Forsyth’s school bonds approved by wide margin
Forsyth County voters have given a $350 million vote of confidence to Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools and Superintendent Beverly Emory.
With more than 95 percent of the precincts reporting, the school bond proposal has been approved by nearly three-quarters of Forsyth County voters. Voter approval in the referendum paves the way for eight years of building, renovation and expansion in the county’s public schools.
“I am overwhelmed by how supportive this community is,” Emory said Tuesday night. “Sometimes we’re so caught up in the things we need to improve that we don’t stop to appreciate all the good going on.”
That could be good for business, said Joe Crompton, a local contractor, voting for the bonds at Reynolds High School Tuesday.
