The Georgetown County School District honored its top employees for the 2017-18 school year by unveiling their portraits at the School Board meeting on Oct. 3.
The three employees who were honored were: Dr. Bethany Giles, principal at Carvers Bay High School, Administrator of the Year; Jennifer Hudson of Pleasant Hill Elementary School, Teacher of the Year; and Darles Camp of Kensington Elementary School, Support Staff of the Year.
Giles was named Administrator of the Year while she was principal at Brown's Ferry Elementary School. She was named Carvers Bay principal in June.
A graduate of South Carolina State, Giles earned master’s degrees from The Citadel and South Carolina. She taught and was the assistant principal at Rosemary Middle School before becoming principal at Brown's Ferry.
Hudson is a 2006 graduate of Andrews High School alumna and earned a bachelor of arts in elementary education and a master of education in educational leadership from Coastal Carolina University.
Camp is in food service management at Kensington.
In other business, the School Board approved a contract with Red Iron Architects of Charleston for renovations to the Howard Adult Center.
The project was part of the $165 million bond referendum passed by voters last year.
The School Board also canceled two upcoming meetings due to holidays and shuffled the dates of two others.
The meeting scheduled for Nov. 21 was canceled due to that being the week of Thanksgiving.
The meeting scheduled for Dec. 19 was canceled due to that being the week of Christmas.
In early 2018, the board will meet on Jan. 9 and Jan. 23. The original dates were Jan. 2 and Jan. 16.
The School District also announced this week that Oct. 27, which was on the schedule as a staff development day, will now be a half day of school to make up for time lost during Irma.
