Instead of the usual convocation in the gym at Marlboro County High School, Marlboro County School District teachers, staff, and administration used Zoom for the 2020 Back to School Rally.
Superintendent Dr. Gregory McCord said it was a chance to inspire and encourage teachers, staff, and administration of the district.
“Every day we have been allowed to do something that not many others have the opportunity to do — to educate,” he said. “Educate not just the young people coming to us from Marlboro County but educate everyone in our community and life. This is truly a calling.”
District employees and teachers and staff from each school still had a chance to display their colors and enthusiasm for the 2020-21 school year.
While everyone was on Zoom, McCord, Board Chairman Larry McNeil, and Board member Rev. James Smith along with district officials headed out to surprise the Classified Staff of the Year and Teacher of the Year with flowers and a check.
