Baron DeKalb (BDK) Elementary School Principal Betty Turner may not have had a straight path to her current position, but the winding road has led her to become Kershaw County School District’s 2013-2014 Principal of the Year. Turner is a Kershaw County native and Lugoff-Elgin High School graduate, who saw education as her best career path after she spent time working at television stations in Philadelphia, Pa. and Charlotte, N.C. March 6 will now be a date she remembers for the rest of her life, as her two children, Ebone and Nigel, traveled to BDK to celebrate the occasion with their mother. Turner inspired both of her children to go into education.
