2014 marked a year of celebration and accomplishment for the SC Campaign! We turned 20 years old, and celebrated an amazing 54% decrease in South Carolina’s teen birth rate since the agency's inception. Throughout the year we were humbled and honored by all press coverage this news generated and the well wishes and happy birthday shout-outs we received from our friends and partners. We even had the opportunity to work with South Carolina artist Jonathan Green to commission a poster to help us celebrate and remember all the great accomplishments of our first 20 years. Don’t forget to order yours today!
On May 7th we brought together more than 600 of our closest friends to celebrate all the hard work that has been done to get our state to this point. During the night we celebrated “20 Champions of the First 20 Years”, and, thanks to all of our sponsors, hosts and guests – had an amazing time… view the photo gallery to see for yourself!
It’s been an amazing year and as it comes to a close, there is still much more on the horizon. In the next few months we will complete and release a new organizational five-year strategic plan; publish and distribute our first book “Accelerating Progress: A road map for achieving further reductions in teen pregnancy”; and, announce an even further decline in the teen pregnancy rate. We are officially half-way there! The teen birth rate in our state has decreased an almost unbelievable 54% since 1992!
Thanks to all of our sponsors, honorees, guests, vendors and staff - the 20th Anniversary Celebration was a great success. Check out photos from the event here!
