1: “Once you learn to read, you will be forever free.” - Frederick Douglass | I love Northwest Cabarrus High School, I admire and respect Lynn Rhymer, and any success I have earned, or accolades I have received in this job come as a direct result of the certified/non-certified support staff of Northwest High. It is ,though, my goal to work at the school that my sons will eventually attend. I do not ask for a position to be taken away, rather to place my information on file should an opportunity ever present itself. Thank you in advance for your time. Dana L. Ramseur
