A very significant issue faces our county:
80% of our adults do not have a baccalaureate degree.
This low educational attainment limits our citizens’ abilities to reach their career dreams and provide for their families. It also restricts the economic development of our community as a whole, challenging our ability to attract businesses and improve employment rates.
To address this issue, we need community-wide collaboration among the people and organizations already dedicated to educational excellence (of which there are many!). We also need to foster a culture that not only encourages the best of its citizens but EXPECTS it.
We can do it, and you can help. We invite you to explore this site to learn how YOU can show that you are up to the challenge of making ours the best educated county in South Carolina!
