Christian Learning Centers of Greenville (CLC) proudly announces the first-time development of online accredited Bible courses for public high school students in Greenville County. The Greenville County School District approved the organization’s Bible courses for high school credit in February of 2007.  Since then, interested high students participate in the courses off school campus with parental consent.  As required, the organization also (1) meets South Carolina school instructional standards, (2) hires certified high school teachers who do not work for the school district to teach the courses and (3) uses no state funds to render the courses.

Tigerville, SC – Chase Tomberlin, a senior music major from Greer, has more going on in his life than just going to class and studying. He has a part-time job, but not just any part-time job. He travels two times a week, maybe more, to Charlotte, NC to rehearse with the Carolina Panthers PurrCussion drumline, a percussion ensemble that performs during every Carolina Panthers home game.

“Being on the sideline of an NFL game is a lot of fun,” said Tomberlin.

He heard about the drumline from a friend he taught with through North Greenville Indoor Percussion, a non-profit youth percussion ensemble sponsored by North Greenville University. He auditioned in April, shortly after the end of the Indoor season.
