After The N.C. Rural Center lost its funding the support for our programs was no longer available.
As the founder and CEO I am still hoping Lenoir Community College who currently benefit from Historic Tax Credits due to the site being historic, along with the years of our development of the area and bringing viable, model programs, will see the need to partner with our organization and provide space for our continued development and programs for the West Harper street Area. The Snow Hill Colored School is currently vacant due to the need for renovations.

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

  1. What is the organization aiming to accomplish?
    To renovate the Snow Hill Colored School as a Historic structure of the African American Community to promote self worth, pride in culture, self worth and heritage. Complete the Nomination of the Historic District and bring meaningful programs and cultural events to our region as we make an economic impact within the Low to Moderate Income Target Area of Snow Hill, N.C. and surrounding areas. To work with our local governmental entities, schools and Lenoir Community College (current owner of the Historic sites) to promote the value, history and work.
  2. What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?
    We have made many requests to partner and will continue to do so.

    Will reestablish
  3. What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?
    After over 20 years of experience in the Non profit arena, Economic Development and Neighborhood Revitalization we believe our capabilities are great. We want to garner the attention of a younger group for the purpose of fresh ideas, energy, sustainability and transition
  4. How will they know if they are making progress?
    A strong Board of Directors
    Strong and Sound Fiscal Management
    Funders
    Partnerships with our local governmental entities, schools and Lenoir Community College
  5. What have and haven't they accomplished so far?
    Partnership with Lenoir Community College to share in our goals and vision, they partnered with us to obtain funding from the Lowe's Foundation for the renovation of the roof and windows of the Snow Hill Colored School, but the partnership did not last beyond that.
    The Town of Snow Hill rededicated the Rosenwald Memorial (South Greene High School) Ball field to commemorate their building of bathroom facilities but did not recognize nor partner to include the overall efforts that led to the Saving, Nomination, Revitalization undertaken by our organization.
    We have a lot to accomplish but are confident it will be done

BIO

The organization was founded in 1999 in Snow Hill, N.C. after Hurricane Floyd, the project started as the save the South Greene School project because after the Flood of 1999 pertinent buildings to and within the African-American Community were being demolished including buildings located at the old South Greene High School facility (A Rosenwald School). The effort was later named the Rosenwald Center for Cultural Enrichment after finding out the school was a Rosenwald School. We obtained National Register Nomination for the School, the adjacent Ballfield and was seeking the first African American Historic District in our region. The District would encompass the Low to Moderate Income Target Area of West Harper Street.
