Last week, Kershaw County School District students enjoyed Spring Break plus an extra day off Monday because of a teacher work day.

The weeks after Spring Break mark a rush to the finish line for the school year. Here at the Chronicle-Independent, we know that’s coming thanks to three events we cover almost back-to-back-to-back: Thursday, the district will name its Teacher of the Year during its annual gala in Camden High School’s auditorium; Monday, Upchurch & Jowers Insurance Agency and the district will host their annual All-County Academic Banquet at Bethesda Presbyterian Church; and just days later, on Thursday, May 2, the 2019 class of the Junior Leadership Kershaw County, made up of students from all three district high schools plus Camden Military Academy, will hold its banquet at 833 South Broad.

In addition to these three worthwhile celebrations of outstanding students and teachers, graduation isn’t really that far away on June 1. We’re only talking six weeks, folks, and the Class of 2019 will cross their respective stages.

So, congratulations in advance to this year’s graduating seniors, as well as the various schools’ teachers of the year candidates; the All-County Academic Team students; and the students making up the 2019 Junior Leadership class.

You have all done the county proud and we can’t wait to see what you do next!
