Welcome to Central Cabarrus High School and home of the Vikings. My name is Rachel Brand and I am the Counselor for last names K-P. I am also the Scholarship Chairperson and the Head Men's and Women's Cross Country Coach. The Assitant Principal that is paired with me is Mr. Jason Valentine.
I moved to North Carolina in 2007 from Boulder, Colorado. I have previously worked 5 years in Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools (Mallard Creek High and Rocky River High) and began my career in Cabarrus County here at Central Cabarrus in 2012.
Scholarships have always been my passion and I love helping students find them and I am thrilled to say we had $3.4 million dollars in scholarships in 2013, a record breaking amount!! Our goal in 2014 was $3.6 million and we blew that out of the water with $6 million dollars. This year our goal is set at $7 million. Please help us beat this record and if you have earned a scholarship,make sure to bring it in so I can have a copy (if you earn an Athletic Scholarship, I need to see the "signature" paperwork.
Keeping healthy is my second passion and I am proud to be the Head Men's and Women's Cross Country Coach. My previous experience coaching was with Mallard Creek High School and Rocky River High School. Our team has grown this year and just completed an amazing season. If you are interested in Cross Country please stop by my office in Guidance.
