CHAPIN, SC (WIS) - Chapin High School is one of two Midlands-area schools who are finalists for the Palmetto's Finest Awards, issued by the South Carolina Association of School Administrators.
Principal Dr. Akil Ross says the honor results from involvement by the entire community.
"I think it's really a community effort," he said. "We have a very supportive community that provides us the resources to be successful. Our parents, our churches, our community, civic and service organizations all pulled together and I think that creates a climate."
