Student learn about jobs at Boeing

Many of our Junior and Senior students attended a session at OC Tech Tuesday with Mr Frank Hatten of Boeing Aerospace.  Students learned about the qualities Boeing is looking to hire for in the next few years.  Mr Hatten stressed they they are looking for 4 things:  new hires need to know a little math (10th grade level), they need to be able to read at grade level, they need soft skills (be on time, look people in the eye, good posture, put down your phone, pants on hips, dedicated to work), and they need integrity (honesty). 

About 300 high school students in Orangeburg County got an introduction Tuesday to the aerospace giant with a major presence down Interstate 26 in the Lowcountry.

The students from each Orangeburg school district were selected for an all-access information session held in the Roquemore Auditorium at Orangeburg-Calhoun Technical College. They were told there is a future with the world's largest aerospace company.  More at the T and D jump here...


 

Edisto High School’s National Honor Society Induction Ceremony

 High School’s Thirtieth Annual National Honor Society Induction Ceremony was recently held in the school’s auditorium, and Edisto’s award-winning AFJROTC set the decorum for a ceremonial evening that celebrated academic achievement.
Twenty-one students in grades ten through twelve, pledged to uphold the virtues of scholarship, character, leadership, and service. The 2015-2016 inductees were Mason Beckom, Neia Blocker, Hayden Colwell, Carter Davis, Zachary Epting, Christopher Givens, Briseida Guiterrez-Gonzales, Cassie Hayden, Nathan Hayden, Ja’Quayla Hodges, Lucas Huggins, Brandon Jennings, Shayna Jennings, Brianna Lee, Neal Nettles, Morgan Rodgers, Shanta Sharperson, Matthew Strickland, William Weeks, Corban Wolfe, and Jessica Wolfe. Officers of the Edisto Chapter of the National Honor Society are Michael Bozard, president; Kyle McAlhany, vice-president; Jamelah Hogan, secretary; Jeremiah Hunt, treasurer; and Shareka Jennings and Bethany Jameson, historians.
After the awarding of certificates, Dr. Shannon Gibson, principal at Edisto High, congratulated the students and shared a speech about the importance of honor. He also reminded the inductees and other members of the National Honor Society, “To whom much is given, much is required.” A reception honoring the inductees and their guests followed the ceremony in the lobby of the auditorium.
Mrs. Barbara Elliott, one of the advisers, stated that the National Honor Society’s Induction Ceremony is one of Edisto High’s premier academic programs because it not only celebrates academics but also encourages service, leadership and character, which are bedrocks for the development of good citizens. Other advisers to Edisto High’s Honor Society are Ms. Danyell  Boneparte and Dr. Joni Jordan.

Compassionate Hearts at Edisto
Wendy Metts’ bright blue eyes light up and sometimes fill with tears when she thinks of the support she has received from her community after her breast cancer diagnosis in May.

Metts, a librarian at Edisto High School, has not been left alone in her battle against one of the leading causes of cancer deaths in the United States.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and the Pink Ribbon has come to symbolize the mission to spread information and education about a disease that Metts has not let get her down.  More from T and D at the jump here...
