The Tamassee School was represented by Jason Eller, chief development officer, and Jon Holland, Interim CEO.


Both discussed the Tamassee Academy industrial expansion, a project to add vocational and career education for middle- and high-school students to its current academy curriculum.


The Tamassee DAR School is a non-profit children’s home and family service organization that was founded in 1919 and supported by the DAR. The school provides services up to 68 at-risk children in the residential program and 54 for day attendance.


Chapter regent Barbara Wymer presented a check to Holland and Eller in support of the school, and announced that funds had also been sent to the DAR’s Bahamas chapter for Hurricane Dorian relief.


The Palm Beach DAR meets monthly from October to May.
