More than a hundred runners came out this morning in Statesville to support local schools at the Tarheel Realty II Back to School 5K and Fun Run. Iredell-Statesville Schools superintendent Brady Johnson was there to start the race, where registrants ran in support of a local school of their choice.

Our Schools First handed out materials, car magnets, and stickers, and we appreciate the overwhelming support of runners and their fans this morning. Together, we will put our schools first and pass these bonds November 4!
