Nikki Haley is coming back to her hometown.

The former governor and ambassador to the United Nations will be in Bamberg, South Carolina on April 24 to visit Richard Carroll Elementary School at 3 p.m..

She’ll be at the school’s Practice Makes Perfect Homework Center. The homework center is part of an after school initiative put together by Haley’s education non-profit, The Original Six Foundation.

Haley rejoined the board of the foundation in February, after she stepped down from two years as President Donald Trump’s ambassador to the U.N.

The foundation helps to bring together public, private and civic partners to improve education in South Carolina’s rural and in-need areas. Unique initiatives are created for the places the foundation supports. The foundation helped create after school programs in Bamberg, Clarendon and Union counties as well as literacy programs in Barnwell and Dillion counties.

“Each community initiative is unique in its initiation, strategy, funding, duration and participants,” the foundation’s website says. “The Foundation works to identify the greatest areas of need in each community that it serves by initially convening a meeting of business and community leaders as well as non-profit service providers and other community stakeholders.”
