On October 24th, in Barnwell County, South Carolina, the Pendleton FFA Soil and Land Evaluation team took top honors with a historic team score and were named the South Carolina State FFA Champions. The Pendleton team that consisted of Jason Smith, Katherine Vanadore, Melanie Mullikin, Maggie Barnett and Justin Allen who competed against other South Carolina teams from across the state. What made the Pendleton victory so impressive was that they were competing in a geographical region with soil origination and farming practices very different from that of Anderson County. Katherine Vanadore was named the second highest scoring individual with 233 points out of a possible 240. Jason Smith and Maggie Barnett actually tied for the highest scoring individual position with 234 points individually out of a possible 240. The Pendleton team will compete in the 2016 National Land and Range Judging Competition in Oklahoma City next May. Please congratulate these individual students for their stunning performance.

On October 7, 2015, students, parents, faculty, staff and community members participated in the Anderson 4 first ever Color Run: Colors for a Cause: The Force Awakens. Students were challenged to raise donations for several different program areas at Pendleton High School. Donations were made by texts, online and sending in funds to the school. These funds were used to help offset the cost of field trips and out-of-state experiences, supplement classroom resources, and provide student rewards for positive behavior. All students at PHS received a color run t-shirt. For students who participated in raising donations of $100, they earned a $25 Grady's Outdoor Gift Card. The top three students who had the highest donations for the fundraiser received a: (1st) Galaxy Tablet, (2nd) $100 gift card to Academy Sports, and (3rd) $50 gift card to Academy Sports.
Congratulations to Kevin Reed our 1st place winner of an awesome Galaxy Tablet and to Caroline Gilmer, earning a $25 Grady's Outdoor Gift Card.
