As clean-up efforts continue at North Central High School in Kershaw County following a tornado that left millions of dollars in damage, Lexington County School District Three is launching a “Panthers to Knights Love Campaign” to help raise money for the school’s staff and students in the wake of the devastation. On January 11th, an EF-2 tornado with 130 mph winds ripped through the school, leaving behind significant wreckage and forcing staff and students to finish out the school year in one of Kershaw County School District’s old vocational buildings.
While the Kershaw County School District has identified North Central High School’s needs in terms of supplies, Lexington Three wanted to ensure that the school was not inundated with items it had already received. Therefore, Lexington Three decided to launch a “Panthers to Knights Love Campaign” themed around the upcoming Valentine’s Day holiday. Lexington Three staff, students and members of the Batesburg-Leesville community can make monetary donations (cash only, please) to the campaign at the front offices of Lexington Three’s schools, the Lifelong Learning Center and the District Office. The “Panthers to Knights Love Campaign” will run through Friday, February 7th, with the goal of Lexington Three presenting a lump sum check to North Central High School sometime around Valentine’s Day.
Anyone with questions regarding the campaign can contact Mackenzie Taylor, Lexington Three’s Director of Public Information, at 803-532-1751.
