Mr. Ferdon and Mrs. Gillard-Rice
Jim Ferdon, Director of Georgetown County School District’s Adult Education Center, has been named Georgetown County Association of Educational Office Professionals (GCAEOP) Administrator of the Year.

Ferdon is an administrator whose main goal is to ensure that his faculty, staff, and students experience growth while employed or attending Howard Adult Center.

GCAEOP stated that Ferdon “is a kind and compassionate leader with a unique leadership style. By promoting our local theme, “Grab Opportunity and Lead” he allows his employees to take charge and lead when given the opportunity.”

Ferdon demonstrates respect and concern for all his students, regardless of age, always making them feel welcome, encouraged, and valued.

An application for GCAEOP’s Administrator of the Year is submitted each year to the South Carolina Association of Educational Office Professionals (SCAEOP).

GCAEOP is proud to have two previous state winners from the Georgetown County School District: Dr. Randy Dozier, former superintendent; and Myrtle Milton, Executive Director of Support Personnel and Employee Programs.

About Howard Adult Center

Howard Adult Center is the home of Georgetown County Adult Education. As a South Carolina Adult Education program, we strive to assist adults in obtaining the knowledge and skills necessary for employment and self-sufficiency; in the completion of a secondary school education; and we assist adults who are parents to obtain the educational skills necessary to become full partners in the educational development of their children.

History of Our Building
In 1986, the Georgetown Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta erected a historical marker on the Corner of Duke and King Streets in Georgetown that reads:

After purchasing this land January 1, 1866, Georgetown Colored Academy built a school here. By 1908 the old building had been torn down and a new school built, its name changed to Howard. The elementary department moved into a new structure on Kaminski Street in 1938; the high school followed in 1949. After the 1984 graduation, predominantly black Howard merged with mostly white Winyah School to form Georgetown High School.
