DISTRICT 1 – Cane Bay High School Ogugua Nwaezeiqwe -Chair Lance Calcutt-Vice Chair Michelle Smith, Debbie Smith -Advisors “Leadership United Around the World”
On November 4th, 2017, District 1 kicked into action and traveled through the world of great leadership. We came together and learned the 3 P’s of leadership from our general speaker, Joey Wade, got dressed in our T-Shirts, and went through some amazing workshops. I am so grateful to have such a great student council and advisor by my sides at all times to be able to host such an event. Lance did an amazing job getting the workshops ready and all in all being a great person to not only help with the District 1 Rally, but also to call my friend. The delegates that came brought the SCASC spirit, and I loved having the opportunity to talk to everyone and get them excited about Leadership. We all even got to know each other better with a good old- fashioned water balloon fight! I learned so much and am already excited to see everyone again. All in all, I thank everyone that made the District 1 Rally a success and traveled through the world of leadership with me. See y’all at State! -Ogugua
DISTRICT 2 - Waccamaw High School Tess Humowitz-Chair Isaiah Brooks-Vice Chair Julie Humowitz -Advisor “Make Some Noise with Leadership”
On November 10, 2017, District 2 delegates gathered at Waccamaw High School to Make Some Noise With Leadership. Throughout the day, delegates attended workshops, swap shops, play games, and were given numerous opportunities to mingle with one another. "It was such an honor to finally host a District Rally. I can honestly say that I was blown away by the turnout we had...it was amazing to see how different each attending school was, but it was even more amazing how they worked so cohesively with the other attendees. I'm so glad we all got to play our own tunes of leadership and made one big, beautiful, and diverse playlist of leadership." -Tess Humowitz
District 3- Calhoun County High School Ride the Waves of Leadership
The District 3 rally was the first to hold a rally in the afternoon/evening. While not ideal, this experimental time proved to have success. The time change was necessary because Calhoun County High School did not have an available off day. The opening general session was impressive and energetic. We enjoyed performances from the Calhoun County High School cheerleaders and band. The students shared camp experiences and viewed the camp video. The students attended workshops, feasted on a delicious dinner, and participated in a student talent show. Students were able to network and gain information that helped them grow as leaders.
DISTRICT 4 – Clover High School
Sydney Frascht –Chair Hailey Zalewa- Vice Chair Rhonda Morris – Advisor “D4 Shore to Shore: Taking Leadership Cross Country”
Planning D4 Rally, and seeing everyone enjoy what we had done was such an incredible opportunity. From the start of this process, the word I would use to describe everything is “amazing!” My amazing council worked so hard with me to plan out the activities, sessions, and decorations. My amazing vice-chair secured incredible workshops that I hope everyone loved. And, our amazing speaker did such a great job encouraging and inspiring everyone to be the best leaders they can be. Of course, the rally wouldn’t have been complete without our amazing delegates. They brought such contagious enthusiasm and energy, that it made all the work going into this rally more than worth it. At the end of the day, my council and I had a great time planning the rally, and I am sure everyone in attendance had a great time as well. I can’t wait to see what’s in store for the future, and see D4 “Take Leader Cross Country!” --- Sydney Frascht
DISTRICT 5 – Riverside High School Dillon Young - Chair Sophie Povod– Vice Chair Heather Greene – Advisor Make Leadership Great Again
The leaders of District 5 gathered together to discuss what it meant to “Make Leadership Great Again” and how to reboot their skills. Students mingled and made friendships that will last their lifetimes. After listening to a key note speaker, exchanging ideas with other students in swap shops and workshops, having a yummy lunch, and playing games, students returned home with fresh ideas to bring back to their school. D5 was truly American and a success!
DISTRICT 6 – Crescent High School Matthew Fortner- Chair Alexis Holman – Vice Chair Amanda Pinson- Advisor Happy Feet of Leadership
“Make sure your feet are in the right place, then stand firm.” D6 rally was one for the books. Students heard from keynote speaker Todderick Verdell and his story of perseverance in leadership, as well as attended student lead workshops learning new ideas for their school. “Happy Feet of Leadership” was held at the Crescent High School agricultural arena located in Iva, SC. The arena allowed for students t not only to enjoy the outdoors but also have plenty of space for networking and developing relationships. Advisors were able to see students as they rotated workshops and participated in events at the D6 rally. We had over 400 in attendance and students from third to twelfth grades. Crescent High School and Anderson School District Three would like to express our thanks for all that attended. It was an honor to host the D6 rally and we hope to see you all back in the future! ---Matthew Fortner
