A team of TransformSC leaders presented at the Annual Conference of the National School Boards Association (NSBA) on April 9 in Boston. The presentation team included Mike Brenan, TransformSC co-chairman and president of BB&T South Carolina, Peggy Torrey, director of TransformSC, and Beth Branham, member of the Lexington School District 2 Board and the NSBA Board. Their presentation was part of an innovative workshop titled “Transforming Public Schools Today!” Attendees learned how TransformSC works to inspire South Carolina schools to adopt transformative methods of learning through partnerships with local business leaders, school boards, policy makers and administrators.
“We are extremely proud of the work that is happening statewide through the TransformSC initiative. The South Carolina School Boards Association is proud to share this success story with school board members from across the country,” says South Carolina School Boards Association Executive Director Scott Price.
The presentation included information about the backing of the TransformSC movement from top CEOs, school boards, administrators and teachers. The TransformSC movement has even caught the attention of educationalist Sir Ken Robinson, who features TransformSC in his most recent book, Creative Schools.
The NSBA represents state school boards associations and their more than 90,000 local school board members.
