CTE Advanced Studies and Foods 1 students, taught by Evan Ferguson, prepared healthy snacks for East Carteret High School students impacted by Hurricane Florence. Lee Robinson’s General Store donated a case of bananas, which gave the class inspiration to make homemade banana bread and banana pumpkin bread. Ferguson reached out to Conner’s Supermarket who gave a generous donation of another case of bananas and the bread ingredients.

“We have an amazing, generous community,” said Ferguson. “Anytime we have a need, the community finds a way to fulfill it.”
