If you are interested and can serve as a proctor during any of those days, please contact Mrs. April Norton at 429-2800 to sign up for whichever day or days you are available.  Parents and guardians of seniors can earn one graduation ticket for every two days of proctoring. So please call the school and sign up as soon as possible.

Anyone interested in proctoring or volunteering at the school should submit their volunteer form on the Cumberland county website.  The process usually takes up to a week after submitting your application, so make sure you apply early!  The Cumberland county website is located at ccs.k12.nc.us
