NEWPORT-Members of the Newport Board of Education, meeting Monday evening at Newport Grammar School, approved several recommendations regarding the expansion of services provided by the NGS Cherokee Clinic.

The six recommendations, according to committee members Michelle Black, Steve Thompson, and Linda Powell, who presented the findings to the board, should expand the clinic's current services to the community and increase its financial stability. "Currently the clinic is losing money," said Thompson, "and we want to keep it open."

Other committee members included board member Charlotte J. Mims, NGS Principal Sandra Burchette, and Deb Murph, who represented Cherokee Health Systems

The clinic, located in NGS, is staffed by a nurse practitioner provided by Cherokee Health Systems. 

Currently the clinic serves NGS students, staff, administration, and their families.
