420 Clover students' eyes, hearing checked

CLOVER -- The River Hills Lions recently screened ninth-grade students at Clover High School for visual and hearing acuity, helping the school nurse meet the South Carolina directive to screen the entire ninth grade for visual acuity.

On Sept. 26, the S.C. Lions Charitable Services Health Screening Unit and volunteers from the River Hills Lions were able to provide the visual and hearing acuity test for 165 students.

With the help of the Junior High School nurse, however, another 100 students were visually screened.

The student total for the two-day screening was 420 students.

River Hills Lions and school Head Nurse Gale Stewart are already planning next year's visit of the HSU for the 2009-2010 school year. The next Lions meeting is breakfast at 8 a.m. Saturday at the River Hills Country Club. For more information about joining the Lions or being a guest, call (803) 631-3543 or visit
