Bethesda Academy to get $100K donation from South State

Posted By on Wed, Aug 13, 2014 at 5:38 PM

South State Bank will present Bethesda Academy with a $100,000 check for the establishment of the South State Bank Center for Young Entrepreneurship.

According to a spokesman, the Center "in conjunction with Bethesda’s Work-Study curriculum, aims to teach principles of sound business development, financial management, and integrity in the workplace to the students of Bethesda Academy."

The work-study portion of the program will grade students on their actual labor in the workplace and students will build a portfolio of their work while in the program.

"Every student will graduate knowing what it takes to run a business – integrity, discipline, responsibility, accountability, critical thinking – as well as understanding how to write and implement a business plan."

Originally founded in 1740, Bethesda Academy is the oldest child caring institute in America.

    While there is plenty of worry about how violent crime will affect tourism, the real concern is how it will affect the decision of residents whether or not to stay. The idea of leaving for a more safe locale seems almost inconceivable to those of us who’ve invested many years and whole lifetimes here. But Savannah’s just like anyplace else— people and businesses can decide it’s just not worth it anymore.

    Maybe, just maybe, some of the outrage is gone because there is a sense that matters are at least beginning to get somewhat under control here?
