GHS SIC named as Riley Award Finalist

Congratulations to Greer High School’s School Improvement Council who was named a statewide 2023 award finalist for the 2023 Dick and Tunky Riley Award for School Improvement Council Excellence!  Greer High is one of five local School Improvement Councils from across the state that were named as a finalist. 

Greer High School applied for the 2023 Dick and Tunky Riley Award for School Improvement Council Excellence through a detailed case statement chronicling the inaugural Greer High School CTE Summit that took place in March 2022.  

The annual Riley Award for SIC Excellence was created in 2002 to highlight the significant contributions made to public education by the nearly 12,000 School Improvement Council members who volunteer in every public school in the state. The award is named in honor of the former SC Governor and U.S. Secretary of Education and his late wife, recognizing the couple’s longstanding commitment to quality public education. 

This year’s Riley Award finalists are, in alphabetical order:  

The winner of the 2023 Riley Award will be selected from this year’s finalists by an independent panel of reviewers and announced during an awards luncheon later this spring.

Greenville County Schools and Greenville Federal Credit Union Announce Second Student-Run Branch

On Friday, February 24, Greenville Federal Credit Union and Greer High School held a joint press conference announcing the opening of a student-run branch at Greer High School. The Branch at Greer High is set to open in August of 2023.

The announcement was made live at Greer High with students and guests from the community, local and state government, Greenville Federal Credit Union, GCS Board of Trustees and District administration in attendance. This initiative brings real-world financial literacy and education into the school and allows students to gain real-life experience and preparation both for college and future careers as outlined in the District’s Graduation Plus initiative.

An application process will open this spring for students at Greer High interested in working within the branch.

This is the second student-run branch of Greenville Federal Credit Union to operate inside a Greenville County Schools high school. The Branch at Greenville High opened in 2016. Combined, the two programs represent a $1.2 million investment by the credit union towards supporting financial literacy efforts within public schools.
