“Dolphin Tales”

I have thoroughly enjoyed reading the Doby’s Mill Elementary Literary Journal, “Dolphin Tales.”  Special thanks to fifth grader Kinsey Barker for so graciously sharing the authorship by-line with me on a sequel to “The Sweetest Fig.”  Although I helped, she did most of the work.  Reading student writing is a real joy for me!

LEHS Yearbook Recognized

I am extremely proud of the fact that the Lugoff-Elgin High School Yearbook was recognized by Walsworth Publishing with a “Gallery of Excellence” award.  Only 5% of the yearbooks published by Walsworth nationwide received this honor and only 4 schools in South Carolina were recognized.  I have always admired the way in which the LEHS Yearbook has been on the “cutting edge” of creativity and new trends.  Super job!

Recognition For Excellence In Communication

I am very proud of this recognition…..KCSD does an outstanding job with communications with fairly limited resources….

Jim Smith Honored By Midway Elementary

I enjoyed watching long-time Board member Jim Smith honored by Midway Elementary School this morning for his countless hours of volunteer time at the school.  Midway dedicated its 2015 yearbook to Mr. Smith.  A much-deserved honor!

Special Thanks To Camden Rotary!!

I also want to recognize and thank the Camden Rotary for its generous donation of furniture for the Jackson Teen Center.  The Rotary Clubs in our community do a tremendous amount for our schools in so many ways quietly and without much fanfare.  Just another example.

Duke Power Supports Jackson Teen Center

I am deeply grateful to Mr. Rick Jiran and the folks at Duke Power for the generous grant of $2,000 to support the Boys and Girls Club Jackson Teen Center.  The funding will be used for furniture and equipment for the Center.  Great news!

Memorial Dedication For Charlene Mathis

This morning, I was privileged to be able to attend the dedication of a memorial to Ms. Charlene Mathis at North Central Middle School.  There were wonderful words of remembrance from both students and teachers, poetry, and music.  The bird bath placed by the flagpole in memory of Ms. Mathis will be a constant reminder of her dedication to teaching and her love of her students and colleagues.  A fitting tribute.
