Local Students TOur Dupont to Learn about manufacturing
Ths past Friday, on the annual event known around the country as Manufacturing Day, our local students took a tour of the manufacturing powerhouse located in our own backyard; Dupont. During this time, the students were introduced to the way many items were made and developed, from design to engineering. The local Kinston Sorona plant deals primarily in polymer based textiles that produce less greenhouse gases than other nylon based plants. Students from our local engineering classes and CCP LCC extension casses were among the attendees from South Lenoir. Read more from Kinston.com...

BEULAVILLE | Even in a rivalry game, sportsmanship will shine through.
Midway through the fourth quarter of South Lenoir’s 69-13 loss to East Duplin on Tuesday, Blue Devils’ coach Fred Kennedy called a timeout to set up a play for Walker Howard, a senior with autism who has played on the team throughout high school.
Howard took the handoff and raced 65 yards toward the end zone untouched, setting off a celebration from both benches, along with the fans of the two schools separated by 17 miles.
“It felt good,” Howard said with a smile. “This is just my first time scoring a touchdown. I’ve played for four years with Coach Kennedy.”
Kennedy said he felt the timing was right.
