It is sad to say the administration denies gang activity. We know that recruitment starts in elementary and is full blown by the time they enter high school. When Mr. Roland T McKoy was Superintendent of Bladen County Schools there was a male figure that the whole community knew and respected. These young people knew that when they saw Mr. Mckoy that things were going to be taken care of and he not only did his administrative job, but he cared for the welfare of the students first. He also knew if the parents and the community worked together that problems that are arising now would not have taken place. If you bring a stranger in your home things are always going to fall apart because he doesn't care for it like you do. Thats what happened when Berry Lewis and the Bladen County Board members did when they went outside of the county to hire some one else. As Long as Mr. McKoy was Superintendent anything looked like it could be gang related was not in effect. Bladen County Board Chairman Berry Lewis, Ophelia Munn, and otherss were responsible for this. Their greatest concern was there own ambition and not the welfare of the children.
