(February 26, 2010) Charlotte-Mecklenburg School Board member and former Olympic Football Coach Joe White was the featured speaker at the 2010 meeting of the Steele Creek Residents Association last night. Coach White, along with CMS Planning Specialist Dennis LaCaria, discussed outstanding projects approved in the 2007 school bond, including a new elementary school near the Palisades and improvements to the Olympic High School Stadium. However, the county has not yet sold the bonds to fund these projects.

However, the county has not yet sold the bonds to fund these projects.
