Coastal Carolina Community College will host a day of service event in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day at 9 a.m. on January 15, 2018, on Coastal’s campus in the Bodenhamer Auditorium. The event is open to the public; no tickets are required.
The event will feature Dr. Climetine Clayburn. Dr. Clayburn has more than 40 years of experience in the education field and has worked in both teaching and administrative roles in a variety of communities. She will discuss her struggle of being the first black teacher at a school and how she turned that into an opportunity and built community and understanding in the classroom. Her career features several similar situations, where she refused to accept that barriers were insurmountable or students were just too bad to teach.
