One of the enduring highlights of the year at Seneca Middle School is our program honoring local veterans.  While the coronavirus may have kept us from holding an in-person ceremony, nothing could keep us from honoring these special people in some way.  Thus, this year we have put together a special Veterans Day video program we hope you enjoy with us.  Click on the button below to access the video.

Veterans Day

Lee Ann Stephens, Stephanie Shepherd, and Rick Bagby
At a ceremony recognizing teachers, support employees and volunteers across the district, Seneca Middle School's Stephanie Shepherd was named the SDOC Teacher of the Year! The Special Education teacher and Director of the SMS DEN After-School Program is a most worthy recipient of this honor and exemplifies a truly great teacher.  She maintains a calm, warm manner while holding her students to her standards and stretching them beyond anything they ever believed of themselves.  Shepherd will now represent Oconee County at the state level Teacher of the Year competition.  Also recognized at the ceremony was the school's Support Employee of the Year Lee Ann Stephens and Volunteer of the Year Rick Bagby.
