OSHR to donate school supplies to Thomasville City Schools Event in support of the Governor’s School Supply Drive

Sep 25, 2023

State Human Resources Director Barbara Gibson will visit Thomasville Primary School at 10:30 a.m. on September 26 to donate school supplies for Thomasville City Schools. Thomasville City Schools, a small school district outside of High Point, serves just over 2,000 students, according to the district’s website.

Employees from the North Carolina Office of State Human Resources collected 32 boxes of requested school supplies to donate to Thomasville City Schools. Supplies included spiral notebooks, paper, crayons, pencils, cleaning supplies, facial tissues and other needed items.

“With over 25 percent of our state employees being eligible to retire with full benefits within the next five years, we are looking to the future generation now more than ever to pick up where the older generations left off,” said Director Gibson. “We are honored to help support the academic journeys of Thomasville students and the hardworking, dedicated educators that are leading these students on their voyage to furthered education.”

Following a tour of the facility with Thomasville City Schools leadership and Thomasville Primary School Principal Jennifer Tallant, Director Gibson will visit with and read a book to a class of second-grade students.
