2020 Salute to Education

After 52 consecutive years and over 655 awards to top academic students and teachers in Horry County, the Salute to Education program continues to meet a great need in our area schools, thereby increasing enthusiasm, motivation and performance standards.

The Salute to Education is only possible each year because of the dependable support of business and industry leaders, such as you.  This has truly been a wonderful example of business and education working together.

Teachers, students and parents are sincerely appreciative of your involvement, and we would like to ask you to continue to be a part of this important event.

The awards luncheon is scheduled for May 27, 2020 and will honor Outstanding Seniors from each high school in Horry County.  The student honorees are chosen by their Guidance Counselor based on a uniform grid system.  A special scholarship will be awarded to a student selected through an interview process involving area business leaders.  The teacher honorees are chosen by each student for having served as an inspiration to excel in the life of that student.

In order to make this program possible, we would very much appreciate you once again serving as a Sponsor in the amount of $300 (Major Sponsor) or $100.  For your contribution, you will receive complimentary tickets to the Awards Luncheon on May 27th, and will receive recognition in both the program and media opportunities.  The awards ceremony will be held in the multipurpose room of Horry Electric Cooperative, 2774 Cultra Road, Conway at 12:00 noon.

We know that it is important to set high expectations for our children.  We have also learned that it is equally as important to praise them when they are successful.

Please email Harley Shelley if you are interested in becoming a sponsor or purchasing tickets. Tickets will be available for purchase for $25 at the Chamber office!
