More than 70 state and municipal employees from across South Carolina converged on the John de la Howe School campus Thursday, November 13, 2014 for training in the Certified Public Managers program.
Stephanie Duncan of Columbia, Training Director in the South Carolina Office of Human Resources, said the state has been holding training at John de la Howe on an annual basis for the past dozen years.
Thursday’s six-hour long session focused on team building, according to Duncan.
“This is such a beautiful setting, and participants were encouraged to carpool from the different parts of the state for the training,” she said. “We have a combination of state and municipal employees from all across out state, including law enforcement, firefighters, employees of state agencies—a wide variety of people.”
