KCSD Board Wins Prestigious Award

I was tremendously pleased yesterday to learn that the Kershaw County Board of School Trustees has won a prestigious award from the South Carolina School Boards Association (SCSBA) for its efforts with Legislative advocacy.  Specifically, our Board is being recognized for its efforts in the area of getting employees registered to vote.

This is a very prestigious honor and one the entire community should be proud of.  The Board will formally receive its award at the SCSBA legislative conference on December 6.
