    News Release:

    7 local School Improvement Councils named to state SC-SIC Honor Roll for 2021

    COLUMBIA – The School Improvement Councils (SICs) of seven South Carolina public schools have been named to the SC School Improvement Council’s (SC-SIC) 2021 Honor Roll for their significant efforts to foster civic engagement in public education.

    These Honor Roll SICs will continue in the running for SC-SIC’s annual Dick and Tunky Riley Award for School Improvement Council Excellence. Now in its 20th year, the award is named for the former US Secretary of Education and South Carolina Governor and his late wife, and recognizes the vital contributions made by more than 1,100 local SICs and their nearly 13,000 SIC members across the state.

    The seven School Improvement Councils named to the SC-SIC Honor Roll for 2021 are (alphabetically):

    • Eastside High SIC (Greenville County Schools)
    • Flowertown Elementary SIC (Dorchester School District Two)
    • Millwood Elementary SIC (Sumter School District)
    • Myrtle Beach Middle SIC (Horry County Schools)
    • Round Top Elementary SIC (Richland School District Two)
    • St. James High SIC (Horry County Schools)
    • W.C. Sullivan Middle SIC (Rock Hill Schools)

     “These SICs have displayed their excellence in supporting the success of their schools this past year, particularly under the very challenging circumstances of this year’s pandemic,” said SC-SIC Board of Trustees Chair Robert Grant. “We recognize their commitment and thank them – and all School Improvement Councils across South Carolina – for the real and lasting differences they make for their schools, parents, students, and communities.”
