CCSD law enforcement students now certified hunters and boaters


Clarendon County School District Law Enforcement students will finish their program with an additional certification in Hunting and Boating. This opportunity was brought back to F.E. DuBose Career Center through the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources.

“We are extremely excited about this opportunity for our students,” said Mrs. Ladell Grice, FEDCC Law Enforcement Instructor. “This certification opportunity allows our students to not only become certified hunters and boaters, but it also provides them with an extensive knowledge of the laws and safety procedures about the area.”

Boater Education Programs teach students the fundamentals of safe and responsible boating, which is necessary to reduce loss of life, personal injury, and property damage while increasing boating enjoyment for outdoor enthusiasts. Likewise, the Hunter Education Program is necessary for the safe enjoyment of the outdoors, where students learn about responsibility, ethics in the field, and firearms safety. It is an addition to the certifications students earn through the Law Enforcement Program at FEDCC.

“This is a great opportunity for our students to add to their list of certifications they leave high school

with. Our focus at FEDCC is to provide as many opportunities for our students to succeed, whether they go off

to college or straight into the workforce,” stated Dr. Keisa Carr, Interim Director of FEDCC. “Law Enforcement is

a great career choice in high demand, and our students will be prepared through this certification along with

Legal Administrative, OSHA 10, and CPR certifications and work-based learning initiatives offered in the program.”
