New student award springs from LCSD relationship focus
The Office of the Superintendent of Lee County School District (LCSD) has rolled out an initiative to honor students who have demonstrated outstanding service or made exceptional voluntary contributions to the LCSD community. The LCSD Citizen of the Year honor will be bestowed on one student at each school. Those students will qualify for the district-level award to be presented at Class Night of 2020.
At the opening ceremony this year, LCSD Superintendent Dr. Wanda Andrews announced her intent to implement a district-wide focus on relationships throughout the LCSD community. As a result, when selecting the recipient for this award, the Committee will look for a student who, among other attributes, continually gives of his or her time, dedicating their talents to the betterment of the school community voluntarily.
“This student will possess the qualities we hope to instill in all of our students,” says Andrews. “He or she will have the strength of character and courage to do what is right.”
Students must be of impeccable integrity; follow the rules; treat others with respect; have no behavior referrals; helpful to others; kind and responsible; have a strong work ethic; and be active in school to be considered for the award.
Applications will be accepted at the District Office beginning January 2020 until April 15, 2020. You may mail applications to LCSD, 310 Roland Street, Bishopville, S.C., 29010. This award is kept as a surprise to the recipient.
