A Blackville-Hilda Middle School student’s creativity has earned her a statewide award.
Cheyanah Sims won first place from the Carolinas Council of Housing, Redevelopment and Codes Officials in the What Home Means to Me poster contest. The eighth grader lives at the Beaver Dam Complex in Blackville and is active in sports, including basketball and softball.
“I went by my imagination. I like to be creative,” said Sims, whose future aspirations include being a model, writer and artist.
