Meet Corry Hyde, Community School Coordinator at A.C. Reynolds Middle
We’re excited to welcome the newest addition to both the United Way of Asheville and Buncombe County and A.C. Reynolds Middle community, Corry Hyde. Corry joins us as a native of Shelby, North Carolina, who has called Asheville home for the past eight years. He served as the Program Director for the ‘Changing Together program’ with SPARC Foundation, is actively involved in the work of the Racial Justice Coalition as well as Children First/Communities In School's Success Equation, and has two children in the Reynolds school district.
“I'm excited about implementing the community school strategy at Reynolds Middle School,” he shares. “This is going to be a very unusual school year for our students, and it's important for them to feel as connected as possible to their teachers, school, and community.” This school year, he will be focused on relationship building within the Reynolds Middle School district alongside community partners, including businesses, families, parents, school staff, faith-based organizations in the community, nonprofits, and more. These supportive relationships will help form the Reynolds Resource Team, a space for the school and community to check in, provide feedback, and help direct the Community School strategy needed to support our young Rockets and their families within the district.
