Lowndes County - A South Georgia School System is recognized as one of the top in the state.

The Lowndes County School System has been recognized as Distinguished District among large school districts throughout the state.

This honor is awarded by the Georgia Department of Education to districts exhibiting consistent improvement in educating underprivileged children.  "We're really striving to make sure that we educate all children to the fullest and not leave any of them behind. And it's a validation that the fruits of our labor are paying off, so we're really proud of this," says Steve Smith, Superintendent for the Lowndes County School System.

Each of the four recognized districts will receive 50 thousand dollars to continue educational progress within the system.

The awards are paid with Title One money distributed by the federal government to assist in the No Child Left Behind Act.
