The Physical Education Teacher Education (PETE) Club is one of the oldest student organizations in the Spadoni College of Education. Membership is open to all students enrolled in the Physical Education Teacher Education program. Dr. Sandra Nelson has been working with students interested in physical education for the past 20 years attending conferences and participating in events in the community. PETE is planning to attend SCAHPERD Conference in November. At the conference, student from all of the State’s institutions will attend several interactive sessions and compete in the Superstars competition. CCU students Aj Calderone, and Paige Decker currently serve on the future professional board for the state of South Carolina. PETE also plays an active role in mentoring. PETE is also looking forward to bringing Jump Rope for Heart to CCU’s campus in the Fall. Any students interested in PETE can contact Dr. Nelson at
