Career and Technical Education

The Integrated Systems Technology Academy of Engineering at Jack Britt High School was fortunate enough to help honor one of their own, Mr. David Crane. Mr. Crane is a former teacher and one of the fundamental driving forces behind the creation of the IST Academy.

The members of the academy already named the scholarship they put together for academy students after him, but on January 16th, 2020 a long time dream was finally achieved when they were able to dedicate his portrait and the scholarship winner plaques outside of the Principles of Technology lab he taught in for so many years.

On November 28, 2019, Thanksgiving Day, Mandy McMillan, her daughter, and entire family volunteered at Highland Presbyterian Church to prepare meals for the less fortunate in the community.  Mandy’s daughter is currently enrolled at Pine Forest Middle School.

E. E. Smith High School and several other Cumberland County school students worked diligently preparing boxes of food.  The selflessness of these young adults who put others before themselves on Thanksgiving Day should make all educators in the Cumberland County school system extremely proud!

On November 12, 2019, the Cumberland County Schools Fire Academy received a most generous gift. The Stoney Point Fire Department donated a 1985 Seagrave fire engine to the Academy.

This donation will allow the Fire Academy students the opportunity to train on a real-world fire apparatus. The Stoney Point Fire Department and the Cumberland County Fire Chiefs Association also replaced all of the gauges, valves, nozzles, and equipment, so that the engine is in top running order. A local company partner, Atlantic Emergency Solutions (AES), is housing the engine for the Academy at its facility off of Country Club Drive.

Thanks to the Stoney Point Fire Department, the Cumberland County Fire Chiefs Association, and AES for being super supporters of the Academy.
