ACE Award Nominations

ACE AwardsThe ACE (Advocates for Character and Education) Award is an annual award given to one male and one female 8th & 12th grade student from each of the Greenville County middle and high schools.  The award is designed to honor true "unsung heroes" who all too often are not recognized for their accomplishments.  The selection process focuses on identifying and selecting students who often go unnoticed for one reason or another, but who have accomplished great things in their community, church, or school.  ANYONE may nominate a student for this award!  Nomination deadline:  Mon, January 31, 2022

Also, keep in mind that the final report cards are mailed at the end of the school year. All address changes require proper documentation (two proofs of residency) to be presented to the school.
