Clinton Middle School won the Anderson County Chamber of Commerce’s first “Dream It. Do It.” competition.
Clinton Middle School partnered with Eagle Bend Manufacturing in the competition. For their effort, the school received four Go Pro cameras, provided by Consolidated Nuclear Security LLC, or CNS, through corporate funds.
