upcoming events



    South Effingham Elementary is privileged and proud to have a WTOC Hometown Hero on its staff.  Mr. Van Baldwin, our energetic maintenance man, leapt into action in the school cafeteria when he witnessed a 5th grade student choking.  Because of his previous EMT training and quick thinking, he was able to open the airway of Zachary Blackmon in a timely manner.  The fact that Zachary’s mother is a 1st grade teacher at SEES makes this story even more special.  The faculty and staff, especially the Blackmon family, are thrilled to call Mr. Van its very own Hometown Hero.
