Congratulations to Lady’s Island Teachers of the Year.  Each year, in an effort to recognize some of the many amazing teachers in the Beaufort County public schools, the teachers in each school select a single teacher as their “Teacher of the Year.” Selected this year to represent Lady’s Island public schools are Estee Williams, Beaufort High; Melissa Pender, Coosa Elementary; Amy Trask, Lady’s Island Elementary; and Carolyn Dennis, Lady’s Island Middle. Congratulations to each of these professional educators. As the school year nears completion LIBPA extends its appreciation to each and every teacher in Lady’s Island’s schools, both public and private, for your dedication to excellence, high standards, concern and compassion for the children of this community.

Is There Another Postal Unit in Lady’s Island’s Future? Over the past few years the Lady’s Island community had enjoyed the availability of a contract postal unit being co-located with The Paper Company in the Food Lion Shopping Center. With the closing of the Paper Company, the contract postal unit also closed. Mr. Rick Reed, Beaufort Postmaster, confirms that efforts by the Postal Service continue in an effort to find a business on Lady’s Island that will serve as the contract host for a postal unit. Local Lady’s Island businesses that have a serious interest in acting as the host for a contract postal unit are encouraged to call 904-858-6504. Thanks to the Postal Service and Postmaster Reed for providing the Lady’s Island community an opportunity to once again enjoy the convenience of an “on island” postal unit.
