Greetings! I am grateful and excited to serve as Director of Alternative Learning Programs for a second year. We have had a tremendous year, thus far. We have been recipients of both the NetLEAD Grant and the Ezra Jack Keats Grant. Students have participated in college tours and educational field studies to places such as Harvey B. Gantt Museum, BOEING, Jonathan Green's Off the Wall and Onto the Stage Ballet, to name a few. Jeffrey Lampkin hosted our 2nd Annual Black History Panel where the Francis Marion Gospel Choir performed. This school year is reflective of the previous year which was also a year of great achievements. We accomplished many things last year: 17 Evening High School graduates, 23 Adult Education graduates, MAP and HSAP test gains, first-ever educational tour in our district outside of the continental United States (STAR Academy students went to San Juan, Puerto Rico this past June), 20 G.R.E.A.T (Gang Resistance Education and Training) graduates, the premiere of GOA Live, our African American History Discussion Panel, featuring WACH Fox 57's host Jeffrey Lampkin, and a fantastic Adult Education Career Fair, among many other things.
