North Carolina leads the country with more than 22,600 National Board Certified teachers. Lee County just added six more in a single year. “It's meant to be a distinction. It's nationally recognized,” said Patricia Coldren, the National Board district coordinator for Lee County Schools. “Having six in one year is a big deal. It's normally between zero and two, and two had been a high number for us.” These six now give Lee County Schools a total of 46 National Board Certified teachers.

As seniors returned to class after a well-deserved holiday break, they were faced with a startling reality. After 13 or more years of formal learning, their initial journey is almost over. Only one semester remains before they take their next big step in life. The good news is that their work is about to pay off, and not only with the high school diploma everyone their age has been seeking. Nearly all will graduate with something more — distinctions that give them a leg up in college or work. That’s thanks to “More Than a Diploma,” a Lee County Schools initiative helping students leave high school with college credit, nationally recognized career certifications and other widely recognized academic distinctions.
