Greer High School is among five schools in South Carolina whose School Improvement Councils (SICs) have been named statewide 2023 award finalists for their accomplishments in parent and civic engagement within their school communities.
The SC School Improvement Council’s annual Dick and Tunky Riley Award for School Improvement Council Excellence was created in 2002 to recognize the significant contributions made to public education by more than 11,000 local SIC members who volunteer in the state’s 1,100-plus K-12 public schools.
In alphabetical order, this year’s Riley Award finalists are:
- Belvedere Elementary SIC (Aiken County Public Schools)
- Greer High SIC (Greenville County Schools)
- Hilton Head Island High SIC (Beaufort County School District)
- Jennie Moore Elementary SIC (Charleston County School District)
- Wilder Elementary SIC (Sumter School District)
“These School Improvement Councils have performed tremendous work for their school communities,” said SC-SIC Board of Trustees Chair Stewart Cooner. “We congratulate them for significantly supporting the impact that parents, educators and community members can make together for their schools and students.”
The winner of this year’s Riley Award will be selected from these finalists by an independent panel of reviewers and announced during an awards luncheon later this spring.
