Character Creed: "I know what is right and I will do it!"
An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity. - Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
The celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King is a time that we stop to reflect on the past and focus on the future of humanity as a whole. Dr. King’s legacy has taught us to commit ourselves to service by serving each other and those who are less fortunate in our communities. Dr. King once stated that an individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity. Service is a powerful way that we can take action, rise above our own needs, and focus on the needs of others.
The Martin Luther King Steering Committee, in conjunction with University of South Carolina Aiken Inclusion Advisory Council (IAC) and Aiken Technical College is inviting Aiken County students to submit an original written essay that draws on their experience to respond to this question:
-What are some concerns that you think our society is facing? How can we address and resolve some of these societal concerns?
-How can you take a stand (rise above) to address some of the concerns of humanity?
Successful essays will answer the question, and refer specifically not only to the writer’s personal experience and observations but also to the original quote by Dr. King’s.

ACORN MENTOR PROGRAM-Kick off Week!
We are excited that South Aiken Presbyterian and Friendship Baptist Church are collaborating with Schofield Middle again this year to provide mentors for our students.
At Schofield Middle, we believe students need positive affirmation, encouragement, and assistance in setting goals. Our mentors will serve as positive role models and commit to 30 minutes weekly to listen, encourage, tutor, finish projects and classwork, and assist in the development of goals.
The commitment for volunteers who participate is one day per week during the child’s lunch period (about 30 minutes) throughout the school year, and the volunteer can pick the day he/she is available. If we can start identifying volunteers from any congregation or community members who are interested in serving, they can start the screening and training process very quickly.
