Thirteen students chosen as the 2017 Junior Scholars were recognized at the Edgefield County School Board meeting on Tuesday, March 14, 2017. The South Carolina Junior Scholars Program was developed in the South Carolina Department of Education to identify eighth grade students with exceptional academic talent.

Students, parents, and relatives filled the board room.  Superintendent Dr. Robert Maddox congratulated the students and explained the criteria for eligibility.  The criteria included meeting the required eligibility score on the PSAT/NMSQT or the requirements of Duke University’s Talent Identification Program (TIP).

The purpose of the Junior Scholars program is to identify and provide opportunities that will facilitate their intellectual growth, broaden their interests, and promote scholastic achievement. The Junior Scholars exemplify the traits of the World Class Citizenship Skills identified by the district through their development of thinking, personal and relational skills.

The Junior Scholars success is a result of their focus and dedication, their teachers’ impact and the support each of them receive at home.
