A message from Dr. Michael Sasscer:

After careful consideration of the input received from community sessions, online surveys, and choices made by over 850 citizens for their design preference, the Edenton-Chowan Schools’ Board of Education is excited to announce their unanimous decision to replace the existing John A. Holmes High School with a gorgeous facility that, architecturally, will be a combination of Story 1 and Story 3. This decision blends elements of both stories into a single design that is rooted in the Edenton-Chowan community’s rich history while looking towards the future!

The Board would like to express their sincere appreciation to our citizens and community leaders for their investment, voice and vision for the new home of our Aces! Thank you to the Town of Edenton and Destination Downtown Edenton, Inc. for presenting Resolutions of Appreciation and Support for the Planning and Design of the New John A. Holmes High School.

“Be it resolved that the Town of Edenton Council and the Destination Downtown Edenton Board of Directors expresses appreciation to the Edenton-Chowan Board of Education for the leadership in assuring that citizens’ opinions have been heard and for the thoughtful designs put forth by LS3P; and be it further resolved that the Edenton Town Council instills trust in the Board of Education to select the design that will be put forward that we will all be proud of and will be representative of our community.”
