East Tennessee State University is scheduled for November 18 at 11am. The admission counselor will be there to discuss their new tuition reset, $10,500 for tuition PER YEAR, not semester, for NC students to attend ETSU.

Students, there are many things we “Gotta’ do” … and there are the things we “Get to do”.  Those actions in the “Get To Do” category are called Privileges.  How many can “Get To Do’s” can you count?  Think about it.  Think about how fortunate you are to be a citizen here … a student at SCS … and a member of this Community.

This week, please take time out to begin to make a list of your Privileges.  Some might call them Blessings.  Others may call them Gifts.  At any rate, I promise you that if you pause to reflect on all the things you “Get to Do” that it will make you glad.


We will meet on Wednesday, November 18th and Celebrate all of the wonderful things that “WE GET TO DO”!!!
