Kershaw County is a school district that is thriving with the help of the wonderful people of the community. As a senior, I have gone to school in Kershaw County my entire life, and I have been blessed with ample opportunities for success. Beginning in kindergarten, the teachers in Kershaw County School District have encouraged each student to love learning. I firmly believe that a love of knowledge is a key to success later in life! I know that the lessons I have learned in Kershaw County will be carried with me throughout life, and I could not be more thankful! With the help of teachers, faculty, parents, and town citizens, I know that myself and others were enriched with a tremendously beneficial education. Not only have they raised successful learners, but they have also given rise to the future leaders of America! I could not ask for a better school community!

My mom and my dad both are graduates of Lugoff Elgin High. The closeness of the community and the involvement of parents make this school and the entire district an awesome place to raise kids and attend all schools in Kershaw County. People just simply graduate, leave for college, come home and start their families. What an awesome place to live and attend school!
As a student attending Lugoff-Elgin high school in Kershaw County, I believe that the school excels in creating a safe environment, culturally diverse classes, hiring experienced teachers, and keeping the campus safe. Although this district is exceeds the expectations in these categories, they lack in a variety of activities as well as healthy food and updated facilities.
