Sumter's Home Chapter, NSDAR
On Aug. 8, at the first-year teachers' orientation for the Sumter School District, Sumter's Home Chapter of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution presented each of 12 teachers two $25 gift certificates and a historical novel written and autographed by NSDAR member Shelia Ingle. Ingle is a South Carolina author whose novels help educate young people about the many contributions made by women during the American Revolution.
NSDAR is a national women's service organization established 126 years ago and dedicated to promoting historic preservation, education and patriotism and to honor the patriots of the Revolutionary War. By supporting local teachers, Sumter's Home Chapter demonstrates our love and support for classroom teachers, who are often the first to instill knowledge and love of country in students.
Teacher incentives have become an annual project of Sumter's Home Chapter and are intended to emphasize the importance of literacy in the teaching of history.
