Our Mission

Millie Lewis's Mission continues to promote excellence and integrity in the modeling and talent industries. We hold a great responsibility: the hopes, the dreams, and the potential of each person. We pledge to use our knowledge and connections to teach them, to promote them when advisable, and to protect them always.



In 1976, Barbara Corell became the director of Millie Lewis Modeling School & Agency. In 1982 George and Barbara Corell purchased the business from its founder, Millie Lewis. Together, they’ve built the company into South Carolina’s largest model/talent agency. Along the way, they’ve launched the careers of countless women and men who have gone on to work in local, regional, national and international markets. Millie Lewis graduates have been placed with world renowned modeling agencies including: Ford, Elite, Next, Wilhelmina, Folio-Japan, and Eye for I – Milan.

While careers in modeling or acting are significant and exciting, the Corells have focused their primary efforts on creating programs aimed at building strong self-esteem in children, teens and adults. The Millie Lewis Modeling School has literally seen thousands of individuals pass through their doors seeking various aspects of personal development. The philosophy is simple … when we can encourage a person’s feelings of self-worth and build inner confidence, we’ve provided a gift that will last for a lifetime!
