and staff, the Cumberland County Board of Education and countless teachers and high school principals who pushed the limits of their imagination and creativity to make sure that graduating seniors were academi- cally prepared to graduate and free to pursue whatever future path they choose. The recent COVID-19 pandemic drastically disrupted their academic acumen. What local education will look like in the future is unknown. One thing you can be sure of is that we have the right people at the helm to steer it in the right direction. Like I said, this edition of U&CW community newspaper is dedicated to all Cumberland County High School 2020 graduates. It was made possible on short notice with the cooperation of Connelly, the coordination efforts of Associ- ate Superintendent of Communications Lindsay Whitley and the diligent and timely response of all 17 CCS high school principals, who provided the information to create this 2020 graduation commemorative edition. We thank them immensely, as we do our business and community sponsors who have made it possible to provide a copy to each graduate. Every Cumberland County high school is showcased with the name of each graduate, along with a personal, heartfelt message from their principal. This is a significant event and accomplishment for our young people and future leaders. Up & Coming Weekly, Fayetteville's community newspaper, is proud to be a part of their once-in-a-lifetime celebration. We are so proud of these young adults and wish them the very best and bright future. Thank you for reading U&CW.
