Our transportation staff is responsible for the maintenance of school buses, activity buses and school staff vehicles. They are also responsible for scheduling bus routes and maintaining safety records for the fleet. This year, our staff was recognized by the NC Department of Public Instruction for having the safest fleet in the Central Region of North Carolina and we ranked #1 in the entire state for the 2016-2017 school year.

Each year, the transportation staff votes for one of their peers to be recognized for outstanding service. This year’s winner, Jeremy Miller, has been with DCS for almost 15 years. He currently serves as a Level III Mechanic performing major repairs, inspections and preventative maintenance on fleet vehicles and he is a State Certified School Bus Inspector.

Jeremy is a self-motivated mechanic and staff leader who always works hard and requires little supervision. He is active in his church and community and has earned great respect from his peers.

Todd Naylor, Director of Transportation, said, "I can always count on him to go the extra mile, doing whatever it takes to complete his work assignments quickly and professionally. I am happy to have him as a team member at the School Bus Garage."
MyFutureNC Launched at DCECHS and DCCC Davie Campus
Tuesday, October 17, was an exciting day as top North Carolina civic, education, and business leaders gathered at the Davidson County Community College Davie Campus to announce and launch a new initiative. Margaret Spellings, President of the NC University System, announced the launch of the MyFutureNC statewide Commission. The MyFutureNC Commission will bring together over 40 top thought leaders from the education, business, philanthropy, faith-based, and nonprofits from across the state to discuss state education and training needs, identify obstacles to meeting those needs, and generate policy recommendations with broad support from stakeholders across the state. Following the announcement and a panel discussion, the Commission visited classrooms at the Davie County Early College High School and talked with students and staff. In addition, they were able to tour the new DCCC enrollment van.

To celebrate Manufacturing Day 2017, Davie County Schools, local businesses, and the Chamber of Commerce partnered to provide a unique opportunity for all eighth grade students in Davie County. Approximately 500 students and staff visited Ashley Furniture, Davie Construction, Davie Medical Center, Davidson County Community College, DEX, Dunlop Aircraft Tyres, Ingersoll Rand, and Pro Refrigeration. Business leaders provided informative tours including examples of how their employees use math, science, technology and communication skills. Students were intrigued with the emphasis on safety, size of the facilities, variety of jobs including the educational requirements for the job, and the machinery used in the day-to-day operation of the businesses. Our students and teachers say, THANK YOU, to everyone who contributed to making this a very positive learning experience.

Davie County Early College High School (DCECHS) was invited to the 2nd Annual Early College Cup Competition this year. They met at Yadkinville Elementary on Saturday, September 23, to compete with Yadkin Early College, Wilkes Early College, and Surry Early College. There were three events that day: Men's and Women's Indoor Soccer and Quiz Bowl. DCECHS entered a Quiz bowl team and a Women's Indoor Soccer Team. The girl's played really well, but lost a close one, 3-2, in a shootout to Yadkin Early College. 

The Quiz Bowl Team competed for the first time and won the championship! They lost the first match and then came from the losing bracket to beat Surry, Wilkes, and Yadkin twice to win the Championship in a double elimination tournament.

Principal Denise Absher said, "I'm so proud of our students and their hard work and courage to get out of their comfort zone and complete with other Early Colleges. We look forward to the next competition in January with Men's and Women's Basketball and a Math Counts Competition, and then in April with Ultimate Frisbee, Chess, and Co-Ed Volleyball!!"
