Board of Directors

The Bettis Preparatory Leadership Academy Planning Board

 

The BPLA Planning Board was organized in June 2014, under the vision and leadership of Dr. Myrtis Brightharp-Walker.  The goal of the BPLA Planning Board was to work together to write a plan for an innovative Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) Charter School, in Edgefield County.  The school’s mission is to inspire students and prepare them to become academically successful citizens of integrity who will become lifelong learners and leaders, working collaboratively to positively impact our society and world.  Bettis Preparatory Leadership Academy officially opened on August 20, 2018.
