WEST COLUMBIA, S.C. -- Forty-eight Lexington Two students are being honored as 2021-2022 Myrdis Walker Scholars.
The district program, established in 1990, recognizes African-American students in eighth through 12th grades who have demonstrated academic excellence. It is named for Myrdis Walker, who taught for many years at the former R. Earle Davis Elementary School in Lexington Two.
This year’s inductees from the district's two high schools and four middle schools include four Airport High students: Jaden Billie, Daniel Jeffries, Alicia Oree, and Ishun Yon.
An induction ceremony was held March 29 at the Lexington Two Innovation Center.
