Many of our Teaching Fellows spent their Spring Breaks studying abroad! Jade Carpenter went to Ireland with our First Year Experience peer educator program. Jordan Bates visited Cameroon, Africa and delivered school supplies to over 3,000 students!
We have a few Teaching Fellows who are also members of the Call Me Mister program here at C of We are so proud of our Freshmen Fellows! They decided that their service project this year would focus on the homeless of Charleston. They planned a percentage night at Chipotle and hosted a talent show to raise money for this effort. They raised well over $1,000 and are now working to distribute supplies to the homeless. C. The Misters visited a local school to read to students. Pictured above is Royce!
Our professional development chair, Katy Templeton, was able to attend a SCEA meeting in Columbia. We are excited for her to share with us all what she learned!
Two of our Sophomore Fellows, Terricka Leverett and Ridge Welch, attended a summit for the Save the Children Action Network. They were able to meet with every single lawmaker in the South Carolina delegation and encourage them to continue to invest in high quality early learning programs such as Head Start. Under the President’s new budget proposal these programs are in grave danger!
