The coronation of Miss Timberland, Jade Fayall, was held on Sept. 28 in the THS gym.
Jade was accompanied by her court: First Attendant Alyshia Ravenell, escorted by Shaheem Joyner; Second Attendant Destinie Shivers, escorted by Premier Nelson; as well as the queens of each class and club.
Jade is the daughter of Alex and Pamela Fayall of Alvin, and was escorted by Kyandre Steed.
The court was also made up of queens from J. K. Gourdin and St. Stephen Elementary schools.
Terri Hopkins introduced the Mistress of Ceremonies Essence Fayall.
The invocation was given by the Rev. Brian Williams; greetings were given by Erin Wooten; a song was performed by Shauntia White, and a tribute was delivered by Dannicia Laws.
That was followed by the Farewell March of Miss Shy-da Bradley, former Miss Timberland.
Devante Lampkin led a dance, followed by the Promenade by the current Miss Timberland. A waltz by Her Majesty and the Court was followed by presentations by Leshonda Reed, and remarks and acknowledgements by Kerry Daugherty.
The Rev. Brian Williams delivered the benediction.
A huge thanks to everyone who helped and coordinated this event, led by Gwen Robinson. Everyone had a wonderful time.
Principal of the Year
Congratulations to Timberland High School Principal Kerry Daugherty, who has been selected the Berkeley County School District as High School Principal of the Year.
According to THS English teacher Sara Smith, “…students are this principal’s primary concern. He is mindful that every student has a story and a background, and strives to accommodate and connect with them as individuals.
“He works hard to make sure that each student is given fair and appropriate opportunities to succeed. He is concerned not merely with student achievement in the classroom, but their needs outside of the classroom. I believe this is what sets him apart from other principals and makes our school a place of which I am proud to say I am a part”. Congratulations to Mr. Daugherty.
