Lexington, SC — River Bluff High School is gearing up for a festive celebration on December 12th and 13th, from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm, as it hosts the 11th annual Ella’s Stuff A Stocking. This beloved tradition, which aims to bring holiday happiness to children in need, has become a cornerstone event at the school.

Established in memory of Ella Shumate, who tragically lost her life in a drunk driving accident in 2011, Ella’s Stuff A Stocking is a school-wide initiative led by Devin Shumate, Ella’s father and a dedicated Social Studies teacher at River Bluff High School.
