  • Neale Bayly speaks to Leadership class

    “I invent my life,” quoted by Neale Bayly who recently came to UCEC and spoke to Mrs. Bell’s Leadership class about an upcoming school-wide fundraiser they will be sponsoring. Mr. Bayly is the founder of Wellspring International Outreach, a charity which focuses on helping abandoned children around the world. Wellspring has done work in Peru, Southern Africa, and is currently working in Ukraine to support a local children's hospital during their time of war. Bayly has a genuine passion for helping others and has been doing so for the past 12-14 years.  Neale says, supporting Ukraine at this time can be characterized as micro-macro, meaning the small should be given the same priority as the large. Therefore, our small school is as important in his efforts to support the children in Ukraine as a large group of people with greater financial resources. As a result, Union County Early College has decided to raise money for this children’s hospital in Ukraine during its fight against Russia, as they are inadequately prepared to treat war-time injuries such as shrapnel wounds, missing limbs, and burns in young children.  We are excited for Neale Bayly to return to UCEC on Sept. 9 and speak to the entire student body in order to kick-off our fundraising for his current mission in Ukraine.

  • Scholarship Recipients

    Two of our 2022 graduates, or Super Seniors in UCEC vernacular, Dominic Done and Jahnia Harrigan, each received a “Student of Success Scholarship,” provided by State of Success, Inc. This scholarship will help light the path of their bright futures. Here is what Jahnia had to say about receiving the award, “I'm so beyond grateful! It was really unexpected, especially because this year has been so hectic, but it was a welcome surprise. I think it made it extra special that there were people I look up to, like my mom, that got to see me accept the award, too! Now I’m just looking forward to putting the scholarship towards my education.” Dominic said this about the scholarship, “Receiving the Student of Success Scholarship came with great surprise and honor; I am very grateful! I’m glad that my service towards improving our community is appreciated and it has encouraged me to continue to appreciate the value that our community has to offer!” UCEC extends its congratulations to Jahnia and Dominic.

  • UCEC Freshman Makes an Impact!

    Mrs. Lashley’s book club gathered 210 books for Promising Pages, a Charlotte-based, non-profit organization. Freshman, Will Ross, took the lead and organized the book drive at UCEC. Will told us he has a family member who donates books every year and that he strives to follow in his footsteps. Will is also interested in collecting books from students in public schools that have a larger population. Promising Pages collects new and gently used books, and donates them to those living in areas around Charlotte where there is a dearth of books. Will and the book club are amazing student leaders and we are proud to support this great cause.

  • Teacher of the Year

    Mrs. Lashley was voted UCEC Teacher of the Year. She was chosen by her fellow teachers who all enjoy working with her. Mrs. Lashley has taught English at UCEC for 7 years, but has also taught at other UCPS schools, and in Florida. She absolutely loves Shakespeare, working with the best faculty/staff, and teaching the best students ever at UCEC. She is a great teacher who educates in such a way that you are left understanding the assignment inside and out. As one of her students shared, “she is one of the best English teachers I have ever had.”

  • Grade Choice Form

    The Grade Choice Form has been sent to students and asks for students and parents to complete to indicate their choice for each course grade (numeric or code) and submit that to the school for processing. Teachers have sent this form with more information to students to help with decision-making.  We stress that it is best for students to access this form on their computer and with their school credentials because the form requires verification of student account. Please let us know at school if you have questions, or would like to discuss options. UCEC Grade Choice Form
