FCS teacher selected for LEAD program
ORANGEBURG – An educator from Florence Christian School is among the first to participate in the South Carolina Independent School Association’s new LEAD program, designed to give teachers, coaches, and other staff members the opportunity to experience leadership and administrative positions. LEAD (Learn, Educate, Advance and Develop) provides additional leadership opportunities for outstanding educators.
Shannon McAlister, high school English teacher at Florence Christian School, has been chosen to LEAD the SCISA Debate program for the 2016-2017 school year.
Others selected for this program will assume responsibility for planning and executing already established SCISA events such as the Math Meet and the State Science Fair.
“SCISA annually conducts a state debate at both middle and high school levels with Florence Christian being our host school. Mrs. McAlister has served as coordinator for the state debate for the past four years and does an outstanding job. Her passion for debate is unparalleled,” stated Larry Watt, SCISA Executive Director.
Florence Christian School currently has 625 students enrolled in grades K3-12. It just wrapped up the annual food drive by collecting approximately 2.5 tons of nonperishable food items that will be distributed to various organizations in the Florence area.
