• Coosa Elementary School is calling on local businesses to help “flip” their school; an initiative to develop young leaders. Coosa Elementary is seeking business partners of various levels to assist in the development of projects throughout the school. Projects include visually enhancing the interior of the school building with mural paintings and motivational quotes that inspire young leaders. Funds are needed to purchase paints and supplies. Volunteers are also needed to help carryout these projects. Anyone interested in becoming a business partner or making a donation should contact Carmen Dillard at 843-322-6100 or Carmen.Dillard@beaufort.k12.sc.us.
