Comprised of girls and boys from middle school to high school and even college, the 17 South team has a total of 31 athletes who were shooting for targets and competing against youth from all over the state of Georgia in the hopes of winning the state championship. This event was free to attend and open to the public.

Shooting sports are growing in popularity, which is evidenced by the fact that 153 youth shooters participated in last year’s championship, which has more than doubled in 2020 with roughly 450 shooters. Only two local clubs participated: 17 South Rod and Gun Club and Forest City Gun Club.The mission of the SCTP is to provide kids from elementary grades through high school and college with the opportunity to participate in the fun and challenging sports of Trap, Skeet and Sporting Clays, as well as the Olympic disciplines of Bunker Trap, Trap Doubles and International Skeet.These disciplines are led by trained and dedicated adult coaches in a supportive environment, with a focus on the safe handling and use of firearms.Coaches from the 17 South team mentioned that they were pleased to be able to offer this new program to their members’ families because they are a fairly young club, established only five years ago.

“It’s so exciting to be teaching the art of shooting to these young athletes,” said Ronnie Chambers, a 17 South coach. “This is a sport where the outcome of the competition depends on your skill level and hard work. Your height, size and gender won’t hinder your success. Every single team member was able to participate and scored individually, so you’re always working to improve your personal score. But then that score is combined with the teams for a collective total. So, you’re also supporting each other and building one another up.”

17 South shot Trap together at 1 p.m. on Friday. Throughout the rest of the weekend, the team members shot sporting clays individually. Then on Sunday at 3 p.m., the team came together once again to shoot Skeet.For more information about SCTP, including active teams in Georgia, visit www.sssfonline.org/scholastic-clay-target-program/.

Two Bethesda Academy Teachers Earn “Master Teacher” Status Awarded by SCISA

(SAVANNAH, GA) Two teachers at Bethesda Academy, a private day and boarding school for young men grades six through 12, were granted “master teacher” status after evaluation by the South Carolina Independent School Association (SCISA).

Craig Sherman and Jennifer Gilmour are the recipients of this honor. Sherman teaches social studies and history. Gilmour is a science and mathematics teacher, as well as a cottage teacher, whose responsibilities include ensuring all students staying in the cottage complete homework assignments, finish chores and are in bed on time.

“This is a major accomplishment for Mr. Sherman and Mrs. Gilmour, as well as for Bethesda Academy on several counts,” said Michael Hughes, president of Bethesda. “Firstly, an amazing amount of work goes into the application, so it is a lengthy and arduous process. Additionally, it is very rare for one school to have two master teachers named at once.”

The application process includes meeting rigorous teaching qualifications and submitting an entire portfolio for evaluation by a peer committee. It also entails presentations and exhausting interviews, endorsement letters from school officials and sample lesson plans.

“In their evaluation, SCISA staff also noted a ‘surge in professional development and teaching quality at Bethesda,’ because two of our teachers, Kim Godbee-Glisson and Elizabeth Peek, had been recent finalists for Teacher of the Year,” said Hughes. “This recognition is a tribute to our entire faculty and staff. Each consistently personifies Bethesda’s commitment to ensuring students receive a superior education that will enable them to mature into young men with the potential to lead exemplary lives.”

Having formerly been affiliated with the Georgia Independent School Association, Bethesda Academy has been a member of the South Carolina Independent School Association since 2014. SCISA is a non-profit voluntary association of independent schools responsible for establishing accreditation standards, coordinating athletic and academic competitions and providing professional development opportunities for member schools.

ABOUT BETHESDA ACADEMY
Founded in 1740, Bethesda Academy is the oldest child-care institution in the United States. Now it is a private day and boarding school for young men in grades six through twelve and is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.

A kickoff unveiling event for these bras will be held at Pinnacle Plastic Surgery on Thursday, October 3, at 4 p.m. “The Bra Project” will then go on tour throughout the Lowcountry for the entire month.

This year, the Pinnacle Medical Group is inviting local artists to participate in a non-competitive portion of “The Bra Project”. Artists’ submissions should be inspired by someone with a history of breast cancer and can be created in the medium of their choice. The deadline to enter as an artist is Friday, September 13.

All pieces will be auctioned off at the grand finale celebration, “The Bra Project: Bras and Bubbly”, which will be held at the Thibault Gallery on Thursday, October 24, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

During the “Bras and Bubbly” event, the students’ bras will be on display and the winner will be announced. Proceeds for the event will benefit DragonBoat Beaufort. Tickets are $25 and can be purchased at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/bras-bubbly-event-tickets-69224118201.

“So many of our patients are affected by breast cancer and we see first hand how someone’s family, work, confidence and overall quality of life can be impacted,” said Dr. Audrey Klenke, plastic surgeon and principal of Pinnacle Medical Group. “As a practice, Pinnacle Medical Group is dedicated to supporting the breast cancer community and our neighbors who are facing the fight with cancer. This annual fundraiser is our way of helping and we encourage everyone in the Lowcountry to join in our effort.”

According to breastcancer.org, an estimated 268,600 new cases of invasive breast cancer along with 62,930 new cases of non-invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in women in the U.S. in 2019 alone. Overall, about 1 in 8 U.S. women (12%) will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime.

DragonBoat Beaufort is a non-profit organization that started in 2012 when a group of cancer survivors was inspired by “Awaken the Dragon,” a documentary shown at the 2012 Beaufort International Film Festival. The goal of the organization is to assist cancer patients who live, work or receive treatment in the Lowcountry.
