By Caitlin Boland

Raschondrius Burnett serves as an English/Language Arts and social studies teacher at Warren County Middle School. She has been teaching for 16 years, all of which have been in Warren County.
A Warren County Middle School (WCMS) teacher has been recognized as a super woman in the community.
Raschondrius Burnett received a Shero Award from 96.3 Kiss FM’s Cher Best as part of the Sisters Only Club (SOC). The award is one of several initiatives the club does in the CSRA to promote health and education especially in young girls and women, according to the club’s website.
SOC is a nonprofit organization that began as a book club in 1999 by Cher Best. The organization began as a book club for African American women in the CSRA but blossomed into the organization it is today, boasting more than 40 members and giving back to the community through service, according to the club’s website.
The club’s purpose is to:
•promote health and wellness education;
•develop the potential of teenage girls and women; and
•improve the quality of life in the CSRA through speciality events and programs.
Some of the annual events the club puts on include the South Augusta Women’s Health and Beauty Expo, Camp Be Your Best (which is held at the Thomson-McDuffie Boys & Girls Club each year), Operation Happy Heart and the Shero Awards.
“The award seeks to recognize women who are demonstrating excellence in their chosen fields and who are not only of good character but also demonstrate compassion, and a vision and desire to improve the quality of life for others,” the SOC website said “The Shero is a woman who can serve as a role model for young girls and other women.”
