State Newspaper Highlights Student Art Work

I am really proud of the fact that the State newspaper website feature of student holiday art includes a number of Kershaw County students.  The work of Alyssa Faulkenberry of Mt.

Reaching Out Into Our Community

I can’t begin to express how proud I am of the many ways in which our schools have reached out into the community during the holiday season. As I have said many times, one of the great strengths of our district is the way in which students are taught to give back to the community. This is a wonderful reflection upon our entire community!
