Honors and Achievements

The Lexington County School District One Board of Trustees recognizes the importance of the achievements of its students, staff, schools/departments and district. The board also recognizes community businesses, organizations, and individuals who make important contributions to our district or our schools.

At each board meeting during the Honors and Achievements section of the meeting, the board talks about their achievements. Click here to see a list of our most recent award recipients.
