Over 350 adult practitioners attended the Spring Training Institute and Celebrating Our Success luncheon on Friday, February 15, 2019 at the DoubleTree Hotel in Columbia.

The Spring Training Institute kicked off with rousing words from Bishop Herbert Crump from Freedom Temple Ministries.  Then participants went to a variety of outstanding presentations on topics including using social media to promote your Adult Education program, case management, testing and compliance, fostering a growth mindset, advanced tips for using the calculator and many more!

The Celebrating Our Success Luncheon brought representatives from SCAAED (SC Association of Adult Education Directors) and SCAACE (SC Association of Adult and Continuing Education) together to award outstanding educators, partners and learners.  State awards followed, recognizing the efforts of programs to meet performance and testing goals.  Hall of Fame recognition went to those who have been with Adult Education for 10, 20 & 30 years and to those who have contributed to adult education above and beyond their regular job duties.

South Carolina Adult Education recognizes the outstanding efforts of all staff who work with adult students on a daily basis. You serve as teachers, mentors, parent figures, role models, social workers and friends to the students who enter your programs.  Our state is much better off because of your efforts, and we salute you!
