North Augusta High School's School Improvement Council is one of nine schools statewide named to the S.C.-SIC's 2013 Honor Roll.The announcement from the organization recognizes schools "for significant efforts to foster civic engagement in public education," a news release from the S.C.

All nine schools will be eligible for the S.C.-SIC's annual Dick and Tunky Riley Award for School Improvement Council Excellence. The award is named for the former South Carolina governor and U.S. Secretary of Education and his late wife. It was created in 2002 to recognize the contributions made by the 14,000-plus local School Improvement Council members in the state.
The other Honor Schools are: Beck Academy Middle SIC (Greenville County Schools); Blaney Elementary SIC (Kershaw County School District); Brushy Creek Elementary SIC (Greenville County Schools); C.A. Johnson High SIC (Richland School District 1); Eagle Nest Elementary SIC (Dorchester School District 2); Ebinport Elementary SIC (Rock Hill School District 3); Okatie Elementary SIC (Beaufort County School District) and Richland Northeast High SIC (Richland School District 2).
The School Improvement Council at North Augusta High has created a momentum that principal Todd Bornscheuer hasn't experienced before, he said in the news release.
"This talented team of community volunteers, students, parents and faculty has North Augusta High being mentioned as one of the most cutting-edge schools in the state," he said. "Our mantra this year is 'I believe...,' and this team has our community believing the sky is truly the limit."
