The Pickens High JROTC Raider team won First Place overall in the Liberty JROTC Raider Meet. The team competed against 14 other schools.
Because we are committed to keeping our students safe behind the wheel, we have implemented a proactive program called Alive at 25 at all School District of Pickens County high schools. Students will not receive parking permits until they have successfully completed the course.
All upcoming classes are listed on the South Carolina Alive at 25 website: www.scaliveat25.org. Students may register online at www.scaliveat25.org or by calling the South Carolina National Safety Council office at 803-732-6778. During the registration process, students should specify the name of their own high schools so certificates can be sent to the proper schools. The staff at PHS cannot register your student for Alive at 25. You must do this through the phone number listed or online.

January 14, 2014 – 4:00 PM – 8:30 PM
