2017 Lexington County Green Step School Awards
Lexington, SC - At DHEC’s recent “Take Action Today” Workshop on 20 June, 49 schools in 12 counties and their 37 mentors who have worked to established over 200 model quality projects were recognized. Students are learning, doing and teaching others how to conserve, protect and restore their local environment.
