Sheriff’s award presented to principal

June 28, 2012 by  

Nancy Turner, who is retiring from White Knoll Middle School in the Lexington area of South Carolina as its principal, was presented with the Sheriff’s Award on June 1 by James R. Metts, the Lexington County Sheriff. The Sheriff’s Department is most likely using poster printing and flyer printing to make those in the local community aware of the award, as it is the highest honor that the Sheriff can bestow on any individual.

Turner received a plaque for her support of law enforcement, which has been very strong during the 18 years for which she has been principal of the middle school. According to Sheriff Metts, Turner will be very much missed as she was extremely dedicated to the faculty and staff, as well as students. She was instrumental in leading efforts made by the middle school community, which included teachers, staff, students, and their parents, in purchasing a new fire truck to replace one that had been lost by the Fire Department of New York City during the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001.

Turner has been an educator for 36 years, during which time she has received many other awards, among which are the Middle Level Principal of the Year for South Carolina in 2008 by the Association of School Administrators for South Carolina and the State Principal of the Year by the National Association of Secondary School Principals from MetLife. The National Association of Elementary School Principals has also recognized her as a National Distinguished Principal.
