Three interesting conversations are featured on this week's podcast with news about scholarships for current high school and college students interested in or seeking programs preparing them for various aspects of international trade. Listeners will also learn about a $750,000 matching grant from the Boeing Corporation to the South Carolina Coalition for Mathematics and Science. The grant will be for the next three years to examine and improve communications skills in ten middle schools across the state. We'll also celebrate with the Darlington County Schools and visit with the Superintendent, Dr. Rainey Knight. The District is one of eleven we'll be featuring this winter and spring that achieved a School Report Card rating of "Excellent" for the past academic year. and the Darlington achievement is particularly noteworthy, due to a high incidence of Title I students in the District.
