The academic year has wrapped up for Lawrence County and students are off to enjoy a few months at home with their families before returning in the fall.
As we did yesterday, we would like to offer more congratulations to Lawrence County schools for some of their achievements in 2017-2018.

• To Madison Rummel, of Fairland West Elementary, whose essay on her pet, Liberty, won her the top spot in the Lawrence County Auditor’s Office’s “Top Dog” contest.

• To Ironton High School, for winning the countywide Ironmaster Quiz Bowl tournament at Ohio University Southern in March, and Fairland Middle School, who came in first at the middle school level event in January. Both events are sponsored by the Lawrence County Educational Service Center.
