The Greenwood School District 50 Board of Trustees joined the S.C. State Senate in honoring Dru T. James, a longtime supporter and advocate of public education.


Senators Floyd Nicholson and Billy O'Dell attended Monday's board meeting to present James with a resolution passed the senate in January. The senate resolution recognizes James for her decades-long service to Greenwood County and the state of South Carolina.


James served on the District 50 Board of Trustees from 1993 to 2008. She was a past board chair, vice chair and secretary. James served with the S.C. School Board Association where she was a past president, secretary, treasurer and region director.


James has served on the S.C. State Board of Education since 2010. She was chair of the Standards, Learning, and Accountability Committee from 2011 to 2012. James was appointed by Dr. Jim Rex, state superintendent of education, as chair of the Task Force on Resources for a Competitive South Carolina in 2007.


Current District 50 chair Shell Dula said James has been a great advocate for public education.


"(James) has done a wonderful job for many years," Dula said. "To this day, people say, 'Dru would have done this' or 'Dru would have done that.' I certainly appreciate her many years of service to the schools here in Greenwood and across the state."
