BLACK HISTORY PROGRAM ENJOYED AT SUMTER COUNTY MIDDLE SCHOOL
On February 28, 2012 Sumter County Middle School (SCMS) celebrated seven “African-Americans who ROCK” at its annual Black History Program. A large number of parents, community leaders, and Central Office staff were on hand to witness an awards ceremony for Selena Wallace, Nathelma Maxwell, Rodney Shelton, Ernestine Carter, Kip Harris, Regina Odom, and Mary Francis Dennard. These teachers and staff members have committed many years of service to the children of Sumter County Schools, particularly SCMS.
The SCMS Black History Program also featured performances by the Americus-Sumter County High School Gospel Choir led by Mr. Bradley Bunce and Dr. Quincy Hilliard, a world-renowned composer of band literature and the composer in residence at the University of Louisiana, Lafayette, was the keynote speaker. Men of Destiny, a mime dance group led by Shernone Butts, performed as well.
