In an article for the The Roanoke-Chowan News-Herald, Cal Bryant covered the story:

“CS Brown STEM Principal Bobbie Jones was thrilled to learn of the news.

‘This is what education is all about; exposing our children to everything that they need in order to be successful in life. This is an amazing accomplishment for our VE program. I’m very proud of all of you and your instructor, Ms. Lee,’ he remarked.”

C.S. Brown’s VE facilitator Daphne Lee added what she enjoys most about the VE program:

“‘What I really enjoy the most about this VE program is tracking how my students start and then how they reach the finish line. I love watching their ideas develop, and since this is a year-long class, I get the opportunity to watch them grow and develop,’ Lee concluded.”
