Letter from the Editor: One More Time

By Leslie Moore

In this issue, both “Southern Snaps” and “Sasee Gets Candid” focus on education. Our own Connie Barnard does a wonderful job highlighting the amazing Tracy Bailey, and I gained so much knowledge from my visit with Madeleine Ritchie. Both of these women’s passion for helping our children succeed is an inspiration.

There are many dedicated educators in our community helping young people succeed by refusing to give up on them, even when they have given up on themselves. My son was one of those who nearly gave up, and several times his pain reached such a peak I was afraid I was going to lose my precious child. In desperation, I enrolled him in Myrtle Beach High School, and the staff there took my son under their wing. With their support, he graduated and received the help he needed to begin to live his life. On the 10th of this month, I will attend a ceremony for Horry Georgetown Technical College students with a grade point average of 3.75 and over. My son is one of those being honored. We just learned that he’s been accepted to the prestigious Middlebury Language School’s Summer Intensive Program in Vermont, with a partial scholarship, and, this fall, he will begin classes at U.S.C. in Columbia. Thank you Dr. Nona Kerr, and to my beautiful son – I always knew that this is who you really are.

The earth is what we all have in common.
