Communities in Schools of Wayne County has a New Name:
Communities Supporting Schools of Wayne County

Visit our new website:  waynecss.org

Communities in Schools of Wayne County is now Communities Supporting Schools of Wayne County. “Our name has changed but our dedication and commitment to the students of Wayne County has not,” says Selena Bennett, Executive Director. “We are transitioning to an autonomous organization in order to focus more of our time, effort and resources on the students we serve,” she said. CSS Wayne will continue to create partnerships between the community and our students that will provide opportunities and the tools necessary to achieve success in school, graduate, and become productive citizens. Jill Cox, Interim CEO of Communities in Schools of North Carolina said, “Wayne County has provided services to students for more than 20 years resulting in life-changing impact. This work will carry on under a new name. Selena and her board were very thoughtful in their approach, assessing their capacity and aligning their work with the needs of their students and the community. Selena will remain a close partner and friend to CIS going forward and we wish she and her board all the best.”
