Septima Clark


The South Carolina Education Association (SCEA) and Charleston County Education Association (CCEA) honored Septima P. Clark Corporate Academy on September 6, 2022 with a $1,000 for the Girls with P.E.A.R.L.S mentoring program. Students were on hand to receive the award.

Additionally, the CCEA recognized the school with the Community Service Award. This award was originally presented to Septima P. Clark in 1976. A plaque with the original historical document from that time was recreated and presented to Principal Nakeam Binyard to commemorate the school’s namesake and history.

CCEA President Adrian King also announced the restart of its annual Community Service Award, which will recognize a Charleston County School District employee for his/her work in the community. The award will be presented each April at the Spring Social.
