Hampton District 2 celebrates two outstanding students

  • William Mitchell
  • De’Aira Bryant

Hampton County School District 2 produces an abundance of successful, college, and career ready students from its educational system. Many of these students have been recognized annually through the Estill High School Hall of Fame for their significant accomplishments. This year, we just could not wait to talk about two young adults and the vigor they possess in advancing their educational careers. We are proud to acknowledge Mr. William Mitchell and Miss De’Aira Bryant for the esteemed accomplishments and historical milestones that they have met. 

William Mitchell is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Clayton Mitchell of Nixville, S.C. and is the youngest of five children.  William has made history in the tri-county area and beyond by being the first student to graduate from college before walking across the high school stage. William has obtained an Associate of Science Degree from the University of South Carolina. He will continue his educational endeavors on a full scholarship to Clemson University in the fall of 2017. William's list of acquired awards is vastly growing. He is the recipient of the Daughters of the American Revolution Scholarship, the South Carolina Association of Title One Administrators (S.C.A.T.A) Scholarship, and the Masonic Lodge Scholarship. Williams will graduate from Estill High School on May 30, 2017. We are proud of William and the many accomplishments that he has made and look forward to his prosperous future that is ahead of him.

De’Aira Bryant is the daughter of the late Mr. Jerome Bryant and Mrs. Debra Bryant.  De’Aira was Valedictorian of the 2013 graduating class of Estill High School and recently graduated with a degree in computer science from the College of Engineering and Computing at the University of South Carolina. She’s also the recipient of the prestigious National Science Foundation award, which she’ll use to pursue graduate studies based on the impressive research she has completed while a student at USC. The science fellowship she received provides financial support amounting to $34,000 for any 3-year period over the next five years.
