  • Bryant plans to retire after 30+ years at Parkwood

    Mitch Bryant first started teaching at Parkwood in 1985. Over the past 30+ years of teaching at Parkwood, Bryant’s love of helping students learn and master new skills in the shop has not changed. He still believes that the skills students learn through hands on activities is the most effective way of learning. Many students are first introduced to the work Bryant does as 3rd graders through Wake Up to AG Day, an event hosted by Parkwood each year for local 3rd graders to learn how important agriculture is to our society. Bryant says that some of his students will talk about the memories they have of AG Day, as a 3rd grader, and now they are the ones hosting the event. Bryant has touched many lives over the years and after 34 years of teaching, he plans to retire at the end of this school year. Bryant says God has blessed him with a good career and now he looks forward to hunting, fishing, traveling, visiting family and doing “whatever I want to. After all, I am retired.”

  • Parkwood AFJROTC Visits McEntire Joint National Guard Base

    On February 28, 2019 Parkwood AFJROTC cadets traveled to McEntire Joint National Guard Base in Eastover SC to learn about F-16 fighter operations. Because McEntire is a joint base, it hosts units from the Army and Air National Guard; cadets mostly got to see the Air Force side of the base. Soon after arrival cadets witnessed an F-16 formation takeoff, which was very loud; fortunately they were given ear plugs for hearing protection.
