honoring tradition, building community, educating for tomorrow
- Dear Wilmington Staff, Students, and Families, 

I am honored to serve the Wilmington City School district as your Superintendent.  Wilmington is a special place for me. I believe that Wilmington is about honoring traditions, building community and educating for tomorrow. I have enjoyed my time serving Wilmington as a Middle School teacher,  Middle School principal and High School principal.  Wilmington has proven to be a great place to work and learn.    
Wilmington is about honoring traditions.  Our district values the customs and beliefs that are passed along from generation to generation. We hold sacred the traditions that continue to be a positive source of pride for WCS.  These traditions are passed along by family members, mentors, colleagues, peers, friends, coaches and our neighbors.  They are the symbols of our heritage and represent loyalty.  The school community is about honoring strong traditions while embracing innovation.    

The community is the backbone of every great school.  I am proud to work and live in Wilmington. It is important that we all stay united in providing a quality education in a caring environment for every child.  Wilmington is about respecting the role in sharing the responsibility of building a vibrant community.    

Educating every child so that they are prepared for a bright future is our highest  priority.  The daily decisions we make for our schools will be focused on what is best for our students.  Our work is about providing experiences for our students that will sharpen their minds to be creative thinkers and problem solvers.  Each child holds endless possibilities to what they are able to accomplish.  Wilmington City Schools is dedicated to the education of our students today to provide them the skills they need for tomorrow.   

I am eager and excited to continue to support the students, staff, and parents of the Wilmington City School district.  I am committed to honoring traditions, building community and educating for tomorrow.  

Mrs. McCarty-Stewart
Superintendent Wilmington City Schools
