SCSPA Executive Board
Advisers and publication staff members can also receive leadership training while they serve on SCSPA's Executive Board. Members are elected from the Lowcountry, Midlands and Upstate regions. Board members set SCSPA policy, approve new programs, plan conferences and assist SCSPA staff members in enhancing the overall profile of scholastic journalism in South Carolina.
Student officers are elected each spring to serve during the following academic year; adviser officers are selected every other spring and serve a two-year tenure.
SCSPA Chair: Deborah Gascon, Dutch Fork HS (Irmo)
