BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — Gov. Bev Perdue will visit Belville Elementary School near Leland today. Communities in Schools of Brunswick County says the governor will be at the school around 3:30 p.m. to visit its After School program.

The governor’s press office says she and her cabinet secretaries will spend the next seven days showing how “Education Works” by visiting classrooms in public schools and community colleges around the state and talking to teachers, students and local leaders about the importance of education in our economic recovery.

“We celebrate our teachers because they are the men and women responsible for preparing our children in a competitive global economy – for ensuring that North Carolina’s workers remain competitive, sharp, innovative and smart,” Gov. Perdue said in a statement. “I’m travelling the state to keep fighting for our educators and our education system at every level. The foundation we build for our future is too important to abandon.”
