If you've ever heard the cliché about walking miles to school every day (usually in the snow, uphill both ways), you know it's usually made out to be something of a challenge – a character builder, something today's kids just don't understand.

LCS had a hat trick in the world of art this month, winning three statewide awards from the North Carolina Art Education Association (NCAEA). Jody Stouffer, an art teacher at Lee County High School, and Judy McDonald, an art teacher at Greenwood Elementary, have been named secondary art educator of the year and elementary art educator of the year, respectively, by the NCAEA. Alongside them, Dr. Andy Bryan, the district's superintendent, was named a NCAEA “friend of the arts.”
Please help us keep our children safe! We have 108 buses on the road. These buses travel 4750 miles and transport 5900 students each day.
