People often ask how the spaces in The Center were named. One goal we had when designing The Center was that it should be a place of honor: it honors Kathy Taft, it honors educators in Pitt County Schools, and it honors the State of North Carolina. Room and space names are intended to acknowledge some of the unique and important characteristics and contributions of Pitt County to our state and of North Carolina to our nation. Below read about how we have tried to acknowledge everything from the ocean to the mountains, to important historical events, to the important educational institutions in our state.
