The NCC Vo-Tech School District is pleased to announce that Jacqueline Hawkes has been appointed by the NCC Vo-Tech Board of Education as the new supervisor for the Delaware Skills Center, succeeding Michael Mulrooney, who retired in July.

Mrs. Hawkes joined the Delaware Skills Center staff as a training specialist in 2016, working directly with students, instructors, employers and the Department of Labor to assure student success and employment placement. Prior to that, she served as an employment service specialist and case manager with Goodwill Staffing. She also had a 25-year career with the News Journal as a sales and advertising executive.

“I look forward to continuing the mission of Delaware Skills Center (DSC) by delivering educational and Skills Training Programs that opens doors for individuals who are looking for rewarding careers,” said Mrs. Hawkes. “My goal is to provide flexible training programs and a learning environment that fit the needs of those who must work while attending classes to improve their education and skill set, all in order to improve their employment opportunities.”

The Delaware Skills Center, located in New Castle, is a vocational technical training center which offers certificate programs in health careers, constructions trades, and IT for unemployed and underemployed adults.

“As the DSC Supervisor, Mrs. Hawkes is responsible for instructional leadership, facility operations, and management of our outstanding programs,” said Annemarie Linden, Director of Adult Education for the NCC Vo-Tech School District. “I am confident that she not only is committed to our mission, but also possesses the skills necessary to ensure DSC’s tradition of providing excellent training opportunities for adult students will endure well into the future.”

Mrs. Hawkes, a Delaware native, earned both a Bachelor of Science degree in Behavioral Science and a Master’s degree in Human Services Administration from Wilmington University.

New Castle County, in partnership with the State of Delaware and the Delaware Emergency Management Agency, is offering free COVID-19 testing at various sites around the county. To see test site locations and dates, visit:

The tests are free, easy, open to the public, and painless. You do not have to register ahead, but if you do it will cut down on the time spent in line. The tests are self-administered oral swabs, provided by Curative. Participants swab the inside of their mouth, drop the swab into the tube, and drop off the package on their way out of the parking lot. The whole process takes less than 10 minutes, and even less if subjects are pre-registered. Participants do not need to have symptoms to receive the test. Test results are expected back to participants in 24-48 hours via email.

To pre-register for any of the testing sites in Delaware, guests can visit

St. Georges Technical High School Principal Shanta Reynolds has been selected as Delaware’s Secondary School Principal of the Year by the Delaware Association of School Principals. He will represent Delaware in this year’s National Principal of the Year awards program and will participate in the national Principal’s Institute held each year in Washington, DC.

Reynolds has been principal of St. Georges since 2012, where he previously served as an assistant principal. He began his education career as a Social Studies teacher at Delcastle Technical High School in 2000, and was named the school’s Teacher of the Year in 2005. That same year, he was also named Delaware Social Studies Teacher of the Year. Reynolds then moved to the position of Social Studies specialist for the NCC Vo-Tech School District, where he served for four years before being named an assistant principal at St. Georges. The following year, he moved to Howard High School of Technology as an assistant principal for two years before returning to St. Georges as principal.

He earned his bachelor’s degree from the University of Maryland, Eastern Shore, and his masters and doctorate degrees from the University of Delaware.

“Dr. Reynolds is the epitome of an instructional leader,” said NCC Vo-Tech Superintendent Joseph Jones. “With his ability to fuse high standards with support and care for students, he has built an infrastructure of academic excellence where both students and teachers thrive – a hallmark of his tenure as principal. Our school district is proud to have his accomplishments recognized among his fellow educators.”

“It is a privilege to be selected to represent the hardworking school administrators in our state,” said Reynolds. “If you ask any administrator, they will tell you that the work we do is contingent on having a strong team. I am most fortunate to work with educators who are passionate about ensuring all students are learning and growing every day, and fortunate to work with a school community that believes in the St. Georges Way of preparing students to be career and college ready.”

Reynolds resides in Middletown with his wife, Dr. Kalia Reynolds, and two children.

Please read the 2-page message from NCC Vo-Tech Superintendent Dr. Joseph Jones following this announcement:

Today Governor Carney announced that students will not be returning to school on May 18th as originally hoped. Due to the continuing COVID health crisis, school buildings will remain closed through the end of this school year. Students will continue to engage in remote learning following their own district- and charter-designed plans, which include individual closing dates for the ’19-’20 school year.

The Delaware Department of Education will convene a team of stakeholders to collaboratively plan for the remainder of this school year, assess transition, and then continue to adjust and transform practices for the return to school for the ’20-’21 school year once public health officials determine it is safe to return.
