“Where ever the need is, that is where I am going to go.” Mayor Julia Nelson
Thank you so much to Julia Nelson, Mayor of Manning, for speaking with our students today! Our theme of the day was “Compassion”, and Mayor Nelson shared so much with us about the compassion of Clarendon County during the recent historic South Carolina floods. We commend her for her leadership through that time and for being the wonderful role model that she is! Her words and actions speak “Compassion.”
Each month, Clarendon County has chosen a character word to emphasize to all of its citizens. We at Clarendon County Adult Education use those character words as the theme for our monthly student recognition program. This month, that word is compassion, and we could think of no one better to demonstrate compassion in action than the Mayor of Manning, Julia Nelson. After her address, we celebrated several of our students’ accomplishments and an overall very successful Fall semester!
We’re happy to share that we’ve had seven graduates, fifteen students have earned their Career Readiness Certificate through ACT/WorkKeys, and forty-two students have made academic gains. Congratulations to all!
