A message from our President. 

I want to thank our Alumni Association and the Sumter Community for the strides we have made in the midst of a global pandemic. Unfortunately, due to the pandemic the annual gala celebration has been cancelled for two straight years. However, with your support and volunteer time we have managed to keep going in troubled times. We will continue to do what it takes to ensure we remain in compliance with all Covid-19 restrictions in effect at this time. However, our museum is open by appointment, and I believe you will be pleased with the changes and improvements that have been made.
