Lexington District One held the district’s first Military Signing Day on Monday, May 20, at River Bluff High School.
Supported by family, friends and recruiters, students from Gilbert, Lexington, Pelion, River Bluff and White Knoll high schools signed a letter of intent stating their desire to join a branch of military service upon graduation.
The signees also heard guest speaker Major General Van McCarty, the 29th Adjutant General for South Carolina.
