Support Staff Person of the Year 2021

support staff of the year award

The Darlington County School District is pleased to introduce the Support Staff Person of the Year award!

DCSD support staff are some of the most dedicated, hardworking individuals you will ever meet. Often working behind the scenes, they make sure the district and schools operate smoothly, and our students learn in clean, nurturing environments. They care for our students, support our teachers, maintain our buildings, prepare nutritional meals, drive our buses, and manage the thousand and one administrative tasks necessary to keep our schools running.

Help us recognize these heroes by nominating a support staff person in your school for Support Staff Person of the Year. 

Every school will elect one Support Staff Person of the Year; then, a committee will select a District Support Staff Person of the Year. That person will be announced at the 2021 Convocation. All our Support Staff People of the Year will win $100 and serve as key advisors to the superintendent through the Superintendent's Support Staff Cabinet.

Nominating someone is EASY! 

You may only nominate someone that works at your school. To do so, go to or follow the link on the district website under FOR STAFF. To nominate a deserving support staff person, you only need to answer one question: How does this person stand out above all others in how they impact your school?

To be eligible, a person must be a full-time employee working in a non-exempt, non-certified position with at least two years of experience in his/her current job. Eligible positions include - but are not limited to - bus drivers, custodial, clerical, food service, classroom support, nurses, social workers, family facilitators, para-educators, administrative support, and classroom support. For more information, contact Audrey Childers at 843-398-2283 or

The deadline to nominate someone is May 20, 2021.
