GCS Welcomes Shining Stars
About 400 future teachers visited Greenville today to interview for teaching positions as part of the Shining Stars Teacher Recruitment event. Candidates came across the Southeast as well as Arizona, Wisconsin, Ohio, and Connecticut. Interviews were conducted throughout the day and candidates had opportunities to meet one-on-one with principals of the schools they wish to serve. Greenville County Schools will hire between 300 and 400 new teachers for the 2016-17 school year.
Superintendent Burke Royster welcomed the candidates with an overview of the district, while Mayor Knox White, County Council Chairman Bob Taylor, Chamber President Ben Haskew, Bon Secours Wellness Arena Manager Beth Paul, and Michelin’s Leesa Owens gave candidates great reasons to call Greenville home.
