South Carolina Association of School Psychologists

Although SCASP was born in the fall of 1967, complete with constitution and president, Ron McWhirt, its conception goes back to an earlier time, fall of 1966. Dr. Ralph Tindall was teaching a seminar in school psychology for the second time in South Carolina. The students in that seminar produced papers about various professional concerns. One of these papers, authored by Marion Burns, was concerned with the value of a professional organization to a school psychologist. The idea of a professional organization appealed to the school psychology students. The first group of students was about to go forth as interns and they could see the need for an organization to further support them in their attempt to serve the children of South Carolina. In the spring of 1987 the University of South Carolina school psychology majors took the Wisconsin State Association of School Psychologists bylaws and constitution given them by Dr. Tindall and Dr. Emfinger in a Chinese restaurant in Five Points. it was there that the first constitution was accepted by the group in May, 1967. It was termed revised because it was a revision of Wisconsin's or perhaps Ohio's, constitution. In the fall of 1967 Ron McWhlrt became the first president of SCASP.
