Charlotte NC- Three Big Wins for the City

December 10th, 2009 Listed Under: Everything Else, Living Here

CMS Tops the Nation in 4th Grade Urban School Performance,

Wells Fargo Gives $6M in Year End Charitable Contributions

The Nations Report Card, NAEP, or National Assessment of Educational Progress, is a nation wide study of 4th and 8th grade students in 18 urban school districts. This interim report released yesterday, or TUDA, indicated that CMS 4th graders were at the top in math of the 18 cities, that they scored above average national mathematics scores in 4th and 8th grade.  Another win for  Charmeck Schools Superintendent Peter Gorman.   State  Department of Education release.

Wells Fargo made their presence known in Charlotte, surprising the recession-starved non-profit community with $6Million in grants Tuesday. In a year where there weren’t enough dollars to go around to Charlotte’s non-profits, this was happy news, dance in the street news… and it was a shot in the arm the whole community needed.

Bank of America announces they would re-pay the Federal Government TARP $45 Billion, including interest, before years end. Good news for Bank stock, and good news in the search for a CEO replacement.

These are powerful statements about Charlotte’ s future. I’ll write more in the future
