South Cobb High School recognized Community service in the 1st Annual Service Above Self Banquet. THe SC Interact Club hosted the banquet which recognized all seniors recieving their Community Service Cords. At the banquet awards for The Community Service Staff member Award was given to Ms. Rhonda Sykes ; the Adult Volunteer of the Year to Mr. Randy Cole; and The Community Service Club of the year was the Student Government Association. SC students, staff, families and our friends at South Cobb Rotary took time to recognize putting service to others over service to self.
On Friday SC hosted an event which has come to be called the Special Needs Student Prom. Speech teacher Terry Johnston came up with the idea 3 years ago to have a Prom for the Special Needs students who can not make it to Prom due to transportation and supervision issues. The event has grown and this year hosted students from Campbell, Pebblebrook, and South Cobb. SC student mentors also dressed up to serve food and dance with students.
South Cobb Students are OUTSTANDING!!!
