School District Five to Offer Golden Passes to Senior Citizens

In a commendable outreach program aimed at engaging senior citizens within the community, School District Five in Irmo, South Carolina recently announced that it will soon be offering ‘Golden Passes’ to qualifying residents. Anyone who will be turning 60 years old, or older, during the 2024-2025 school year is eligible to receive this permanent photo identification card.

Calling on Senior Citizens to Partake in District Activities

As well as offering these complimentary photo ID cards, School District Five is making a concerted push to encourage senior citizens to be actively involved in district-sponsored events and activities throughout the upcoming school year. These Golden Passes grant holders free admission to a wide range of cultural and sports events across School District Five, excluding playoff games.

“The Golden Pass program brings community members of all ages together and provides an opportunity to say thank you to our senior community for volunteering and supporting our schools,” conveyed School District Five Superintendent Dr. Akil E. Ross, Sr.

Getting the Golden Passes

The one-time pass, which does not need to be renewed, will be issued on two separate days. Residents can collect their passes on either Tuesday, July 23, between 1 and 4 p.m., or Wednesday, July 24, between 9 a.m. and 12 p.m. The distribution will take place at the district administration building located at 1020 Dutch Fork Road in Irmo.

Golden Initiative for Senior Engagement

This generous opportunity places School District Five at the forefront of respect and recognition for the more mature members of its locality. By inviting senior citizens to enjoy events at schools for free and encouraging them to spend time around young people, the mutual benefits are evident and vast. The school district not only fosters a spirit of inclusivity but also allows the younger generation to learn and gain wisdom from the seniors’ rich life experience.

This program also illustrates how the agenda of the district is not just about education, but developing community spirit and bridge-building across generational lines. As more senior citizens take advantage of this opportunity, they should feel a stronger bond with the school district and an increased engagement in local events.

With the Golden Pass, School District Five hopes to impact positively intergenerational relations and the overall community spirit, apart from expressing their gratitude towards the senior citizens who have been instrumental in supporting and volunteering in the schools.
