Congratulations to Mr. Josh Drews!
Spring Valley High School’s Josh Drews has been selected as the recipient of the Columbia Museum of Art’s 2021-2022 Mac Arthur Goodwin Award for Outstanding contribution to the field of Arts Education in South Carolina.
The Mac Arthur Goodwin award is given annually to a South Carolina art educator whose work honors the legacy of its namesake – Dr. Mac Arthur Goodwin (1942-2016) and his legacy of leadership as an Artist, Arts Educator, and Arts Administrator at the state and national levels. Josh’s nomination letter outlined his exemplary career and steadfast dedication to the principles of arts integration and his commitment to supporting the arts in his community.
The award comes with the recognition that Josh follows such high standards of achievement and a $250 cash award. We’re thrilled to also honor Josh’s service amongst his peers at the CMA’s Evening for Educators event on Tuesday, May 2, at 4:30pm at the Columbia Museum of Art.

Sparkleberry Lane Construction
We wanted to let all of our families know that we will be experiencing some traffic issues on Sparkleberry Lane in front of the school over the next 2-3 months. Richland County will be making updates to the gas lines, storm drains, and adding sidewalks. Work crews will do their best to minimize the impact to arrival and departure times at school. If you are a car rider or student driver, we strongly encourage you to arrive early to school to make sure you are on time for class.
After School Tutoring
We will offer both on-campus and virtual tutoring options this year. Offering both platforms allows us to provide more options for students to get academic assistance after school. Please visit the SVHS Tutoring website for a complete schedule of the tutoring opportunities.
A special thank you goes out to the Spring Valley Education Foundation for funding this important initiative.
