The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the SC Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.

Congratulation to all the graduates from CUSD high schools.

My special recognition goes to Kiara Harris from San Juan Hills High School for her talent in poetry and the poem she wrote in SC Times about her four years of high school life.

Her poem resonates with the graduates of 2022 and beyond.
