Fifteen Kershaw County schools -- six more than last year -- were among 853 schools statewide recognized by the S.C. Department of Education for academic achievement and closing achievement gaps in 2011. This is the district’s best performance in the 11 years of operation for the Palmetto Gold and Silver awards program; previously the greatest number of local schools honored in one school year was nine. “I am thrilled with this news,” said Kershaw County School District Superintendent Dr. Frank Morgan.
