Beaufort Co. fifth graders make promise to graduate


Beaufort Co. students, parents, community leaders, teachers and school administrators packed the cafeteria at Pritchardville Elementary School Monday to watch the fifth grade class make a promise to one day wear a graduation cap and gown.

The fifth graders and their guests are part of a nationwide effort to increase high school graduation rates called Grad Nation.

Parents who attended the luncheon are pledging to help their children achieve graduation and eventually pursue a career. 

Graduation rates in Beaufort Co. we're just shy of 70 percent last year.
