HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - I had an opportunity this week that forced me to leave this television station for the day and jump into another world.
My day started at 7:30 a.m. and as I walked into my new “office” for the day I was greeted with smiles, compliments and an enthusiasm that was contagious.
I was Principal for the day at Horry County School’s Scholars Academy. Every person in that school, from the staff to the teachers to the students was full of energy, drive and purpose.
And, it became clear very quickly that Principal, Norman McQueen is the reason why.
The students are gifted. The teachers are incredible. The curriculum is intimidating.
Consider This: We are very lucky to have a public school system that is so progressive, positive and focused on the needs and opportunity for each student and employee.
Thank you for inviting me to participate in this program. I encourage every parent and community leader to get more involved in our students’ education. I promise you, it will be as rewarding for you as it is for our kids.
