SOUTH CAROLINA (WMBF) – Governor Nikki Haley issued a statewide proclamation on Thursday, designating May as "Teacher Appreciation Month" across South Carolina.
"When I think of a good teacher, it's someone who shaped you as a person," Gov. Haley said. "Someone who shapes our children to the point that they find that inner confidence and that inner strength that takes them into a job where they are constantly challenged."
The proclamation document states, "The 2013 observance of Teacher Appreciation Month offers an opportunity to acknowledge teachers and the important role they play in shaping the future of our state."
