New Wallace school construction moving along

Work is progressing on the new Wallace Elementary/Middle School that is under construction on Highway 9. While this summer's drought has created problems in other areas, it has benefited the construction in that there have been very few rain-related delays. Pictured above is a view of the main front entrance of the new school. Marlboro County voters in November 2012 overwhelmingly supported a $20 million bond referendum, and penny sales tax, to replace the old Wallace Elementary/Middle School. Ground was broken in August 2014. The school is expected to be completed in December 2015, with students and staff moving in over the Christmas break.      (Photo by Lynn McQueen)

McColl's Angela Branton named county Teacher of the Year

The Marlboro County School District has announced the district winner for this year’s Teacher of the Year award. The Teachers of the Year for each school and the district are usually recognized at the convocation, which was canceled this year because of safety concerns.  
The district's Teacher of the Year represents the Marlboro County School District in vying to be State Teacher of the Year.  
Becoming District Teacher of the Year is a three-step process that begins in May, when school-level Teachers of the Year are selected by their peers.  Those wishing to compete for District Teacher of the Year submit detailed applications by the end of July.   These applications are then reviewed by a selection committee which determines the winner.
