For the second consecutive year, the North Central High School (NCHS) Tourism Management team was declared the winner of the South Carolina Lodging Management Program Championship. Coached by NCHS teacher Darron Kirkley, the four-person team had to plan a world premier affair for a “Celebrity Apprentice” event as a test at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center. The competition was judged by professionals who work at the Culinary Institute in Charleston and/or are hoteliers in Charleston.
