Five South Carolina School Improvement Councils (SICs) have been named statewide 2021 award finalists for their accomplishments in family and civic engagement within their school communities. Now in its 20th year, the SC School Improvement Council’s annual Dick and Tunky Riley Award for School Improvement Council Excellence recognizes the significant contributions made to public education by the nearly 13,000 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:
Eastside High SIC (Greenville County Schools)
Flowertown Elementary SIC (Dorchester School District Two)
Millwood Elementary SIC (Sumter School District)
Myrtle Beach Middle SIC (Horry County Schools)
W.C. Sullivan Middle SIC (Rock Hill Schools)
The winner of the 2021 Riley Award will be selected from this year’s finalists by an independent panel of reviewers and announced during a virtual awards ceremony in April.
