All three Kershaw County high schools were among 72 high schools in the state to be recognized for achievement on either the ACT or SAT college entrance exams, according to the S.C. Department of Education. In their second year, the ACT/SAT Performance Improvement Awards (ASPI) were created to salute schools that showed high performance on the ACT or SAT and those that have had rapid or continuous improvement in their scores. Lugoff-Elgin High School was recognized at the Summa Cum Laude level for Excellent Improvement on both the SAT and ACT. Camden High School was honored at the Summa Cum Laude level with an Excellent Improvement award on the ACT while North Central High School received a Cum Laude honor for Excellent Performance on the SAT. “I congratulate these schools for what they have accomplished,” said State Superintendent of Education Jim Rex.
