Under incredibly difficult conditions, President Karla Gilliam and President-Elect Laura McClain did a fantastic job of leading the team through the implementation of SCTEA’s first virtual conference. I am looking forward to supporting Laura over the coming year and to seeing everyone gather together in Myrtle Beach for our next conference in February 2022.”
He will assume the SCTEA president role in February 2022.
