Jeff Bailey Memorial Fishing Tournament

September 11, 2021

Lake Bowen 8515 Highway 9
Inman, SC 29349
Safe Daylight - 2pm

The Jeff Bailey Memorial Fishing Tournament has one goal; honor the life and legacy of Jeff Bailey. Mr. Bailey was the Wastewater Superintendent for the City of Inman for over two decades. The award-winning wastewater treatment plant and sewer system that the City of Inman enjoys is a direct result of Mr. Bailey's leadership and vison.

When not at work Jeff could be found with his family, most likely on a boat. The love of the outdoors and fishing was strong in the Bailey family and their friends. When discussion started about to honor Jeff after his passing in July of 2020 the idea for a fishing tournament swam to the top very quickly.

The City of Inman is proud and excited to help bring together the Inman community and celebrate Jeff and Bailey family. If you have any questions regarding the tournament, please call 864.472.6200.

Chapman High School Named a National Blue Ribbon School

Chapman High School in Inman was one of six schools in South Carolina to be named a National Blue Ribbon School, the state Department of Education announced Thursday.

The high school in Spartanburg School District One is one of several schools in the Upstate receiving the honor.

Two schools in Greenville County also received the recognition. They are A.J. Whittenberg Elementary School and Saint Mary's Catholic School.

The nation's highest performing schools are honored with the award each year based on "overall academic excellence or their progress in closing achievement gaps among student subgroups" on state and national assessments, according to the U.S. Department of Education.

"We are extremely proud of these six South Carolina schools that have been honored nationally for their academic excellence," State Superintendent of Education Molly Spearman said in a written statement. "This award is testament to the hard work of students, teachers, staff, and families in these communities. These six schools are models of excellence for our entire state and nation."

Across the country, 317 public and 50 private schools were given the award this year. A virtual awards ceremony will be Nov. 12-13, 2020.
