News and Observer WakeEd Blog: Wake Education Partnership rebrands itself as ‘WakeEd’
Make room for two WakeEd’s in Wake County, but please don’t confuse the two.
The Wake Education Partnership announced Monday that it’s rebranding itself as “WakeEd.” As loyal readers of this blog know, we’re also called “WakeEd.”
The rebrand is the latest effort by the WakeEd Partnership, which is backed by the business community to boost the Wake County school system, to try to boost its visibility. Throughout its 32-year history, most Wake County residents have said in surveys that they’ve never heard of the non-profit organization.

“The board of directors is the governing body for Wake Education Partnership. It is primarily made up of members who are often deeply involved in public education and leaders in the business community and community at-large.”
Wake Ed Partnership has changed its name before when Tony Habit was running it. Go rifle through their profile and document filings (ID # 0157059 under Wake Education Partnership) at the NC Secretary of State.
