Spartanburg, S.C. – The University of South Carolina Upstate will hold its Convocation Honoring December Graduates on Monday, December 18 at 7:00 p.m. at the Spartanburg Memorial Auditorium. The University expects 400 students to graduate.
Dr. Sheila S. Breitweiser, president of the South Carolina School for the Deaf and the Blind, will deliver the graduation address. Dr. Breitweiser served in many roles during her history for the past 35+ years in public education: classroom and special education teacher, and early interventionist. Her administrative experience includes employment as a principal and assistant superintendent in the Chapel Hill, NC schools, and as superintendent of The Governor Morehead School (NC’s state school for the blind). She has consulted extensively with hospital and treatment programs serving chronically ill students, along with those receiving psychiatric and substance abuse treatment.
Dr. Breitweiser received her bachelor’s degree from Marywood College in PA and holds the master’s and doctoral degrees from UNC-Chapel Hill, NC. Her areas of training and specialization include: elementary education, maternal and child health, education administration and supervision, and the following special education areas: multihandicapped, early childhood, mental retardation, attention deficit disorder and learning disabilities, behavioral disorders and visual impairments. Dr. Breitweiser is the author of numerous professional articles related to these various special education areas.
