LINCOLNTON, N.C.––Around here, folks were spared the recent wrath of Hurricane Florence.

Lincoln, Gaston and other counties nearby simply had a lot of rain dumped on them. It was rather like an extended summer thunderstorm and no big deal.

But Down East, it was a very different story indeed. New Hanover, Pamlico, Cumberland and other such coastal and eastern counties found themselves deluged in Noah’s Flood, Part Two, and they’re still struggling to recover.

And locally, Lincolnton Middle School is seeking to make a difference. LMS technology education teacher Chad Hull and social studies teacher Angela Johnson are the co-sponsors of a schoolwide effort, involving teachers and students alike, to help eastern North Carolina schools still soaked by the Flo rinse.

As Hull told The Herald on Friday, those interested in helping can make out their donations to Lincolnton Middle. He added that North Carolina Superintendent of Public Instruction Mark Johnson recently e-mailed the state’s public schoolteachers, asking them to help raise money for schools that were affected by Florence. LMS began doing just that some two weeks ago, as Hull noted.

“Lincolnton Middle School is collecting money and school supplies for teachers and students of Holly Shelter Middle School, just outside of Wilmington,” he said. “We wanted to do something to help. So I thought we should choose a middle school from the area that was hardest hit. From there, the choice was easy. Two former LMS teachers live in the area, and both of them teach at Holly Shelter Middle School. I contacted the administrators of the school and asked them if LMS could adopt them, and they were very thankful that we thought of them.”

Hull added that the LMS efforts would continue through Oct. 15. 

“The name of our effort, ‘L-Town Hurricane Helpers,’ isn’t just a reference to Hurricane Florence,” he said. “It’s their school mascot: the Holly Shelter Hurricanes.”

Lincolnton Middle School is located at 2361 Startown Road in Lincolnton. Call the school at (704) 735-1120 for more information on helping schools affected by Florence.
