Reading Partners South Carolina is launching its 10-year anniversary celebration at the RiverDogs!

Reading Partners SC, an educational nonprofit dedicated to ensuring that all elementary school students have the foundational literacy skills necessary to be successful in school and beyond, is pleased to announce the kick off of their year-long 10th anniversary celebration beginning August 31 as the featured nonprofit at the Charleston RiverDogs game. Former RiverDog, motivational speaker, author and Reading Partners board member, Chris Singleton, will be speaking on behalf of the organization.

Reading Partners has served 5,368 students with the help of 11,165 community volunteers over the last ten years. The numbers are impressive, but the real success story has been the student academic gains and social/emotional maturity that have developed as a result of having a consistent, caring volunteer tutor sharing just an hour a week to make sure that all students in our community have the best odds for success in school and in life. Last year, 89% of kindergarten through second grade students met or exceeded their primary end of year growth goal.

Why: There is a literacy crisis in this country and right here in South Carolina, where only 20% of students experiencing economic challenges are reading proficiently by the end of 4th grade. If students are not reading proficiently by the end of third grade, they are four times more likely to drop out of school. Reading Partners aims to change those odds and needs community support now more than ever since it is estimated that students have lost an additional seven months to a year’s worth of learning during the pandemic. For more information on becoming a tutor during the 2022-23 school year, please visit www.readingpartners.org. No teaching experience is required. Orientation, onsite support and a structured, easy-to-follow curriculum is provided.

When: Wednesday, August 31 at 7:00pm.

Where: Joseph Riley Park, 360 Fishburne St, Charleston, SC 29403.

About Reading Partners

Reading Partners’ mission is to help children become lifelong readers by empowering communities to provide individualized instruction with measurable results. Each year, hundreds of local volunteer tutors across Charleston and Berkeley Counties support students on their paths toward becoming strong, confident readers.

July marks a clean slate for the Rotary Club of Daniel Island that commissions a new board every July.

July 6 was an internal club assembly meeting with the new board, with the following week on July 13, welcoming the guest speaker, Captain John Cameron, the Charleston Branch Pilots Association executive director. Cameron joined the staff in 2009 as a consultant for government and public affairs, industry liaison, port business development, and port safety and security. He was named executive director in 2011. Cameron retired from the Coast Guard in 2007 as Captain of the Port and Sector Commander, Charleston, leading all Coast

Guard operations throughout South Carolina and Georgia.

A harbor pilot’s role:

● board ships offshore,

● navigate ships in and out of the harbor, and

● protect the public, the environment, mariners and the flow of commerce

Harbor pilots are primarily regarded as skilled professionals in navigation as they are required to know immense details of waterways such as depth, currents, and hazards, as well as display expertise in handling ships of all types and sizes. Becoming a harbor pilot requires an expert ship handler license or authorization by a recognized pilotage authority. A harbor pilot can be one of the most dangerous professions in existence. There are only 1,200 harbor pilots in the world.

The vessels offshore contact the harbor pilot when they are about two hours away from the main terminals, the Wando & Leatherman. In 2021, they made 4,296 transits. These vessels include container ships, tankers, elk ships, cruise ships, car carriers, yachts, and naval vessels.

Weather conditions have a significant impact daily. If there are any dangerous water or weather conditions, the ships will park 12 miles outside the harbor and decide if they want to stay or head to the next stop, Freeport Bahamas. Twelve hours before the conditions set in during hurricanes, they start preparing to close the port. Often the harbor pilots are still at sea directing boats in and out of the harbor. They are the last ones in the ocean before hurricanes and the first ones out after a storm.

The Charleston harbor has a significant advantage due to the width of its channels, allowing large vessels to move in and out in both directions. In February 2022, the Charleston harbor had 36 ships waiting to get in. Retailers have excess inventory and supplies, which could mean slower activity for the remainder of 2022 (50% less) than just a few years ago. Cameron feels that this will sort itself out and we will get back to higher activity. Nine months ago, he believed the supply chain was almost broken.

The Rotary Club toured Charleston City Hall on July 28.

The Rotarian of the Month for July was Evan Murray. Murray is a new father and a sales associate for the Castengera-Cassidy team with Daniel Island Real Estate.
