Students at Darlington’s Brunson Dargan Elementary (BDE) received recognition for their hard work at the annual Homework Center Awards, held May 18 in the school cafeteria.
Kids received certificates and trophies for their efforts to improve grades and study habits, as well as for participating in themed clubs like the Zumba Club, Book Club, and Google Club.
Special guest speaker James L. “Jimmy” Cooper, a Darlington businessman and former member of City Council, spoke to students about the importance of believing in themselves and taking chances – sometimes risking failure – in order to innovate and grow.
The BDE Homework Center has 60 students enrolled, making it the largest in the state, and has been so successful that there is now a waiting list for available spots. With support from SCE&G and the South Carolina Chamber of Commerce, the Homework Centers Program has for 25 years provided safe, supervised, and structured learning environments where students can complete their homework and improve their study habits in a fun atmosphere.
