Buddy Bridges Receives Spirit Of 56 Award At LCD56 Board Of Trustees Meeting

The Laurens County School District 56 Board of Trustees meeting for September was held last night at Clinton High School.  During that meeting a Spirit of 56 Award was presented.

Superintendent Dr. David O’Shields said the award is presented to “someone  who embodies  all that is Laurens County School District 56”.  He then called Buddy Bridges, the voice of the Red Devils to the front of the auditorium.  Dr. O’Shields called attention to Buddy’s hard work in organizing the celebration of the 100th anniversary of Clinton High School football.

It should be noted that most recipients of the Spirit of 56 Award are employees of the district.  Buddy, as a dedicated alumnus of the district,  works as an insurance agent but expends tremendous effort in supporting District 56, its athletic programs, its academic goals and its proud traditions.
