The Early Learning Partnership gathered last week for our annual board retreat, held this year in the Williams Family Multicultural Children’s Literacy Collaborative room on Winthrop campus. Board members showed their knowledge of facts and history about our organization by working together in teams playing an ELP Jeopardy game. Founding member Sylvia Echols introduced Gary Williams, whose family gift made the literacy collaborative possible. Mr. Williams gave an inspiring speech about volunteering, community togetherness, and his history in Rock Hill. After a brief discussion of board business, members enjoyed dinner, social time, and brainstorming ideas for the upcoming months.
