These Students are TERRIFIC!
Students representing elementary and intermediate schools from across Spartanburg County were recognized for their good character and citizenship last month at the Kiwanis Club’s annual Terrific Kid of the Year luncheon. The following students represented District One at this year's banquet:

Campobello-Gramling School - Julia Rose Harmon
Holly Springs-Motlow Elementary - Dalton Mahaffey
Inman Elementary School - Leah Shnitser
Inman Intermediate School - Rylan Green
New Prospect Elementary - Julianna Coates
O.P. Earle Elementary - Sydney Price

Terrific Kids is a student-recognition program that promotes character development, self-esteem, and perseverance. “TERRIFIC” is an acronym for Thoughtful, Enthusiastic, Respectful, Responsible, Inclusive, Friendly, Inquisitive, and Capable.   Students work with their classroom teacher to establish goals for positive behavior, peer relationships, attendance, or school work.  Congratulations to this incredible group of students and thank you for representing District One so positively!
District One Students Earn Second Place in JA Titan Challenge 

District One students, Tek Stephens and Joe Mulet, participated in the Junior Achievement Titan Challenge and Skills Workshops, claiming second place and earning a $2,025 scholarship! 

Approximately 100 students, in teams of 2-4 members, applied learned business concepts during a competitive virtual simulation to make decisions that affect a company’s bottom line. The competition is uniquely designed to unleash student creativity, test leadership skills, necessitate collaboration, critical thinking, and individual and group decision-making, as well as demonstrating the competitive nature of the free enterprise system.

Only the first and second place teams are able to advance to National competition. Congratulations on this outstanding achievement and for representing District One!

Operation Stand Down

Students from Landrum High School JROTC and Student Council volunteered last month at the recently renamed SFC Charles A. Judge Jr. Memorial Stand Down. This is an annual one day event for veterans and their family members.

A variety of free services, including physical & mental health screenings, social services, employment opportunities, activities and goods are provided in one location.  While the focus is homeless veterans and those at-risk of homelessness, all veterans are welcome.

Battle of the Brains

Students from Campobello-Gramling School are the new champions in the upstate competition, The Battle of the Brains. This is an upstate competition of middle school students who go head-to-head to answer on-the-spot questions.

The championship game of the Battle of the Brains was between Hughes Academy of Greenville and Campobello-Gramling School. CGS was represented by Clark Bagwell, Jacob Cheek, and Colby Garner. 

Battle of the Brains has been held for more than 30 years among 24 middle schools from Spartanburg, Union, Cherokee and Greenville counties. Teams compete for trophies and cash prizes.

Congratulations to the CGS team!
