Educators Honored for Contributions
David Johnstone, principal of Sterling School/Charles Townes Center, and Jane Snyder, coordinator of the GCS Gifted and Talented Program, have been recognized for their leadership by the South Carolina Consortium for Gifted Education (SCCGE). Both received the Professional Award for their contributions in sharing their programs and providing resources for other districts statewide.
Serving as principal of Sterling School/Charles Townes Center since its inception, Johnstone stepped into a role of leadership and quickly became a magnet for other districts who wanted to develop a similar program. Sterling/CTC is the state’s first school for highly gifted students.
Ms. Snyder was recognized for her long-time and continued service to the SCCGE and to gifted students in SC. She excels in advocating for the needs of gifted students, promoting new programs and services for GT students in a large district, and providing professional development for teachers.
