Let's meet and learn about locals who are making a huge difference in the community.

5th Annual Black History Banquet: Theme: A Legacy of Strength, a Future of Hope at the Citadel Alumni Center. The Charleston County Republican Party honored seven men and women and awarded the North Star Award to various community leaders last night.

Janice Malone is a Charleston native and graduate of Burke High School. Mrs. Malone has been a teacher for 38 years and served as Assistant Principle for two years. She has turned around three Title One schools in Charleston, receiving high honors and was named Elementary Star Principle of CCSD in 2012. She serves as the principle of Sanders-Clyde Creative Arts Elementary and her feeder system proposal, D20PCP, was funded by ESSER and aims to support families to better support students. She stands by her premise of "We don't pity, we empower our scholars!" We will feature each of the North Star recipients this month.

Thank you Maurice Washington and the committee team for putting on such a great event to recognize those giving so much to their community.
