SMC Global is proud to support Petersburg Primary School in Pageland, South Carolina and its ongoing commitment to early childhood education. On Tuesday, March 19th, 2024, Heath Brewer, SMC’s Senior Site Manager for South Carolina and Kansas, had the privilege of presenting the school with a $250 donation and a box of 1,000 pencils. Carolina Humanik, the esteemed Petersburg 2023-2024 Teacher of the Year, graciously accepted the donation on behalf of the school.

Heath Brewer of SMC Global remarked, “Caroline is a go-getter. Petersburg students are most fortunate to have a charismatic and well-spoken champion on their team!”

Petersburg Primary is home to 425 students from PK4 to 2nd Grade, with 80% of students economically disadvantaged. Competition for skilled teachers with talent and innovation, long-standing education gaps, low high school graduation rates, and the impending retirement of 77 million baby boomers place tremendous workforce challenges nationwide. Investing in early childhood education is crucial for building a top-notch education system and cultivating a more skilled, efficient, and valuable workforce that will benefit America for years to come. Please join SMC Global in celebrating and honoring Petersburg Primary staff members who play a crucial role in guiding Pageland youth to become lifelong learners
