The Continuum: Education Redefined, Part 1

This is Part 1 of a 3-part series on creating innovative CTE environments. This series explores the Continuum, a career training and education center (CTE) that provides college and career paths to students while driving economic success. Located in Lake City, SC, the Continuum is a collaboration between The Darla Moore Foundation, Florence Darlington Technical College, and Francis Marion University.

In Part 1, host Michelle Smyth talks with two superintendents who partnered with the Continuum. Dr. Laura Hickson of Florence County School District 3, and Dr. Neal Vincent of Florence County School District 2. Dr. Vincent was also part of the original planning effort. “Having the partnerships that we have at the Continuum allows us to offer more,” said Vincent.

The programming model is revolutionary and demonstrates what can be accomplished with partnerships and a strong commitment for impacting students. Dr. Hickson explains, “We hear students say, ‘This has changed my life.’ It’s worth it to get up every day and continue to change lives.”

We hope you get inspired by the way The Continuum is redefining what education looks like. Thanks for listening!
