Clerk of Court and The Spartanburg County Foundation Launch Spartanburg County Criminal Justice Youth Institute

November 4, 2016

The Spartanburg County Clerk of Court and The Spartanburg County Foundation is pleased to announce a new collaborative initiative offered to Spartanburg County youth in the coming year. The Spartanburg County Criminal Justice Youth Institute, a partnership of the Clerk of Court and The Spartanburg County Foundation, is a four-month leadership training program designed to introduce Spartanburg County 11th- and 12th- grade students to the criminal justice system.

In response to several recent tragedies across the country, the Institute will help strengthen understanding and eliminate any misconceptions between youth and criminal justice officials in Spartanburg County. This innovative program, modeled after the Foundation’s Grassroots Leadership Development Institute, will empower Spartanburg County youth to become positive contributors and leaders in the community.

“I’m delighted to partner with the Spartanburg County Foundation to make the Spartanburg County Criminal Justice Youth Institute a reality,” said Hope Blackley, Spartanburg County Clerk of Court. “The first-hand exposure to the criminal justice system will strengthen communication and understanding amongst Spartanburg County youth and criminal justice officials. It is our hope that the Institute will create a network of young leaders who will positively impact our community.”

Participation in the program is open to any 11th- and 12th- grade student attending a Spartanburg County public, private, or home school. Interested students may click on the link below to download an application or visit the Clerk of Court’s website at www.spartanburgcounty.org. All applications must be received at The Spartanburg County Foundation (424 E. Kennedy Street, Spartanburg, SC 29302) by 5:00 p.m., Wednesday, November 30, 2016. Selections for the pilot program will begin early December. Questions regarding the application process should be directed to The Spartanburg County Foundation, (864) 582.0138.

The Clerk of Court has established an Advisory Committee for the Institute comprised of Barry Barnette, Victor Durrah, Vicky Free, Kevin Harrison, Susu Johnson, Tim Metz, Dr. Ifekan-Shango Simon, and Mary Thomas. This committee will guide and promote the Institute through the pilot year and will help grow the program for the future.

“We are excited to partner with the Spartanburg County Clerk of Court on this unique program. The Institute is a testament to the power of partnership and is a proactive approach to help prevent Spartanburg County from becoming a negative national headline,” said Mary Thomas, Chief Operating Officer at The Spartanburg County Foundation. “We look forward to seeing the positive outcome and growth of this innovative initiative.”

A fund has been established at The Spartanburg County Foundation entitled The Clerk of Court Community Fund. This fund is devoted to the education and promotion of the criminal justice field and supports the Spartanburg County Criminal Justice Youth Institute. The Spartanburg County Foundation has awarded a $15,000 lead match grant to the Clerk of Court Community Fund and will match donations to this fund dollar for dollar until December 31, 2016. Anyone interested in supporting the Spartanburg County Criminal Justice Youth Institute may donate to The Clerk of Court Community Fund.

A Special Message from Wes Moore

The Spartanburg County Foundation would like to share an important message from
New York Times Bestselling Author Wes Moore.

 

Good afternoon, Spartanburg!

I hope all is well and you are getting ready to enjoy a restful and relaxing Labor Day weekend. We as a family are coming off of a fantastic summer and the kids are getting ready to start school. Mia (5) is now a kindergartener, starting her new school and James (2) is in his second year at Pre-K. I continue to be the most blessed husband and father around!

I am also writing to share a few professional updates as Fall approaches. A few months ago I was honored that Oprah Winfrey selected my book The Work to be featured on her show Super Soul Sunday. This Sunday, Sept 4, the show will air on the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN). My conversation with Oprah will focus on my book, which you helped make a New York Times Bestseller, as well as our work at BridgeEdU. I am thankful for the chance to sit down with her to share more about the work we are doing and the challenges we strive to solve.

And speaking of BridgeEdU, we are incredibly excited to have just started our most recent school year. As you are aware, BridgeEdU was founded to address the college completion crises by creating technologies and hybrid services that resolve the main obstacles preventing students from persisting in college. Our initial platform has grown from a small pilot group of students to this year where we will serve hundreds of students, with close to 20 employees, and we are very excited about both our efficacy and tremendous growth prospects going forward. Our next product, a financial aid technology platform named “YesU” is targeted to launch next month and is already generating real buzz and excitement. You will hear more about both soon, but you can learn more at www.bridgeedu.com.

Finally, a third way we are looking to raise awareness about the education challenge is through film, and I am excited to Executive Produce (alongside my mom!) a documentary entitled “All The Difference” which will have its national premiere on PBS on Sept 12. The film follows two African American young men as they graduate from high school and try to navigate higher education. The persistence problem in higher education is real, and we want to shed a light on the topic and generate a national dialogue that moves us to action.

Thank you for your consistent love and support. I could not be more grateful.

Have a wonderful Labor Day weekend!

Elevate,
Wes

Foundation Grants Land to City of Spartanburg Along Mary Black Rail Trail

In 1949, The Spartanburg County Foundation received title to a 2.3-acre tract of land on South Pine Street from what was then the Spartanburg County Children’s Home. The vacant tract, situated across the street from the entrance of Crystal Drive, is a crucial greenspace adjacent to the popular Mary Black Rail Trail. The space provides an important buffer between the trail and South Pine Street. Today, the parcel is valued at $100,000.

On August 18, 2016, The Spartanburg County Foundation granted the property to the City of Spartanburg in order to aid in the enhancement of the Rail Trail. While city officials report there are no immediate plans for the parcel, having it under city control is important.

“We are very grateful to The Spartanburg County Foundation, its executive team, and its board for this important contribution,” said City Manager Ed Memmott. “We have an incredible amount of momentum in Spartanburg today, and everywhere you look, The Spartanburg County Foundation is playing a crucial role in moving our community forward. This particular contribution will further strengthen the future of our City’s most popular recreational amenity, ensuring that thousands of our residents are able to live healthier, happier lives.”

The Rail Trail is the most-used recreational amenity in the City of Spartanburg, with approximately 70,000 annual users, and it is an important connector between several neighborhoods and businesses.

“The Spartanburg County Foundation is honored to play a part in the development of our community. We are proud to partner with the City of Spartanburg, and it is our hope that this grant will improve the lives of Spartanburg County residents by providing a versatile space that will help further develop the Mary Black Rail Trail,” said Troy Hanna, President and CEO of The Spartanburg County Foundation.
