Orangeburg County Community of Character exists to INSPIRE (citizens to take responsibility for their decisions and actions), MOTIVATE (citizens to make a difference in the world around them), and to RECOGNIZE (citizens for exhibiting excellence in character).  

It takes a community of effort to make a transformation.
