Rock Hill’s top students and teachers got some recognition Thursday at the annual Rock Hill Education Awards breakfast.
Hosted by the York County Regional Chamber of Commerce, the breakfast at the Baxter Hood Center recognizes academic excellence at public and private schools in the Rock Hill area.
Rick Norwood, chairman of the chamber’s awards committee, said it was inspiring to hear the life plans of the top students from each Rock Hill high school.
“When I got out of high school, I had no clue what I was going to do,” he said. “They have these outstanding student plans... they’re very driven.”
The ceremony also shines a spotlight on local businesses that support Rock Hill schools.
“It shows the connection between the business community and the Rock Hill school district,” Norwood said. “These businesses are sponsors not only of the awards, but of a lot of things going on in the school district.”
