Doby’s Mill Named Blue Ribbon Lighthouse School!!!

I was extremely pleased to learn today that Doby’s Mill Elementary School has earned the designation of a “National Blue Ribbon Lighthouse School.” This is a tremendous honor for the school, its faculty and staff, and its community. The criteria for receiving this award are extremely rigorous. I can’t begin to say enough about the hard work it took for the school to earn this distinction. The school will be formally honored in December in Charleston.

This is the second year in a row that at KCSD school has received this award. Last year, ATEC was similarly honored.

Congratulations!!

  1. I am proud to be a teacher at Doby’s Mill Elementary. Receiving the honors of Palmetto’s Finest and Blue Ribbon Lighthouse School of Excellence are a result of the high expectations, dedication, and hard work of our wonderful students, parents, faculty, staff, and administrators. We could not have reached these achievements without the support of our district office, board members, and community. I am confident that we will continue to set high goals and reap tremendous rewards for our students and school.

I am proud of the many honors our school has received, and we certainly could not accomplish so much without the stalwart support of our wonderful community. I would like to thank our super students, their parents, and their whole families for embracing every challenge we set before them. As the heart of our school (and the reason we exist), our students inspire us to strive to achieve all we can. They are terrific! Doby’s Mill exemplifies the self-fulfilling prophecy; we expect greatness, and greatness is exactly what we get.
