With a little help from Communities in Schools, the Goldsboro High School family came together Friday morning to celebrate its leader — and birthday girl — Marcia Manning.
But staying true to form, GHS’ principal did not use the spotlight to honor herself — opting, instead, to laud the men and women who turned out to start her special day on a high note.
Mrs. Manning talked about the quality of instruction teachers have been providing to the school’s student body so far this year, and how excited the teenagers were about their classes and extracurricular activities. And she applauded the staff for its commitment to helping every Cougar in the pride set goals for life after high school.
Not a bad way to end Week Five. Happy birthday, boss!
