Nikki Haley: There will always be a part of me in the Carolinas
Now that she is out of public office, Nikki Haley is turning part of her attention back to South Carolina.
On Tuesday, the Original Six Foundation — the charity founded by Haley — announced the former S.C. governor and U.N. ambassador would be rejoining the organization as the chair of its board.
Haley is part of a new board and other Original Six Foundation staffers rolled out Tuesday. Haley helped run the charity, focused on helping rural South Carolina, throughout her time as governor. But she had to step away when she was named President Donald Trump’s U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.
The Original Six Foundation currently is focused on programs assisting school children with homework at Richard Carroll Elementary School in Bamberg County, Manning Junior High School in Clarendon County, and Jonesville Elementary and Middle School in Union County.
“South Carolina’s children are our state’s future leaders,” Haley said in a statement. “That’s why it’s so important that every single child feels they have the support system and resources they need to succeed. Regardless of where they are born, we want these kids to know all of us are here to lift them up and help them achieve greatness.”
