Exciting Adventures | Endowment Intern Rebecca

Barrier Island Oyster Co.

This week was another adventurous one. Not only did I get to start working with the footage from some previous shoots but I also had the opportunity to tag along on a shoot in the Low Country. We spent the day visiting the Barrier Island Oyster Company, located on Ocella Creek. One of the best things about being an intern here is that you get the opportunity to visit unique places and learn about such a large variety of things.

While the summer provides wonderful time for relaxation, the extra time can also unfortunately promote the summer slide for some students. The Education Oversight Committee (EOC) recommends several resources to share with students and families as they head out for the summer.

Bishopville Shoot

My second week at ETV started off our summer long journey of traveling around South Carolina. Our first stop was Bishopville, SC on Tuesday. We had a very busy day of interviewing Bishopville residents and visiting some beautiful and unique sites. I enjoyed travelling to a part of South Carolina that I had never visited before and hearing from the locals about what makes it so great. As a native South Carolinian I was so happy to find even more reasons to love SC! Today we headed to Charleston for a story right on the edge of the water at The Charleston Maritime Center.

As school districts roll out student-issued devices across the state and country, the new digital access is a blessing for schools.  However, many parents are not ready for the parenting that comes with sending a student home with a device.  Just because the school issues the device does not mean that parents should back down from providing expectations and consequences for the new device in the house.

On the last day of the ETV Endowment's Southern Campaign Tour, tourists visited two locations. The first of the two was Historic Brattonsville, which is the site of "Battle At Williamson's Plantation," or "Huck's Defeat." In this battle, patriot militia, led by Colonel William Bratton, defeated the British Legion, commanded by Loyalist Captain Christian Huck.
