Barnwell High School is extremely excited to be the first school in the county to have a registered youth apprenticeship program. This program provides students with opportunities to connect classroom experiences and knowledge to career-based internships. The youth apprenticeships are possible for both juniors and seniors who have completed specialized coursework in Project Lead the Way (PLTW) or Industrial Technology. Thanks to a partnership with Swiss Krono and Apprenticeship Carolina, BHS is pleased to announce that Seniors Nicholas Waller and Delonte Wright are the high school’s first two apprentices.
BHS Teacher Steve Andrews has been awarded a NFPA Fluid Power Challenge Grant in the amount of $400 to be used in his Computer Integrated Manufacturing course, which is one of Barnwell High’s four Project Lead the Way courses. Fluid power is a term that describes hydraulics and pneumatics, which both use a fluid (liquid or gas) to transmit power from one location to another. With hydraulics, the fluid is a liquid (usually oil), whereas pneumatics uses a gas (usually compressed air). Both are forms of power transmission, which is the technology of converting power to a more useable form and distributing it to where it is needed. The common methods of power transmission are electrical, mechanical, and fluid power.
Junior Lexi Thomason has been chosen as the Barnwell County Rotary Club’s Student of the Month for November. Lexi received this recognition because of her dedicated service tutoring and mentoring students.
Senior Softball Players Kelci Brown and Kyra Shuler have signed to play college softball. Kelci has signed with Erskine College and Kyra with Claflin University.

Senior Cheerleader Sommer Gibson has been selected for the Cheer Squad. Border Bowl V will be played at Lucy C. Laney Memorial Stadium on January 6th. The Border Bowl features the best football players and cheerleaders in the entire CSRA, with 100% of the proceeds from the game being given to the Ronald McDonald House.
