Students from a local school recently attended the South Carolina Independent School Association Junior High Summer Leadership Conference, held in Orangeburg according to Larry Watt, SCISA executive director.

Williamsburg Academy students Catherine Boyd, McCabe Morris and Blakely Brandon participated in the event for junior high school leaders, Junior Honor Society members and Junior Beta Club members in the sixth, seventh and eighth grades. Advisors from the schools also participated in the program. Participants learned how to conduct an effective meeting, learned correct parliamentary procedures, honed leadership skills and took part in leadership and team building exercises. Additionally, David Coker, president of the SCISA Student Association and a student at Florence Christian School, addressed the group.

“Effective student leaders grow up to become effective leaders in our communities, state and nation,” Watt said. “One of SCISA's aims is to help educate our students in all facets of life.”

The South Carolina Independent School Association is a non-profit, voluntary association of over 110 independent schools serving more than 37,000 teachers and students.

Founded in 1965, the State of South Carolina incorporated SCISA as an exclusively educational organization with the responsibilities of establishing accreditation standards, coordinating academic and athletic competition and providing professional development for member organizations.
