Lugoff-Elgin High School (L-EHS) received a $500 donation from the Lugoff Optimist Club Wednesday as part of an effort to establish a skeet shooting club at the school. L-EHS Principal Tommy Gladden said the idea for the club’s creation was the result of a brainstorming session between several students at the school, teacher Charlene Trapp and her husband, Allen Trapp, assistant county administrator for Kershaw County. “I put the students who were interested in the club in touch with the Trapp family, and they kind of did the research and Allen did some leg-work on it and now we’re putting this into gear,” Gladden said.
