CAYCE, S.C. — The Cayce community is memorializing the former Cayce Colored School with a historical marker.

“I am blessed to say that I got my start right here at the Cayce Elementary School,” said Isola Washington Calhoun.

Isola Washington-Calhoun, 93, went to the school that would eventually be renamed the Cayce Negro Elementary School more than 85 years ago.

Built in the late 1920’s the school was the only one of its kind for African Americans in the city.

Today a historical marker stands in its place on the grounds of the Mt. Zion Baptist Church.
