National Honor Society students at North Augusta High School led elected officials on a tour of the school Oct. 8 so they could see the needs of the school.
The tour was organized by the honor society and the School Improvement Council to show guests why a 1-cent sales tax is needed to help fund renovations at North Augusta High.
The Aiken County School Board will meet with legislators Nov. 12 to ask them for legislation that would allow a vote on the sales tax in 2014.
Guests were treated to a lunch prepared by the school’s culinary art students.
Invited guests included: Will Williams, director of Aiken/Edgefield Economic Development Board; Todd Glover, North Augusta city administrator; Tom Young, R-Aiken; Sen. Shane Massey; Bill Hixon, R-North Augusta; Ronnie Young, Aiken County Council chairman; Sandy Haskell, Aiken County Council; Chuck Smith, Aiken County Council; Pat Carpenter, North Augusta City Council; Jimmy Adams, North Augusta City Council; Ray Fleming, Aiken County School Board; Keith Liner, Aiken County School Board; Beth Everitt, superintendent of Aiken County Schools; and Tim Yarborough, assistant superintendent of high schools.
