A Word From the President


I am thrilled and excited to accept the selection as President of the CCC-NCAEOP for the 2019-2020 year. I am ecstatic and I’m looking forward to working with everyone to make the Cumberland County Chapter ‘Succeed with Professionalism.’ As stated by our State President Ms. Sharron James-Bizzell this year, “We are going through Seasons: “Shifting Empowerment and Switching Our Norms.” If you have questions or concerns please feel free to contact me at karendawson@ccs.k12.nc.us or (910) 624-0386, I look forward to assisting as many of you as I can in reaching your goals.

One goal I want to set this year is for more CCC-NCAEOP members to receive their PSP. Applications for the Professional Standards Program (PSP) are due by December 1, 2019. We begin the year in September, my hope is to have 20 people walk across the stage next year to receive their PSP, whether it is a new certification or renewal.
