On October 9, 2017, Cumberland Seniors Brandon Caban, Muhammed Fulani, Ty’shon Scott, Jonathan Langhorne, Matthew Thompson, and Davidrick Brooks were recognized by the Cumberland School Board for participating in the Call Me Mister program at Longwood University. This free six-day program was led by Dr. Maurice Carter, who was assisted by two Cumberland High School graduates, Bryant Winbush and DelMonté Langhorne. These graduates served as mentors for the high school students who attended the program.
The Call Me MISTER program is a national teacher leadership program that not only prepares young men for a successful career as an elementary or secondary teacher, but also provides them with resources that will place them in a position where they can effectively impact the lives of children.
