Dr. Charles KovacikOutstanding Higher Education Social Studies EducatorSC Geographic AllianceUSC-Columbia
Since 1969, Dr. Charles Kovacik has touched many social studies teachers in SC.During his 30 years as a geography professor at USC, he has devoted countless hours researching and promoting the Palmetto State.He has spent the bulk of his career educating South Carolinians about their state.Dedicated to strengthening geographic education at all levels, he worked closely with the State Frameworks Rewriting Team on the geography component of the newly adopted State Standards.The geography strand received an A rating in a spring Fordham Report, ranking SC as one of the top 4 states in the nation.He has spoken before the State Board of Education and the Education Oversight Committee as an advocate for geography education.His enthusiasm for geography is contagious, as evidenced by the many loyal teachers who have become Teacher Consultants and active members of the South Carolina Geographic Alliance.Without his vast knowledge of our state, his willingness to eagerly and appealingly share his knowledge, his infectious enthusiasm, his "campaign to eliminate greasespots," or his grant-writing ability, social studies would not be where it is today.If you know him, neither would the sales of BBQ, or pig, as he calls his area of expertise.

Two free copies of the atlas were mailed to each school in the state, and some are being sent to county libraries.For $200, teachers can buy packs of 30 with a CD that includes lesson plans and virtual field trips.
Other states have produced their own atlases and use them to promote businesses, Kovacik said.

The State | 01/14/2003 | Slinging hash and ribbing your neighbors

www.thestate.com [cached]

Charles Kovacik, a USC geography professor and co-author of "South Carolina: The Making of a Landscape," said he was perplexed by the 12-member vendor list when he first saw it.

He's eaten in more than 100 barbecue establishments across the state, and very few made the inaugural list.Kovacik said even his neighbors noticed, asking him about it during the past few days.
"South Carolina has got this rich tradition of barbecue restaurants, and people here argue about it until they're blue in the face," Kovacik said."I never heard anybody argue about Black Jack Barbecue, Charleston Bay, Sticky Fingers - that's not a serious barbecue restaurant."
Turns out that owners of some of the state's barbecue spots that didn't make the list had similar thoughts - as did their customers.
Now in the third generation of selling barbecue, for example, various Dukes family members run restaurants in Orangeburg, Elloree, Beaufort, Blackville, Ridgeville, Summerville, Charleston and West Columbia.
