The motto at Lugoff Elgin Middle School is “Understanding hearts and positive attitudes make a GREAT school” and the week of Thanksgiving, LEMS students put their motto into action. Miss Pearl, a former custodian, lost her house and all its contents to a fire, and students decided the Thanksgiving season was the perfect time to show Miss Pearl their gratitude. Lead by the Beta Club, the student body participated in a “Compassionate Competition” by bringing food items to donate to Miss Pearl in support of either Carolina or Clemson.
