We love you. We love your passion, your dedication to the arts, and your support of one another. It’s what makes a Govie, a Govie. So let’s spread the love together all month long! Each week in February, we’ll announce different ways for you to share your love with the SCGSAH community. There will be opportunities to share fond memories, tell your story and advocate for SCGSAH. So stay tuned, and if you’re not already following us on social media, now’s the time to connect!
Week 1: Share your photos!
Remember what it was like to be a SCGSAH student? Please share your favorite pictures of you and your friends during your time here on campus. If you are the first person to submit a picture of yourself with Dr. Virginia Uldrick you will receive a free alumni t-shirt! Upload your photos here.
Week 2: Advocacy
We hope that you were able to participate in this week’s Arts Advocacy Day in Columbia! Organizations from across the state, including the Governor's School, the S.C. Arts Commission, the S.C. Arts Alliance, and many other arts advocates came together at the S.C. State House in Columbia to remind legislators about the importance of funding arts programs that impact our schools, communities, economy and our overall quality of life.
As you continue your love affair with the arts, we encourage you to be an arts advocate. Take the time to thank Governor Henry McMaster as well as your state senator and representative for their continued support of arts programs in South Carolina. (Find your legislators at http://www.scstatehouse.gov/legislatorssearch.php.) Also, please encourage them to attend the Governor’s School for the Arts Foundation’s legislative event on March 1 at the Palmetto Club in Columbia. This will be a great opportunity for state leaders not familiar with SCGSAH to learn what an amazing place this is!
