The city of Camden announces that Mayor Tony Scully and Mayor Pro Tem Laurie Parks both recently graduated from the Municipal Association of South Carolina’s Elected Officials Institute of Government.

The institute is designed to give elected officials a better overview and understanding of how to establish good public policy in their respective hometowns. The program includes in-person and online sessions where participants take part in a variety of courses and activities to help improve their knowledge of shaping public policy.

Voters elected both Scully and Parks to council in November 2012.

Scully is a playwright with Broadway and off-Broadway credits. He also served as a board member of Historic Camden, the Upton Trio and Columbia Children’s Theatre; and has taught writing and dramatic monologues to Continuous Learning Center students. Additionally, he was Camden and Kershaw County Chair of the White House’s childhood obesity initiative, “Let’s Move Cities & Towns,” and was also the co-founder of the Mini-Olympics of Kershaw County.

Parks is a 1999 graduate of the Palmetto Leadership Program of Kershaw County and the recipient of the 2005 Nettles Award from the Kershaw County Chamber of Commerce. She is also a 2002 graduate of Leadership South Carolina. Currently, she is the chair of Junior Leadership of Kershaw County; co-chair of the Individual Campaign Drive of the United Way of Kershaw County; and sits on the boards of Kershaw County Special Olympics, Foster Care Review Board of Kershaw and Richland Counties, Camden Kiwanis Club, and Camden Community Theatre of the Fine Arts Center of Kershaw County.
