Since the only people who I know for sure regularly read this blog work at NCSL, I will note that Joe* Hackney, the North Carolina House speaker (and future NCSL president), has donated the $10,000 he received from NCSL last year as part of its "excellence in leadership" award to a school:
The money goes to Silk Hope Elementary School in Chatham County to build an outdoor classroom and dining space, and to purchase a new projector and screen. The school has 440 students and recently celebrated its 100th anniversary.
Hackney, an Orange County Democrat, grew up on a farm near Silk Hope and graduated from its public school in 1963, which then served grades 1-12.
