Controversy sparked between neighbor schools
By Haley Dupree and Dallyne Gardner

Recently Neuse Charter School was turned down by Smithfield-Selma High School.  

NCS asked if it could send students to attend SSS’s upcoming college fair, and principal Michael Taylor of SSS said no. 

Many were disappointed by that decision, because Neuse Charter is a smaller school and was unable to host its own college fairs and visits. Many at Neuse Charter thought that because of that, it would make sense for NCS students to attend college events being held at SSS. 

SSS Michael Taylor, recently told reporters with the Smithfield Herald that he did not want the college fair to become too crowded.

Neuse high school principal Joel Erby said that if he had been in Taylor's position he "would have [made] provisions and try to come up with solutions to the issue.”  

Recently SSS has invited NCS to send students to another college fair.
