Walhalla High School Improvement Council named winner of 2018 Riley Award for SIC Excellence 

COLUMBIA – The School Improvement Council (SIC) of Walhalla High School in the School District of Oconee County has been named the recipient of the 2018 Dick and Tunky Riley Award for School Improvement Council Excellence.

The award was presented Saturday afternoon during the SC School Improvement Council (SC-SIC) Annual Meeting at the South Carolina State Museum in Columbia.

The annual Riley Award for SIC Excellence was created in 2002 to highlight the significant contributions made to public education by the over 13,000 School Improvement Council members who volunteer in every public school in the state. The award is named in honor of the former SC Governor and US Secretary of Education and his late wife, recognizing the couple’s longstanding commitment to quality public education.

“Walhalla High SIC has done outstanding work well-deserving of this statewide honor,” said SC-SIC Board of Trustees Chair Amelia B. McKie. “Parents, educators, students, and community members working collaboratively on their School Improvement Councils are vital in making significant, positive, and lasting impact for our schools, our students, their families, and our communities.”

Art Mural

posted Mar 27, 2018, 4:30 AM by Jeanne Craig   [ updated Mar 27, 2018, 4:40 AM ]

The Gifted and Talented Art students and a select group from Art 1 and 2 recently worked with Fred Edgerton (former Seneca High Art teacher) to complete a mural in the fine arts hallway at Walhalla High School. The original design was drawn by Elena Carroll (Senior AP Art student). In the mural photo, you will see a paint brush on the right side of the design filled with the colors of the spectrum. These colors spill out of the mural design and reappear at the entrances of each fine arts classroom. The flow of colors into each classroom symbolizes the continuous flow of creativity going in and out of each arts area. The students and staff are all enjoying the added color that is brightening the fine arts area!
