  • Congratulations / Achievements
    Congratulations to FBLA State Winners!
    Another successful weekend for my Business Leaders! It was the largest FBLA State conference with more than 1100 participants which made the competition even more challenging this year.  Please congratulate the following students:
    Star Garcia won SECOND place in Advertising at FBLA State competition...and
    Cameron Sweeney and Christian Elvis for winning FIRST PLACE in Entrepreneurship at FBLA State competitions... they are sweeping the entrepreneurship events for South Carolina. They won FIRST PLACE for States in DECA and FBLA as well as our VE Business. 

    Tri-Service JROTC Field Meet_SJHS JROTC Champions!
    We competed against 8 other JROTC programs and took home the 1st place trophy for the 2nd year in a row! It came down to the final event (tug of war) to determine the winner and we dominated!
    We placed 1st in the Trail Run and the Tug of War,
    2nd in the Challenge Course (included a mud crawl)
    3rd in Primitive Weapons (spear throwing)
    And didn't do that great in Fire Starting and Land Navigation (they got lost again) :-).
    Ms. Cole and I told the Cadets if we won, we'd go thru the mud crawl, so afterwards we went thru the mud. Additionally, please congratulate Christopher Walker for winning the Individual Knockout competition.  They literally did drill for 15 minutes non-stop to determine the winner (final 2 were drilling for 10 minutes, they were dizzy).
