Lucy Beckham has likely been more of a positive influence upon more people, more students, more citizens of this community, and perhaps the entire state than any other single person in the state of South Carolina.

In honor of Lucy, the least we can do is change the name of the high school that she built, that she nurtured, that she cultivated, that she loved with every fiber of her being to Lucy Garrett Beckham High School.
