New Principal for Everetts Elementary STEM Academy

  •                                                 Mr. Medicuss Riddick                                             

    Hello Everetts Elementary Stem Academy students, teachers, parents, and community!

    My name is Medicus Riddick and it is with great excitement and anticipation that I begin to serve in the role of principal here at Everetts Elementary Stem Academy. I fully recognize the importance of all that has been entrusted to myself, the administrative team, the teachers, staff, and support personnel. I am humbled and grateful for this opportunity.

    I believe that all children are uniquely gifted and are capable, of achieving successes far beyond what they can imagine. It is our responsibility as educators to pull out of them the greatness hidden inside and then help open and shape their minds to the endless possibilities that await them. I operate by three criteria:

    1.  Dignity: All people deserve to be treated with dignity.

     2. Respect: All people deserve to be respected; and

    3. Professionalism: All people deserve to be treated with professionalism.

    Truly I am looking forward to building a strong home-school partnership as we embark on the 2018-2019 school year. Remember always: GO TIGERS!

  • Message from the Office of Superintendent Dr. Eric L. Cunningham

    Approximately thirteen years ago, one hundred and five students started a journey that would end with the familiar culminating experience, high school graduation. On Wednesday, May 22nd, a beautiful commencement ceremony for Northwest Halifax Collegiate and Tech Academy was filled with musical talent and special awards for graduates who demonstrated academic prowess. Students with substantive grade point averages earned high-ranking positions such as valedictorian and salutatorian; such accolades belong to the recipients forever.

    Graduation should be cherished as an event wherein individuals respect the journey endured by our scholars. It should be immune from destructive behaviors that will bring about marks of embarrassment in the minds of our youth.

    Mothers, Fathers, Grandparents and young children should be able to celebrate together without worrying about violence brought into the camp by unruly individuals. Instead of the joy that should accompany such a wonderful occasion, for the rest of their lives, these graduates will associate the ONLY high school graduation they will ever have, with the events that took place on Wednesday, May 22, 2019.

    The ceremony was beautiful and the message delivered was meant to inspire scholars to make wise decisions about the future, a future existing slightly beyond the exit doors of the venue. It is unfortunate that altercations erupted by people in attendance at the ceremony interrupted this special occasion and turned it into a mockery that was shameful to our families and community.

    We will rise above this ordeal and continue our quest to chart a new course. Halifax County Schools responded to the threat to ensure the safety of our students, staff and community. I would like to thank our first responders, the parents and staff who assisted in restoring order. Our collective efforts demonstrated that we are not going to tolerate this type of disrespect anymore. Thank you for not losing faith in Halifax County Schools. #HalifaxRise
