We are very proud of the achievements and contributions of our students and our staff. In 2013-2014, Camden High was the high school recipient of the Palmetto's Finest Award. It was a collective effort of our student body, staff, and community. The Palmetto's Finest Award is the most prestigious state award that a school can receive.
Some of the recognition programs are Students of the Month (sponsored by the Academic Booster Club); Bulldogs At Their Best (initiated by Asst. Principal Accie Collins; Class of the Week (to teachers who demonstrate exemplary instructional practices); Paw Print Awards (sponsored by the Camden High Alumni Association and given to students for exemplary community and school service).
The KCSD sponsored Teacher of the Year program recognizes teachers who have been selected by their peers as the most outstanding teacher of the year. In 2018, Science teacher Carla Cothern was voted CHS Teacher of the Year. The Kershaw County Reading Council sponsors the district's Reading Teacher of the Year program. In 2018, Librarian Laura Horton was chosen by fellow teachers as the CHS RTOY. The district's Golden Apple program recognizes teachers and staff members who have gone the extra mile to help others.
