About this Event

Based on a true story, Miss Virginia stars Emmy-winner Uzo Aduba as a struggling single mother who is losing her teenaged son to the rough streets of Washington, D.C. Unwilling to see him drop out and deal drugs, she puts him in a private school. But when she can’t afford tuition, she launches a movement to change the system that is destroying him and thousands like him. Like Miss Virginia Walden Ford, many parents in the Aiken, SC community are concerned about the quality of education their children are receiving and the education options available. While many students in the area are quite successful, there is a growing desire for parents to have a stronger voice in the education sector. This event will provide an opportunity for parents and other community members to screen the movie Miss Virginia and also engage in fruitful conversations about how they can grow as advocates for high quality education choices. In addition to screening the movie, My SC Education is partnering with the Eta Gamma Sigma Alumni Chapter of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority Inc. Operation Big Book Bag is one of the national service initiatives for Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority Inc. One of the objectives of Operation Big Book Bag is to provide children with the resources for completing homework assignments in order to stay on their educational journey. To that end, My SC Education and the Eta Gamma Sigma Alumni Chapter of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority Inc is requesting that all attendees donate school supplies for Operation Big Book Bag.
