HUNTERSVILLE – A ceremony was held April 22 honoring Bradley Middle School as one of only five schools in North Carolina this year to receive the National Unified Champions Banner Award.

Following a rigorous review process among thousands of K-12 schools and universities, the NUCB award was granted to just 68 schools nationwide that intentionally promote meaningful social inclusion by bringing together young people with and without intellectual disabilities to lead in the creation of accepting school environments affecting system-wide change.  

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools had two of the five state recipients.

The award is given by the Special Olympics organization and endorsed by the Office of Special Education Programs at the U.S. Department of Education as well as by the National Collegiate Athletic Association and National Federation of State High School Associations among others.
