South Carolina State Superintendent Dr. Mick Zais spent the day in the Lowcountry, meeting with Beaufort County District officials and Coosa Elementary leaders about the challenges and successes of the year.
The Coosa Leader in Me program has really caught his attention.
"I'm always impressed when I see young people learning and excelling in the classroom, and dedicated teachers who want to make a difference in the lives of children, and we're seeing that here at Coosa," said Zais.
Zais also discussed some of his goals he'd like to achieve before the end of his term, including getting new school busses and new text books.
His term ends in January, and he is not seeking reelection.
Zais has endorsed his former Deputy Superintendent Meeka Childs. She is one of six Republicans and four Democrats running for the seat.
