South Carolina ASCD Emerging Leader Program

As part of our ongoing mission to Learn, Teach, and Lead, South Carolina ASCD seeks to develop and support the next generation of leaders.  The South Carolina Emerging Leader Program is comprised of an accomplished group of educators, typically with 5–15 years of experience, who desire to become more involved in our state's educational community.  Emerging Leaders are passionate and committed to the "Whole Child," a belief that every child in that state of South Carolina deserves to be healthy, safe, engaged, supported, and challenged.
