The S.C. Department of Education recognized 73 students from 29 school districts for 12 years of perfect attendance. State law allows students up to 10 absences per year, and seven Horry County Schools’ students never missed a day. HCS ranked second in the state for the number of students with perfect attendance, following Greenville County Schools, which is the largest school district in South Carolina.
HCS honorees are Crystal Meagan Pee, Aynor High School; Nicholas Andrew Rosaforte, HCS Early College High School; Hannah Catherine Edwards, Daniella Shawna Patrick and Alison Raina Soles, Loris High School; and Charles Hollis Whittington and Michael Everett Jones, St. James High School.
The S.C. Department of Education has recognized seniors with 12 years of perfect school attendance since 1979. Honorees receive certificates and congratulatory letters from State Superintendent of Education Mick Zais.
