The group’s first expo was held in May 2022 with the goal of bringing “education providers and parents under one roof so that parents can learn about the variety of educational options in our county.”
One of the expo’s lead organizers is Caroline Kelly, who grew up in the United Kingdom but whose husband’s family is from Moore County. The couple decided to retire to Moore County in 2012. The Kelly’s have grandchildren who attend Wake County public schools.
