Hurricane Florence

Hurricane Florence Recovery 


A historic storm has devastated parts of North Carolina. In response, a historic bipartisan coalition of current and former state education leaders is launching Florence Aid to Students and Teachers (FAST NC), an effort to help North Carolina’s public schools as students and educators struggle to return to normal.

FAST NC will work with local superintendents, charter school directors, and statewide associations to identify needs and direct funding from the foundation. The steering committee will make decisions about funding requests submitted from educators and administrators across the state that have the approval of the local superintendent or charter school director.

The steering committee for FAST NC is:

  • June Atkinson, former State Superintendent

  • Eric Davis, State Board of Education Chairman

  • Henry Johnson, former U.S. Assistant Secretary of Education and former Mississippi State Superintendent

  • Mark Johnson, State Superintendent

  • Phil Kirk, former State Board of Education Chairman

  • Mike Ward, former State Superintendent​


Citizens, businesses and other organizations are encouraged to visit to find out more.
