Batesburg-Leesville High School in Lexington County School District Three has been named as a semifinalist for the 2019-2020 Palmetto’s Finest awards.
B-L High School administrators completed an application for the award back in September. A panel of independent readers evaluated the applications, which were received from across the state, and recommended semifinalist schools for initial site visits. Members of the Palmetto’s Finest Awards Committee will visit the semifinalist schools over the course of the next few weeks and finalists for the award will be notified in January.
The South Carolina Association of School Administrators (SCASA) presents the Palmetto’s Finest awards each year to schools that offer the best in innovative, effective educational programs and that demonstrate “excellent instruction and outstanding leaders, augmented by strong family and community involvement and a supportive business community,” according to the SCASA website.
The Palmetto’s Finest Award is celebrating its 41st year and is one of the most coveted and respected awards among educators. Two elementary schools, one middle school and one high school are presented the award annually. B-L Elementary School was named as a Palmetto’s Finest winner back in 2018.
