The Cherokee County School District celebrated outstanding school volunteers and business and community partners at the annual CCSD Partner of the Year and Volunteer of the Year Recognition Ceremony. The ceremony on Thursday evening in the school board auditorium honored a Partner of the Year and a Volunteer of the Year for each individual school and center. The evening included the surprise announcement of the CCSD Partner of the Year and Volunteer of the Year selected from that pool of honorees.
Cherokee County School District’s School Nutrition culinary specialist has earned national recognition for excellence in her role! Jessica Emmett, whose many responsibilities include developing recipes for CCSD’s school menus and overseeing the district’s farm to school initiative, was named a Tray Blazer winner by General Mills.
The Cherokee County School Board at its regular meeting tonight, Feb. 15, 2024, voted to officially hire Dr. Mary Elizabeth Davis as the county’s next Superintendent of Schools.
