Coach Whitmore

Coach Whitmore and Ms. Aro ran the Charleston Marathon (half) while the Fine Arts team served as course marshals. Our scholars directly benefit from this event each year through the Youth Endowment for the Arts Grants program. Coach Whitmore finished the race in just under 1:40 and Ms. Aro completed the race in just under 1:57. Coach Whitmore finished second in the Master Female category. Great job!

MLK Breakfast

Scholars from Sanders-Clyde attended the annual MLK Breakfast. Our scholars met many successful African American business owners and influential citizens.
