Youth/ROTC/Military Appreciation Day
Saturday, October 13, 2018 has been designated Youth/ROTC/Military Appreciation Day at SC State University. SC State Athletics and the Department of Military Science in collaboration with the Office of Admissions, Recruitment and Scholarships would like to extend an invitation for you to come and join us for a fun filled day of activities planned for your enjoyment and academic enrichment.
SC State University Athletics has extended a special welcome for all youth to share the “Bulldog Experience” by offering a discounted game ticket of $10.00 to youth 17 and under and to youth groups (civic, community, fraternal organizations, churches, etc.) to attend the SC State University “Bulldogs” vs. Bethune-Cookman University “Wildcats” football game. Our half time show will feature the renowned Marching 101 Band and the Marching Wildcats Band.
Youth/ROTC Day is a special day designed to encourage elementary, middle and high school students to visit our campus and experience all that the University has to offer while enjoying a fantastic football game.
This year Steele Hill church youth and children will tour the campus and visit the bookstore prior to the game. The stage is set for an outstanding opportunity to showcase the University’s academic offerings, the ROTC Program and a glimpse of student life. You will witness the show-stopping, precision structured, musically divined Marching 101 Drum line and the three-time MEAC Champion Cheerleading Squad. As an added attraction, SC State University is offering a pre-game performance.
The church van will depart the church at 9:00AM, Saturday, October 13th and return by 6:00PM.
If you would like to chaperone please fill out a registration form. To participate in the SCSU Youth/ROTC Day, please complete registration form and see Robin Kirk, Tia Johnson, Keisa Barr, or Yvette Johnson. All forms and $10 fee for game must be turned in by September 23rd. Our goal is to have 20 youth and children participate.
We thoroughly enjoy our visits to Steele Hill AME Zion. The church leadership and members are warm and welcoming. I am blessed to have your support. Following are the items I highlighted:
1. Working with church groups to close the achievement gap by establishing tutorial centers with retired educators and other volunteers;
2. Steele Hill is invited to participate in the Indian Land 2018 Christmas Parade. Visit our website at www.ilcpo.org;
3. Lancaster County Good Samaritan Scholarship Foundation will be providing scholarships and mentoring opportunities to high school students classified as juniors. This program differs from other scholarships in that the mentors will work with the students through high school and college; and
4. The YMCA is now operating the Gregory Wellness Center at USC Lancaster and is proposing to construct a second facility in Indian Land at the Cross Ridge complex (formerly Inspiration Ministries).
Additionally, as you are aware I am seeking re-election to the Lancaster County School Board. I have yard signs available for anyone desiring to support my candidacy..
