Senior Service Project


Brent Carraway & Elliott Kissam

The 61 members of the senior class spent the school day on October 14, while the rest of the high school was taking the PSAT, performing a community service project for United Ministries of Sumter. They loaded and unloaded seven pick-up truck loads full of bottled water donated by the Santee Baptist Association, sorted flood relief supplies, and organized flood buckets filled with cleaning items. The project was coordinated by Mrs. Laura Barr and Mr. Glen Rector. Each year the seniors set a class goal of community service hours that they would like to complete before graduation, and the Class of 2016 has set a goal of 3,400 service hours. While the school sponsors two service days for the seniors, the students will perform community service hours on their own in order to meet the goal of nearly 55 hours per person.
