Mrs. Hannah White VanHalen
My name is Hannah White VanHalen and I was born and raised in rural Johnston County. After graduating college I returned home and purchased family farmland where I presently reside with my three boys. I graduated with a Bachelor's in Sociology from The University of North Carolina at Pembroke before attending East Carolina University where I completed my teaching license. I have been an employee for Johnston County Public Schools for the last six years. I am thrilled to be a member of the Choice Plus team and I look forward to meeting and working with each of you.
A special called session of Johnston County Board of Education has been called for Thursday, July 29 at 5:00 p.m. in the Evander Simpson Building in Smithfield. The open session portions of the meeting and all announcements will be accessible to the public via the livestream available online.

While face masks are still required in all of our indoor facilities, students, staff, and guests of our campuses are no longer required to wear a face covering when outdoors. Students and staff may continue to wear masks when participating in recess or outdoor activities if they choose to do so.
