The Kershaw County School District (KCSD) held its first in a series of public meetings on Phase II of its Facilities Equalization Plan at Lugoff-Elgin High School (L-EHS) Tuesday evening. KCSD Superintendent Dr. Frank Morgan said he thinks the district has proved it knows how to manage money and time with all of the extra projects it completed that were not originally a part of Phase I. In Phase I, the district made a partial HVAC upgrade at the Applied Technology Education Campus; completely renovated Blaney Elementary School (BES); made drainage and window replacements at the old Jackson School; built new athletic facilities and auditorium at Camden High School (CHS); built a new Camden Middle School; built a new Lugoff-Elgin Middle School (L-EMS); built new athletic facilities at L-EHS and replaced the roof, made HVAC upgrades, painted and re-paved the L-EHS Annex; made a complete renovation and addition of an art room, music room, multipurpose room and rest rooms at Midway Elementary School; and built a new athletic facility and auditorium at North Central High School (NCHS). In addition to those original projects, the district was able to take on several additional projects thanks to Director of Operations Billy Smith and Chief Financial Officer Donnie Wilson, Morgan said.
