Bully Pulpit

The term "bully pulpit" stems from President Theodore Roosevelt's reference to the White House as a "bully pulpit," meaning a terrific platform from which to persuasively advocate an agenda. Roosevelt often used the word "bully" as an adjective meaning superb/wonderful. The Bully Pulpit features news, reasoned discourse, opinion and some humor.

County, school system eager to address facility needs

(The Stokes News) - The week has been busy for members of two county boards as they work toward one common goal; meeting the facility needs of Stokes’s students.

The Stokes County Board of Education met in a work session last Tuesday to prepare for a joint meeting with the county commissioners, which was held last Wednesday at Germanton Elementary School’s Professional Learning Center.

School and county officials seem to agree on the top two construction needs in the county and are taking the next steps to move toward meeting those needs; a new elementary school in the West district and addressing safety concerns at Nancy Reynolds Elementary School.
