Since opening earlier this year, the University of South Carolina’s new School of Law has become the anchor for a “law corridor of Columbia” running along Gervais Street, says dean Rob Wilcox.  He told Capital Rotary members on a tour Nov. 29 (he’s at far right in photo) that the legal district also includes the S.C. Supreme Court, the State House and the National Advocacy Center, which trains attorneys from the U.S. Justice Department.  The three-story, $80 million law school features 17 classrooms and two realistic courtrooms.  Wilcox said its design has a purpose and an impact that goes beyond mere aesthetics.  “It’s designed to send a message to our students – it’s not just college anymore,” he explained.  “It’s the beginning of your profession.  Different things will be expected of students here.  There are responsibilities that come with this.”  USC’s School of Law is one of the nation’s oldest and the state’s only nonprofit law school.  Its new home occupies nearly an entire city block at Bull and Gervais streets.  Capital Rotary’s tour was part of the club’s Fifth Wednesday program featuring local field trips in place of a regular meeting.

Chapin High School Principal Akil Ross was named 2018 National Principal of the Year by the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP)’s.  He is a member of the Rotary Club of Chapin Sunrise and has been the principal at the school for seven years.  The association praised Ross for significant improvement in graduation rates and academic proficiency.  That improvements happened after he helped raise money to provide extra instruction for struggling students to reduce dropouts, the group said.  He pushes for social as well as academic development among students, encouraging volunteer efforts that improve the Lexington County community and areas around it.  Ross is known for what he calls the six Rs: “Ready to learn, Respectful to others, Responsible to ourselves, Rigor in teaching, Relevance in learning and meaningful Relationships among students, faculty and staff.”  His message to students and staff is: “We are a thousand passions with one heartbeat.”  It’s a motto that he says will foster an environment where students are challenged academically while pursuing interests.  Congratulations to Rotarian Akil Ross on this achievement.

Do you worry about Alzheimer’s?  We do not have a cure for Alzheimer’s disease, but we must find one.  Finding a cure starts with you.  Every year the CART (Coins for Alzheimer’s Research Trust) Fund gives research grants focused on finding a cure for Alzheimer’s disease.  Rotary District 7770 sponsored an Alzheimer’s Gala at the Gaillard Center in Charleston in July to have fun and to raise money for Alzheimer’s research.  Thanks to many people dedicated to finding a cure for Alzheimer’s, the event raised $12,320.  A check representing the funds raised through the gala was presented to Roger Ackerman for the CART Fund on Tuesday, September 25.
