1. Citadel veteran student becoming a leader in the computer science program
A veteran student at The Citadel is working on a way for people who witness a crime or a dangerous situation to help alert others nearby via their smart phone. Patrick Ayres is now working on the final stages of an award winning app he designed called Crime Watch, to make it a functioning, downloadable, crime-fighting mobile application that is available to the public for free. He's looking to take Crime Watch to the next stage after being awarded two prizes in the 4th annual Mobile Application Development Competition. The contest was held in late 2014 and Ayres' app was awarded top prize, as well as the Attendee Favorite prize. The 2014 competition was organized by the Charleston Defense Contractors Association and included an award of $3,250, which Ayres can now put toward further developing Crime Watch.

2. Regional education report shows achievement gaps among tri-county students
High-performing Lowcountry students continue to make academic gains during their educational careers while those students who aren't doing as well are falling further behind. That was the takeaway from Tri-County Cradle to Career Collaborative's first annual Regional Education Report unveiled Thursday during an event at Charleston Southern University. The collaborative is a group of business, education and nonprofit officials focused on improving educational outcomes for students in Charleston, Berkeley and Dorchester counties. About 85 area leaders attended the event, including the superintendents for all four local school districts and the presidents of Charleston Southern University, Trident Technical College and The Citadel. Charleston County School Board Chairwoman Cindy Bohn Coats, Berkeley County School Board Chairman Kent Murray, Mount Pleasant Mayor Linda Page, Charleston City Councilman William Gregorie and Berkeley County Supervisor Bill Peagler also were among those who attended.
