Emmy winner Trooper Bob and National Award-winning Beaufort High School Theatre Students to present at SCHSL Leadership Summit

Columbia, SC- The South Carolina High School League is excited to announce the lineup of presenters at the 2019 Student Leadership Summit being held on Friday, March 29, at the DoubleTree Hotel in Columbia, SC.  This 13th annual event will start promptly at 8:30am and continue until approximately 1:30pm.

Presenters include NFHS National Award-winning “Heart of the Arts” student theatre group and instructor Laraine Fess (Beaufort High School, SC), Omari Pearson, (Passion to Purpose), Rob Cottingham, (S.C. Youth Suicide Prevention Initiative), Kim Williams, (Fellowship of Christian Athletes), and special guest speaker Trooper Bob of WCIV -ABC News 4.

Over 300 student-athletes (and their coaches) representing over 75 South Carolina high schools will have the opportunity to work alongside these presenters in three rotating workshops throughout the day and engage in one on one activities with fellow summit attendees. It’s a unique learning experience that reinforces the relationship between athletics and academics.

 “These are world-class presenters highly skilled in working with teens as well as adults on significant issues of importance in high schools today.  It is our hope the summit will provide information for further discussions back at the high schools in which ALL students can participate. Please join us to get firsthand experience with our student leaders and guests,” states Nessie Harris, SCHSL Associate Commissioner.

This educational opportunity would not be possible without the support from our sponsors Carolina Panthers, PalmettoPride, and BSN Sports.
