Mr. Keonte' Edmonds and Ms. Dawn Holt took twenty four Central Middle School students and nine parent/staff chaperones to New York City. Students were well behaved, represented themselves and school well, and followed directions in the "big city" despite the weather. The trip was March 28-30, where students visited the Bronx Zoo, toured downtown Manhattan, Central Park, Twin Tower location, the Empire State Building, and various other attractions. Lodging accommodations were at a Marriott hotel and dined in the heart if the city. Last main attraction was a musical on broadway entitled "Wicked". Thanks to all who helped fundraise/donate to this trip to provide a different diverse experience outside of Whiteville, NC.

Central Middle School in Whiteville hosted Panther's player Ben Hartsock as part of its continued partnership with the NFL's Fuel Up to Play 60 campaign.  Central Middle School recently won $15,000 in the program's Make Your Move contest sponsored by Quaker Oats.  Members of the student body created a video posted on YouTube in the national contest a received one of the national prizes. Hartsock spoke to the student body and conducted an interview with CMS Hornet and NC State FUTP60 Ambassador, 8th grader, Lizzie Britt. He toured the campus, signed autographs, and participated in the school's Breakfast Options campaign. CMS Hornets tasted breakfast smoothies, fruit kabobs, viewed a video on the importance of breakfast, tried their hands at yoga and Zumba for Kids, photography, and tag football.  
Britt, along with North Carolina's Fuel Up to Play 60 advisor, Joy Rector spent three days this summer at Panther Stadium learning about the program during the National Convention. FUTP60 encourages students to fuel up with a good breakfast including chocolate milk and other dairy items and then use 60 minutes of their day to be active in some manner. Lizzie has since spent a Saturday morning joined by Hartsock, and CMS FUTP60 Advisor Mandy Smith at the NCPTA Conference in a panel discussion featuring young leaders and community involvement.
