The 2014 ACT scores have been released by the SC Department of Education! Congratulations to the Abbeville County School District, their teachers and students for raising the composite test scores from last year’s 19.0 to 21.0! Incredible job! Also, Anderson County School District 5 raised theirs as well from 20.5 to 20.9! This is great news for our college and career-bound students! Way to go!
Went to the Veterans Motorcycle rally today. Met a lot of great folks from all over the country! It was quite a scene to see all those motorcycles come streaming into town! God bless our Veterans! They are raising funds for scholarships for the children of our fallen soldiers!
Ashley Bond was the guest of honor at a reception at the Village Grill in Abbeville. She got 2 medals (a silver and a bronze) at the Special Olympics held in New Jersey. Although she did not receive a gold medal, she has enough gold in her heart to go around! And, plenty of delicious cake!
Iva celebrated Spring with their town-wide yard sale in Sat., June 14th. I met many nice folks there and couldn’t resist buying some things while there. I also got to get some fine food from C&J Catering – courtesy of Chris Crawford and family.
I was proud to participate in the Ashley Bond ceremony at the Opera House in Abbeville on Friday, June 13. She is heading to the Special Olympics in New Jersey to compete in Bocce. It was a touching and, at the same time, exciting ceremony. Ashley was honored with a proclamation from the City of Abbeville from Mayor Sherwood, another from County Council and its Chairman Claude Thomas and a Certificate from the State House as well as the State Senate. She also arrived in great style with the help of the Abbeville Fire Department!
I was honored to be the keynote speaker at the Memorial Day service on the steps of Abbeville County Courthouse this morning. It was a touching and solemn program. Well organized by our veterans. Many great sentiments were shared. Thank you all for your service to our great country!
