Greg and Lewis Thompson started Quixote Club with a vision to give back to the community by supporting children and their families. The end goal is attracting more families to plant their roots within the Thompson's hometown of Sumter, South Carolina.
With this vision in mind, Quixote Club was created to connect, inspire, and change lives through golf. With the support of its philanthropic minded members, proceeds from Quixote Club are reinvested back into the community through the Liberty STEAM Charter School. Through membership and corporate sponsors, Quixote Club is a catalyst to elevate the community by providing a world-class education to our youth and enriching the history of Sumter through philanthropy.
Liberty STEAM Charter School Timeline
In early 2019, Liberty STEAM Charter School was conceptualized by Greg Thompson. To bring this concept to fruition, he began bringing on individuals, experts in their field, who shared his vision of bringing a Public Charter School to Sumter, South Carolina.
In April 2020, the impossible became possible with the unanimous vote from the board of the Public Charter Schools District to begin operations in the Fall of 2021. Beginning with kindergarten and first-grade levels, it is set to expand to further grades and add more scholars in the ensuing years.
In June 2020, the Founding Executive Director finalists for Liberty STEAM Charter School were given a tour of the proposed location of the school.
The school was able to open its doors to the Sumter community in the Fall of 2021. If you would like to learn more about the Liberty STEAM Charter School, visit their website here.
