CCSD remembers the victims and survivors of the Emanuel AME tragedy. Cynthia Hurd, Susie Jackson, Ethel Lance, DePayne Middleton-Doctor, Clementa Pinckney, Tywanza Sanders, Daniel Simmons, Sr., Sharonda Singleton, and Myra Thompson. We remember the love and light they brought to this world, and honor them through reflection and prayer.
Reading Room Celebrates Esau Jenkins
The new Esau Jenkins Reading Room at St. John’s High School is home to a special collection (donated in part by the Avery Research Center) on the life and work of the civil rights and community leader. Pictured: Art instructor Dona Dowling and librarian Minerva T. King pose in front of the graphite portrait of Mr. Jenkins created by St. John’s student Kaveon Foggy.
This summer, 100 open sites – like churches, schools, community centers, and park and recreation departments – throughout Charleston County are serving free summer meals to kids and teens. These sites are open to the community; and that means any child can walk in to one of these sites to eat a free breakfast or lunch during the summer. To find a site near you, click here!
