South Conway Elem. students finally meet mentors from MBHS

MYRTLE BEACH (WMBF) - Seahawk New Tech at Myrtle Beach High School is a program for 9th through 12th graders that empowers those students to learn, lead, and succeed. Those students have been mentoring 4th graders at South Conway Elementary School and Friday, they met for the first time.

“Amazing,” said Hannah Arney, a 4th grader at South Conway Elementary School. “Like high schoolers with a 4th grader!”

“The kids over there are just thrilled to see our kids, when they get their letters, we send them pictures, and we get and send videos,” said Sheri Bordas, organizer of the Seahawk New Tech’s Mentoring for Success program.

Bordas said she wanted to incorporate the kids working with other kids, instead of people always coming to the classrooms.

“Sometimes when it comes from your teacher, it’s not that important. But when it comes from your mentor in tenth grade, it’s a little more important.”

Some of the activities in the mentoring program include the 10th and 11th graders making flash cards to help the 4th graders with reading, letter writing, and teaching just being a stand up person in society.

“They may know how to study, they may know why it’s important to read. We are reinforcing their skills and well as they are reinforcing them themselves. And that’s what’s really important. When they start teaching why, then they are making more sense to themselves.”

    A new court filing from defendants in a case involving the late former Horry County Police detective Allen Large and a defendant identified as “Jane Doe 3” asks the judge for a summary judgement. Those defendants, including former Horry County Police Chief Saundra Rhodes and the supervisors up the chain of command from Large, believe the case shouldn't go before a jury because Jane Doe Three has no case against them.
