Summer Visit with SAM


Earlier this summer, the Alamance Achieves Team visited Spartanburg Academic Movement (SAM), a sister organization in the Strive Together network, to see what and how they are ensuring children in Spartanburg, South Carolina succeed from cradle to career.

Along with our staff, members from our Steering Committee and Kindergarten Readiness Network met with the SAM leadership team and learned about the ways in which they are engaging the larger Spartanburg community in improving outcomes around kindergarten readiness, school attendance, and high school graduation. They emphasized building trust with partners and using data as a flashlight and not a hammer.
