Vision, Values, and Viking Pride
With the year 2020, just around the corner, Dr. Booker touched on the importance of facilities and learning environments that support a generation of students who face a complex and competitive world. “Our graduates must have highly developed interpersonal skills, they will be required to be flexible and adaptable - to be ready for careers and professions that, as of yet, don’t even exist. Their hopes and dreams for the future depend on our vision and our values. It is incumbent upon us to help our children achieve their greatest aspirations.”
The District 7 School Board honored also honored Dr. Booker with a proclamation which ends this way: Now, therefore, be it resolved by unanimous consent of Board of Trustees of Spartanburg School District Seven: For all of these accomplishments and others – of which there are far too many to enumerate – the Board Trustees of Spartanburg School District Seven proudly recognize and publicly thank Dr. Russell W. Booker for his service and dedication to the District Seven family. Ever emboldened by his vision for our District, we stand ready to serve and support him in the years to come.
