Elisabeth Harkins hopes that her efforts to raise awareness about scoliosis will lead parents to get their children screened for it early to prevent the need for surgery.
Scoliosis is a curvature of the spine and can be S-shaped or C-shaped.
Construction on phase one of North Augusta High School's master plan is expected to begin in October or November.
The Aiken County school board gave final approval for the project earlier this month.
The project is budgeted for about $11 million.
For June 26-July 2:
