JONESVILLE — Academics is the primary purpose of education and that’s why it’s crucial that academic achievement be publicly and formally recognized by the educational system.

That’s what happened recently when the Union County Board of School Trustees recognized Jonesville Elementary/Middle School students Jacob Gates and Parker Wright.

According to a statement issued by Jonesville Elementary/Middle School, the board recognized the students “for obtaining a Maximum Scale Score on state testing last year.”

The press release states that Gates, a 7th grader, received a Maximum Scale Score on the SC Ready Math test while Wright, a 6th grader, received a Maximum Scale Score on the SC Pass Social Studies test.

“We are so very proud of these students and their accomplishments,” JEMS Principal Kathy Taylor said.

Everyone should be proud of these young men who have demonstrated what study, hard work, and applying oneself can achieve. They are an example not only to their fellow students, but to the rest of us and should inspire everyone, whether they are in school or not, to always strive for excellence, not only in the classroom, but in life itself.
