CHARLESTON COUNTY, SC (WCSC) -

Charleston County School District Superintendent Nancy J. McGinley will be honored as Arts Administrator of the Year for her continued commitment to arts education in South Carolina, the South Carolina Alliance for Arts Education announced Friday.

“Her efforts to advance learning in and through the arts for all Charleston County students is commendable and deserves recognition,” said Eve Walling-Wohlford, Executive Director for the SC Alliance for Arts Education.

McGinley has been a strong leader and advocate of building a Lowcountry regional partnership among education, arts, public institutions, and private sector companies to advance the role of arts integration in Charleston, according to a press release from the district.

District spokesman Jason Sakran said McGinley has been instrumental in adding four creative arts schools: Sanders-Clyde, EB Ellington, Jennie Moore and North Charleston Creative Arts.  She also piloted and expanded the Engaging Creative Minds initiative and directly supported the Charleston Marathon -- a funding source for the District’s arts education programs.

Former Order of the Palmetto and SC Music Educators Honor Administrator Award winner, Principal Jayne Ellicott from Ashley River Creative Arts notes, “Never have I felt the support of the arts as I feel with Dr. McGinley as our leader. She truly understands the arts and the impact they have on all children.”
