OAK HILL -- As publisher of Headline Surfer, it is my honor and privilege to write pro-actively on the merits of the Burns Sci-Tech Charter School and its dedicated staff of educators led by Dr. Jan McGee, its principal.

I did so after coning across this link: http://www.greatschools.org/florida/oak-hill/13511-Burns-Science--Technology-Charter-School/?tab=reviews.

Oak Hill has its limitations -- mostly septic systems as opposed to water and sewer and very little industry. But the two centers in Volusia County's smallest and southeastern-most city of 2,200 straddling the Brevard County line to the south, Edgewater to the north, Osteen to the west and the Canaveral National Seashore to the east, is its city hall and its charter school.

It truly amazes me how many parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and even retirees with no offspring locally volunteer their time and services for the betterment of the charter school.

Community blogger Linda Hyatt wrote a blog that I've published online this morning. Yes, it's a chicken dinner fundraiser. But it's so very important for everyone to pitch in.

Buy a meal for your spouse, for your kids, grandkids; heck the neighbor you may not really know. It's to support the Oak Hill Community Trust, which supports the school among myriad community good works. The folks at the Trust are trying to buy an electronic sign. 

And they're looking for ideas on a good location. I don't know about you, but I think it would look great right in front of the Oak Hill City Hall in place of the time-worn black and white placard out there now.

Here is a link to Linda Hyatt's community blog for more details:
