Part of Chapman’s mission is to provide cultural leadership to the local community. “This is where the groundwork has been firmly established – in the elementary schools, middle schools, high schools; on the district level; and even in the colleges – to position Spartanburg for setting the standards of excellence for the rest of the state. Congratulations to these arts educators for leading the way, for utilizing the arts and humanities as tools for producing well rounded creative students and citizens ready for the challenges of today and tomorrow.”
