"I was more than honored when approached to serve on the John de la Howe Foundation Board. It only takes a few seconds with the administration, staff, and students to realize what a special thing is happening in McCormick County. These kids are becoming some of the most well rounded students the state of South Carolina is producing. I salute the lawmakers for their commitment to the education of these fine men and women. I am humble to have the opportunity to be a part of this incredible school. May it continue to thrive for decades to come." - Bo Blanchard
