What's Happening in Scotland County Schools
'Of the Year' staff celebrated



On May 20, 2015 in the Belk Center on the campus of St. Andrews University, Scotland County Schools honored their 47 'of the year' employees. The Teachers of the Year, Teacher Assistants of the Year, Bus Drivers of the Year, and Employees of the Year were celebrated as true leaders in their schools as well as in the district. Superintendent Dr. Ron Hargrave praised those being recognized by reminding them that, "Your colleagues have decided that you’re the person who should be designated as an ‘of the year’ person and that says a lot about what they think about you, To me, it says that they think of you as a leader, so take that leadership role that they have given to you, embrace it and continue to a difference.”
