Teaching Fellow Program

div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"> Attention all future teachers!

The Teaching Fellow Program is entering its 20th year of offering the state’s brightest and best students up to $24,000 over four years to become South Carolina educators.

Administered by CERRA-South Carolina, the Program provides fellowships for up to 200 students each year (actual number determined by funding from the General Assembly). These students participate in enrichment programs at a Teaching Fellows Institution, engage in professional development and leadership opportunities, partner with communities and businesses, and receive up to a $6,000 fellowship annually for four years as long as they are in the process of completing a degree leading to teacher certification and meet the criteria to continue in the program. A Fellow must agree to teach in a South Carolina public school one year for each year he/she receives funding.

Any student who is a legal resident of South Carolina (DACA students are not eligible for Teaching Fellows) and a current high school senior, or junior graduating early, who will be attending college as a freshman in the fall of 2019 may apply. Fellowships are based on academic achievement, references, community and school involvement, an interview and a writing assessment. Students must attend one of the ten Teaching Fellows Institutions. Currently, these include Anderson University, Charleston Southern University, Coastal Carolina University, College of Charleston, Francis Marion University, Lander University, USC Aiken, USC Columbia, USC Upstate, and Winthrop University.

The online application will open September 1, 2018. The deadline for submission will be December 1, 2018, with notification to Fellowship recipients in early spring 2019. For any questions or if you would like help applying, please visit the CIC or see Mrs. Dilley in 329D.

Girls Golf
9/19

The Lady Vikings golf team traveled to Woodcreek Farms to take on Cardinal Newman and Heathwood Hall in a non-conference matchup yesterday.  Unfortunately, the course and the strength of the Cardinals top 3 were too much for the lady Vikings to overcome but were able to stay ahead of them. There were several birdies made on the day and a new season low by several lady Vikings.  Low medalist for the first time this season was sophomore Millie Spivey with her season-low round.
Other lady Vikings contributing to the overall team score were: Madeline Kay, Maddie Webster, and Mary Freeman.

9/20

It was a beautiful afternoon as the Lady Vikings were back on their home course taking on their region rivals the Blythewood Bengals.  For the second match in a row, Millie Spivey surpassed her season-low score by 2 strokes to capture low medalist for the match.  Unfortunately, the solid playing by Millie Spivey and senior Madeline Kay was not enough to carry the Lady Vikings to victory.  Blythewood's team score of 195 tops Spring Valley's team score of 206.  Other Lady Vikings contributing to the team score were Maddie Webster and Millie Sox.  The Lady Vikings next match will be home on Tuesday, Sept 25th taking on the Sumter Gamecocks and the Cardinals of Cardinal Newman.
