Good Afternoon! My name is Abdul Pridgen, I will be serving as the SNCAE Region 2 Representative this year. We have been very progressive in region two so far. Winston-Salem State University’s chapter had a blast with the election dorm storm. Our chapter used the dorm storm as a time for bonding with our general body members as well as some of WSSU’s student body. I also had the pleasure to attend President Obama’s speech in Charlotte, NC on November 4th with VIP tickets which was a life changing experience. I ran into some SNCAE members from Bennett College along with their wonderful advisor. WSSU looks forward to a week full of exciting events next week for education week!

Hello, My name is Al Mosley and I am serving as the Region 5 Representative. So far our region has been very busy this year with many exciting events.
Region 5 has been very busy during the month of October. At North Carolina Central University (NCCU), members have been taking advantage of the voting wave. Members have been making sure students that are of age go out to vote. They have been meeting with leaders in our region like Bryan Proffitt, the President of the Durham Educators Association. NCCU is very excited to have planned a march to the polls event with him on November 5th. NCCU also had an amazing meeting with Ms. Lilly Eskelsen-Garcia, NEA President. During the meeting members talked to her about the way education is evolving and the importance of being involved in our professional organization, SNCAE.
At North Carolina State University, we were honored to have NCAE President, Mark Jewell visit. President Jewell spoke with members on the importance of being involved in politics as an educator. He also encouraged members to get out and vote!

Good Evening SNCAE! I hope that all of you are having a wonderful Fall Semester so far. I am very excited to hear about all of the exciting things happening on your campuses. It seems that all of our wonderful chapter leaders are spreading the new knowledge they gained at Fall Leadership Conference to everyone in their chapters. As you go forth with planning and hosting SNCAE events please remember to let your Regional Representative know so that your chapter can be highlighted in our monthly blog!
As you know the 2016 Election Season is in full swing! Early voting has already begun, and I hope that you all have some wonderful events planned to encourage your SNCAE members and campus family to get out and vote! Throughout the next few weeks your State Executive Board Members will be sharing why they vote pro-public education on the SNCAE social media sites. Please feel free to join in with us in an effort to elect pro-public education candidates during this election season.
To kick off this effort, here is a message from our Region 4 representative, Taylor Evans, on why she votes pro-public education.
“My inspiration for teaching is to lead and inspire. Leading by instantly impacting students to help them develop skills they need to compete in a challenging global market. Parents and colleagues will appreciate your work as they see students using these skills in daily life. Inspiring students by going beyond teaching facts and sharing my knowledge with a captivated audience. Teaching them to use their imagination to help bring subjects to life in ways students will always remember. That’s why I’m voting for pro-public education candidates.”
-Taylor Evans (Region 4 Representative)
I hope you all finish this month strong and please remember if you ever need extra support, your State Executive Board is here for you!
Your State President,
Region 7 is doing big things this October and November. North Carolina Wesleyan College is hosting a fundraiser event. The local SNCAE chapter is selling Krispy Kreme doughnuts to raise funds for a special education scholarship. Their goal is to raise 1,000 dollars. The local chapter is also hosting a teacher apprehension walk in November. The entire Nash/Rocky Mount school district is invited to attend and have free food and to walk around the campus. Last year, this was a huge event so the college is expecting an even bigger turn out this year.
The NCAE leaders of region 7 have reached out to the local colleges and universities to donate canned goods and clothing to go towards the families who have lost their homes due to Hurricane Mathew.
Region 7 Representative, Jordan Harrell
