On Wednesday, August 16, 2017, the Marlboro County School District held their annual Convocation. All employees merged upon the gym where they heard words of encouragement and unity from School Board Members, acting Superintendent Dr. John Lane and keynote speaker Dr. David Vawter from Winthrop University. The theme of the event was "Every Child, Every Day, Whatever it Takes". Each school had the opportunity to display their talents and express their excitement for the upcoming year. Members of the Gifted and Talented Summer Camp Chorus entertained with several selections. The 2017-2018 Teacher-of-the-Year, Mr. Wayne Usher was announced and long-time employee Ms. Dottie Hahn was recognized for her fifty plus years of dedication (and she is still working). Door prizes were awarded to the lucky winners, then lunch from Shealy's BBQ was enjoyed by everyone.

After lunch, professional development was the focus with all district employees attending sessions which pertained to their specific area of employment.
