Educator to address S.C. Tax Council's summer seminar

June 24, 2008

Lifelong educator Larry Biddle will address the South Carolina Tax Council's annual summer seminar on Tuesday, June 24 at Coastal Carolina University's Waccamaw Higher Education Center in Litchfield. Biddle's talk is from 3 to 3:30 p.m., and it's free and open to the public.

"Success formula: I^3+HTxC" is the topic of Biddle's address, an explanation of his formula for life success, which comes during the summer seminar of the organization.

Biddle, along with his wife Virginia "Ginny" Biddle of Conway, established the Biddle Center for Teaching and Learning in 2005, a new outreach center within Coastal Carolina University's Spadoni College of Education.

Biddle has close connections to the University and to the local school district. He was assistant director of Coastal Carolina College from 1966 to 1974, and his leadership was instrumental in the growth of the institution during those years. In addition to teaching Spanish, Biddle coached basketball and baseball, and helped organize the School of Education. For eight years he was assistant principal of Conway High School, which he led to national prominence as a model school for his Renaissance program, a system of rewards and incentives for students, teachers and administrators. The program was adopted by Jostens, Inc., and became a trademark for its scholastic division. He is chair of the Board of Visitors of the Spadoni College of Education.
