The Oconee County School District’s school resource officer’s program will receive The 2017 South Carolina Exemplary School Resource Officer’s Program Award given by the Moving Forward Together National Summit Planning Team. Through a vigorous vetting process the South Carolina Human Affairs Commission selected the Oconee County Program as one of only three state programs to be recognized.

The primary purpose of the Moving Forward Together National Summit is to improve race relations and to strengthen positive relations between African-Americans, Latinos and other people of color with the institutions entrusted to advance, educate, nurture, protect and serve all citizens. The Summit convenes in Columbia on June 12th and 13th at the Metropolitan Convention Center. The awards program and celebration will take place on Tuesday, June 13th. School and law enforcement personnel are encouraged to attend.
