Mr. Lewis is a great educator and an exceptional role model for Burgaw Elementary School. It is a slap in the face to know that our society in Pender County still thrives and bears racism as their forefathers did. Why has Pender County fallen so far behind? They choose to pick and process people of their own kind. But when God sends you a man that does his job well and treats all equally you better beware Pender County itís time for a change!
