Two students at Lady’s Island Elementary School were surprised during the school’s academic celebration with new bikes. Janyia Wilson, a third grader, and Benjamin Baughman, a fourth grader, bought raffle tickets for the bikes using magic dollars they earned for good behavior. The magic dollars are part of the Positive Behavior Incentive. The Holiday Inn of Beaufort donates two bikes each quarter to the school as incentives for excellent behavior. Lady’s Island Elementary is so thankful for the Holiday Inn’s generosity and their commitment to support Beaufort County Schools.
