First Stop- North Carolina!

The maiden voyage on the 2014 #BeyGOOD X STATE collaboration road trip will be to Charlotte, North Carolina. And here’s why.

Charlotte has one of the largest school districts in the country, with a graduation rate of only 56 percent. A little less than a quarter of Charlotte’s children live below the poverty level, and per the 2014 state budget, the state legislature will no longer fund public school enrollment growth.

That’s why STATE is swinging by Bruns Academy this morning to give away some bags and supplies to students. Thanks to our local partner Communities in Schools- Charlotte for helping make it happen!

Stay tuned for updates and pics as we tour the Northeast with #BeyGOOD!
