\Columbia, SC- The South Carolina High School League is excited to partner with the SC Technical College System’s “I Defy” campaign to bring the Super Senior program to life.
This initiative was created to recognize seniors at SCHSL-member schools who have shown dedication, perseverance, and resilience in progressing towards graduation during this challenging school year.
“I Defy” is redefining how the world thinks about technical education and celebrating the power of South Carolina’s technical colleges by spotlighting students across the state who are defying tradition, norms, and expectations through a technical education.
“This is a profound announcement as continued learning is an admirable commitment providing limitless possibilities,” said SCHSL Commissioner Jerome Singleton. “The SCHSL is supportive of all educational avenues to keep our student-athletes engaged with the possibilities that await them once their high school career concludes. The SC Technical College System is a nationally known network of distinguished institutions which produce highly trained professionals. We are extremely honored to have them as a partner.”
“In conjunction with the Super Senior program and the South Carolina High School League, “I Defy” will shine a light on this year’s graduating high school seniors by spotlighting students who exemplify the values of our technical college students — dedication, perseverance, resilience — and a community of dreamers and doers defying the odds and refusing to be defined by others,’ said SC Technical College System President Dr. Tim Hardee.
Help us celebrate your students by nominating them for “Super Senior” recognition. We are looking for high school seniors who embody the “I Defy” mission and have showcased our values throughout their high school career. Chosen nominees will participate in a vote-driven Super Senior competition amongst their peers across the state for the ultimate Super Senior title. Nominations are due by March 1.
