The 3rd Block classes of Mr. Jonathan Johns and Mr. Ted Zawacki hosted a teaching seminar by Mr. Lou Benfante of the Heritage Library who spoke on the History of Hilton Head Island. A power point presentation detailed a thorough background of Hilton Head Island from the 1500’s to Present Day. Students became familiar with William Hilton, the significance of Port Royal Plantation, Daufuskie Island, Fort Mitchell, Zion Chapel, the History of the Gullah Community, Spanish Wells and the significance of cotton, indigo and rice in the early development of Hilton Head Island. The influence of Charles Frasier was emphasized as well as the significance of the Lighthouse in Sea Pines Plantation. Mr. Benfante proved himself to be an enlightened speaker and authority on Hilton Head Island.
