C-SPAN's "100 Schools, 100 Days" Tour To Eastern Carolina

"100 Days, 100 Schools."

That's the mission of the C-SPAN Civics Bus, and Eastern Carolina is on the schedule.

C-SPAN announced its 45-foot mobile production studio and demonstration center will travel to Rocky Mount and Greenville,
making stops at Rocky Mount High School, Northern Nash High School,
South Central High School and JH Rose High School.

The bus is visiting 100 schools during the President's first 100 days in office.
