Chappell named Educator of the Month by South Carolina State Treasurer

Chappel William Chappell, a social studies teacher at Horry County Schools Early College High School, has been recognized by South Carolina Treasurer Curtis Loftis as the Educator of the Month in the state’s Financial Literacy Master Teacher Recognition Program. 

The South Carolina Financial Literacy Master Teacher Program provides incentives to K-12 teachers who are experts in the area of financial literacy and have a desire to teach professional development workshops to other educators in their schools and districts. Participating teachers have access to specialized training and financial literacy curriculum resources that enable them to promote financial literacy education in K-12 schools.

Sponsored by Future Scholar, South Carolina’s 529 College Savings Plan, and in partnership with SC Economics, this statewide financial literacy initiative aims to energize more teachers about the importance of incorporating personal finance education into their classrooms.
