Beechwood Middle School students achieve legislative victory
Students champion law recognizing middle-level education month

LEXINGTON, S.C. — The Beechwood Middle School Constitution Club is celebrating a remarkable achievement – the passage of a bill they championed last year officially designating March as Middle-Level Education Month in South Carolina.

To commemorate this success, Representative Paula Calhoon will visit Beechwood Middle School on Monday, March 25, at 4:15 p.m., to present the club, led by teacher Jason McCullough, with a copy of the signed law. Beechwood Middle is located at 1340 Highway #378 in Lexington.

This law recognizes the critical role middle-level education plays in student success. The Beechwood Middle School Constitution Club's initiative demonstrates the power of student engagement in the legislative process.

Media is invited to attend this special event and capture the students' achievement.
