Looking back at highlights of a year of achievement

After the school year ends and the dust settles, it's always fun and gratifying for me to look at the accomplishments of our students and staff over the past year. As I frequently say, the Kershaw County School District (KCSD) consistently outperforms its resources. The 2015-16 school year was certainly a year of noteworthy achievement.

I don't want to

As the years of Mama's life grew long into the shadows of age, she managed to squeeze every bit of good out of growing old. She used it to get both what she wanted and to shun that which she did not want.

In 1972, Dr. George Terry travelled to Cainhoy, on the Wando River near Charleston, on a hunch. For years he had been researching a potter named John Bartlam who came to America from Staffordshire, England, in 1763, seeking a profitable trade in American made ceramics.
