My name is Anjennette James.  I am excited to be apart of the Lee Central High School Family.  I have over 20 years of experience in education and have committed myself to be a lifelong learner.  I am the proud mother of four young adults and the grandmother to one highly intelligent grandson!  During my leisure time, my husband and I love to venture off to various sporting events.

Hello, I am Bridget C. Woodbury, School Counselor at Lee Central High School serving students in grades 9th & 10th.  I successfully earned a BS in Social Work, MA in Rehabilitation Counseling and M.Ed. in School Counseling all from SC State University in Orangeburg, SC and GCDF.   In addition, I have earned certificates in American Sign Language from the University of South Carolina and Midlands Technical College Continuing Education programs.


My goal at LCHS is to foster and reach each and every child, to enhance student achievement, reach requirements for high school graduation, post-secondary success and to prepare for and obtain competitive employment or military enlistment.  My personal mission is to encourage our students to become “Powers for Good in their community and society”.
