BASES 2023 

BASES Award Winners

Onslow County Schools hosted the 2023 BASES reception on Friday, October 6, and it was certainly a day of celebration!   

BASES – Businesses Assisting Schools in Educating Students – is a program designed to join businesses, community organizations and schools together as a cohesive network in the education of children. 

During the 2022-2023 school year, OCS BASES coordinators reported more than $385,000 in donations and 2,400 hours of volunteer service given across the district from hundreds of community partners. This year, OCS was proud to give awards to 143 businesses and organizations from Onslow County and beyond.  

Thank you to all who attended this year’s BASES reception, and all those in our community who support our schools each day!
