Postlewait Receives Patriot Award

Charleston County School District (CCSD) is excited to announce Superintendent Dr. Gerrita Postlewait is receiving the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve Patriot Award. She was nominated by Rich Gordon, CCSD’s Executive Director of Career and Technology who serves in the South Carolina Army National Guard.

The Patriot Award reflects efforts made by employers to support National Guard and Reserve soldiers, such as flexible schedules, deployments, family care and leaves of absence.

“The nomination was a ‘thank you’ for supporting employer policies and practices that allow me to fully participate in the South Carolina Army National Guard,” said Gordon. “My wife and children truly appreciate the outpouring of support and well-wishes from the Board of Trustees and the entire CCSD family during a very busy 2018. This is undoubtedly a direct result of Dr. Postlewait’s command climate.”

Dr. Postlewait will be formally recognized and presented the award at the January 28, 2019 Board of trustees meeting. The meeting will be held at Burke High School, 244 President Street in downtown Charleston.
