The backbone of any community is its schools. Good schools bring families to the area, provide a platform for a stable economy, and help the next generation reach their highest potential. Horry County Schools will host our quarterly meeting. Even if you do not have children in our local schools, you are still paying school taxes so come learn more about the operations of our local school district, the incredible work and achievements that are happening in our schools, and the many volunteer opportunities that exist for you to get involved with the youth in our community. Stantec Design and Consulting was granted Award of Excellence for the St. James Intermediate School in Burgess.
