The Kershaw County Board of Trustees voted unanimously Tuesday to delay a discussion on where to place a consolidated Bethune/Mt. Pisgah elementary school. The vote came after 12 people spoke out against the consolidation of the schools with at least 200 people filling up one half of Mt. Pisgah Elementary School's (MPES) auditorium where the meeting took place.
The Kershaw County Board of School Trustees will continue its facilities discussion tonight in possible preparation of a ballot referendum for November's general election. Trustees will focus on whether or not to revisit a 15-year penny sales tax as a funding source for a list of facility-related projects. The board will also receive an update from staff about possible locations for a combined Bethune and Mt. Pisgah elementary school along S.C. 341. Tonight's meeting is being held at Mt. Pisgah Elementary School.
This past semester, Lugoff-Elgin High School (L-EHS) added a furry four-legged companion to its community. Eighteen-month-old Ginger knows the way to her room in the L-EHS library where she accompanies her owner, Donna Garber, during some week days. Ginger is a reading dog and patiently sits while students read to her to practice their reading skills.
