MCBEP and Local Businesses Welcome New Teachers to Mecklenburg County:

Are you looking for a chance to educate new people to the area about your business? Then here is the perfect opportunity. The Mecklenburg County Business Educaiton Partnership will host its annual New Teacher Welcome Banquet on August 6, 2014 at the Estes Center in Chase City, VA. We are seeking businesses to sponsor 40-45 new teachers, principals, and administrators to Mecklenburg County Public Schools for a social and dinner.

The purpose of this program is to help these new teachers become familiar with local people and businesses who are supportive and are interested in education and a quality workforce in Mecklenburg County. By taking part in this event, businesses have the opportunity to make new friends, attract new customers, assist newcomers in locating pertinent needs in order to relocate to Mecklenburg County, an d show thier support for education. The cost to sponsor a new teacher is $50. This sponsorship includes dinner for one business sponsor and one new teacher. If you would like to sponsor an additional teacher, the cost will be $25. We encourage business sponsors to attend so they can get to know the new teachers but sponsorship donations are accepted to help cover the cost of this event in lieu of attendance.

We will also present each new teacher with a gift bag so we are asking businesses to donate items for those bags. When the newcomers view and use these items they will think of your business. Please drop off items at your local Bnechmark Bank in Chase City, South Hill, or Clarksville no later than August 1st. We greatly appreciate donations even if your business cannot sponsor a teacher.
