City introduces Vista Place development The City of Florence celebrated the completion of three newly constructed houses at Vista Place with a ribboncutting and open house on Thursday, March 15. Vista Place is the City’s initial development in the Neighborhood Redevelopment Program. It is located at 410-414 W. Vista Street, across the street from North Vista Elementary School. Recognizing that healthy neighborhoods are vital to creating communities of lasting value, City Council and staff have worked diligently to fulfill goals of the 2010 Comprehensive Plan and 2016 Update which called for the reinstatement of neighborhood planning, and the revitalization, stabilization, and maintenance of the City’s core neighborhoods. The three homes in Vista Place Development are the first phase of this neighborhood redevelopment. A fourth home is under contract and will be added to Vista Place, said City Manager Drew Griffin. The homes bring a fresh new look to the area which accentuate the existing character of the neighborhood. The City’s Community Services Department and Planning, Research & Development staff worked closely with consultants APD Urban Planning & Development on the implementation of a Neighborhood Redevelopment Strategy. Vista Place homes were designed by architect Jennifer Langford of Gainesville, Fla. and constructed by Montgomery Wess of Columbia and Wallace Housing of Lake City. The planning process identified four areas of need: 1) acquisition and redevelopment of vacant/abandoned properties, 2) protection of historic neighborhoods, 3) community infrastructure; and 4) infill of residential development. To date, the City has acquired 53 residential properties, demolished 20 abandoned houses, and designed and/ or completed street/infrastructure enhancements in the three designated neighborhoods of East, North, and Northwest Florence. To foster neighborhood redevelopment, the City committed over $3 million General Fund dollars to property acquisition, housing construction, and

Additional funding included a low-interest $700,000 loan from the S.C. Community Loan Fund to provide construction financing for a catalytic housing development; a $296,000 Neighborhood Initiative Program grant to acquire and demolish blighted properties for redevelopment; and a $370,000 Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) for down-payment and closing-cost assistance. Drew Griffin announced that the Neighborhood Redevelopment Project has earned the 2018 Municipal Achievement Award in the economic development category. Mayor Stephen Wukela will accept this award on behalf of the City of Florence at the Annual Meeting of the Municipal Association of South Carolina this summer. This will be the 6th consecutive award for the City of Florence.

The next steps for the Neighborhood Redevelopment program include three additional housing developments: Old Carver Station, Sumter Station and Historic Pine. The bid opening for Old Carver Station occurred on March 13, and construction is expected to begin on the project in early April with an anticipated completion date in early July 2018. Streetscape projects are planned for Pine and Sumter Streets. The Pine Street project will include repair of existing sidewalks and dilapidated drive entrances, street tree plantings and new handicap ramps. The Sumter Street project will include installation of new curb and gutter, drive entrances, stormwater improvements, new sidewalks on both sides of the street, street tree plantings and the first bike lanes in Florence. New home construction is planned to begin early Summer 2018 for Historic Pine on existing lots and will

develop with a new subdivision and homes projected for completion in the next two years. The Sumter Station housing development is in the early stages and city staff is currently acquiring land for the project. The City’s Community Services Department is working diligently to locate qualified home buyers and has offered several homebuyer ownership and credit counseling workshops for residents. Incentives are available for qualified buyers. If interested in purchasing a new construction home in Vista Place Development or a future development in the target neighborhood areas, contact the Community Services Department at 843-665-3175 to inquire.

Lenten services at Central

DO YOU REMEMBER?

During the season of Lent, Christians pay special attention to personal spiritual practices that help us reflect and renew as we look toward Easter Sunday. Central’s Lenten Spirituality Center is a place for members and the community to experience some spiritual practices, such as prayer, meditation, labyrinth walking and responding to scripture through artistic expression, all in a calm and quiet environment. Stations with instructions are set up and intended to be self-led. Children under the age of 12 should be accompanied by an adult. Visitors are asked to use the Irby Street entrance. The Center will be open in Spears Fellowship Hall March 16-30 during Central’s operating hours. Lenten Mid-Week Service: You are invited to Central United Methodist Church for a Lenten mid-week service on Wednesday, March 21, at 12:30 p.m. in the sanctuary. The guest preacher will be Rev. Carlton McClam Sr., Senior Pastor of Mount Carmel United Methodist Church in Charleston. Rev. McClam has pastored several churches in the South Carolina and North Georgia Conferences of the United Methodist Church and currently sits on the South Carolina Conference Board of Ordained Ministry. There will be a $6 lunch served before (11:30 a.m.) and after (1 p.m.) the service. For more information or for a full listing of Lenten mid-week services, call the church office at 843-662-3218 or visit centralmethodist.net.

Museum supports school transportation thru grant The Florence County Museum has established a grant program to assist Pee Dee area schools with transportation costs for field trips to the museum. Although the Florence County Museum’s educational programs are free to students, the cost of transportation can put a burden on the school and is often transferred to the students as field trip fees. “We recognize the hard work that our teachers provide for the education of our children. We also understand the financial struggles that field trip expenses can place on families. Although the Florence County Museum provides educational experiences at no cost, schools are required to arrange for their own transportation and these fees add up,” said Andrew R.

Stout, museum director. In an effort to have an allinclusive experience, Chesterfield, Clarendon, Darlington, Dillon, Florence, Lee, Marion, Marlboro, Sumter, and Williamsburg County District school teachers can apply for a $200 grant to assist with transportation costs, reimbursable at the

close of Florence County Museum programs. “At the Florence County Museum, we are passionate about sharing the rich cultural, artistic and historical heritage of the Pee Dee with students of all ages. It is our hope that every student in the Pee Dee region has the opportunity to visit the Florence County Museum and to participate in an engaging, standards-based educational experience,” said Kimberly Washburn, Curator of Education “We are very fortunate to have outstanding cultural resources in Florence. The work and funding that has been provided to construct our outstanding facilities has not gone unnoticed. Now that we can provide the opportunities that we all have desired, it is time we see that all of our children participate, regardless of their walk of life, “ added Stout. The Florence County Museum is thankful for the continued Partners in Education who help to make the Trans-

portation Assistance Grants possible. It is with the help of community members that the museum can continue to change lives.

BY BRENDA HARRISON Editor of The News Journal Florence, S.C. BEN-NO-MO, a unique product invented, designed and manufactured right here in Florence, is being launched nationally. Owners Larry Lyerly and his son Chad are ready for the next step in marketing their lightweight adjustable and collapsible stand assembly. BEN-NO-MO, slang for Bend No More, eliminates the uncomfortable routine of constantly bending over to grab something, such as food and beverages from a cooler. Made of lightweight aluminum, this adjustable stand is very versatile. It is perfect for tool boxes, tackle boxes, camp grills, gardening tools and much more. It’s also great to take to the beach or lake, saving backaches and preventing the tracking of dirt and sand in your vehicle. And, it is a must for any hardcore tailgater. There’s no wrong way to use this trend-setting product, says Larry, explaining it is more than just a cooler stand. Maintenance workers find it very helpful because the open frame makes is easy for them to repair or work on machinery, especially if they need to get underneath it. “This unique product is so easy to adjust and easy to store and carry. It can hold up to 300 pounds which makes it very sturdy,” said Larry. Larry retired from the company he established, ATFC Tooling and Manufacturing, about seven years ago. Chad bought and took over the business which he ran until recently selling it. Now the pair are concentrating on the national and global marketing of BEN-NO-MO. “As entrepreneurs we were looking for a new challenge,”

lower the price considerably,” he commented. He added that their marketing strategy includes targeting Father’s Day because the BENNO-MO makes an ideal and practical gift.

Starting with five partners, the product has gone from idea, to design, to patent, to manufacturing and local marketing over past four to five years. Now it is just the two owners and they are ready to take it to the next step – the world market. They already have sales in California and Canada, Larry noted. The past five years have been a research and learning experience, the Lyerlys explained. They’ve learned some pretty interesting things, said Chad. It turns out that women tend to buy the stands more so than men. “Women buy them as gifts for their husbands, and then pull them out at soccer games and use them when gardening,” Larry noted.

They also learned that middle age customers, from 30 to 50, are the major purchasers. The Lyerlys have been able

to bring the price down 35 percent through imports, receiving their first shipment in January. They’ve added an office in

How high schoolers can boost business By JD Hoye Finding skilled workers is an ongoing challenge for American businesses. Media reports tend to focus on the lack of science, tech, and math skills. But more than four in 10 business executives complain that too many job applicants lack “soft skills” like creativity, teamwork, and communication. Indeed, a full half of the nation’s hiring managers say the college graduates they meet are short on “critical thinking and problem solving” skills and the ability to pay adequate “attention to detail.” Closing this soft skills gap is critical. Fortunately, business leaders don’t have to wait on schools or colleges to step in -- they can easily take action on their own. It all starts at the local high school. With welldesigned internship programs, businesses can help young people acquire the full range of skills they need to be successful throughout their lives. While many employers have internship programs for college students and recent graduates, smart companies will get a head start on building a workforce by identifying and developing even younger talent. Employers who have already opened their door to high school interns have witnessed the contributions that young people bring to their businesses from day one. A recent survey found that 45 percent of those who offer internships to high schools were “very likely” or “completely likely” to extend full-time job offers to their former interns. As David Bilodeau, a senior member of the technical staff of Verizon, explains: “[Students] don’t have any preconceived notions of what you can and can’t do, and that’s invaluable.” He estimates that Verizon makes a “tenfold” return on its investment in interns. One in four business leaders say they get fresh ideas from their high school interns. I know from personal experience what high school interns bring to business. The organization I lead, NAF, helps high school students qualify for and obtain intern slots at top companies like Verizon, Capital One, and Marriott. Throw away any pre-conceived notions of interns making coffee; our students work in robotics, plan events, and devise cost-cutting strategies. By the time they finish their internships, they have enough confidence to run social media campaigns, develop business plans, and cold-call sales leads. That’s value added for companies -and marketable skills for student resumes. Reaching out to high schoolers also offers tremendous potential in an area of perennial concern for employers: diversity. Due to structural barriers, too many young people of color never make it to college or leave before they finish. A New York University study found that over “60 percent of the racial gap in college completion rates can be attributed to factors that occur before college.” Put simply, companies that look only to college students and grads put themselves at a diversity disadvantage. These internships benefit students too, of course. Urban Alliance’s High School Internship Program provides career training, internships, and mentorship to at-risk students in Washington, DC., Baltimore, Northern Virginia, and Chicago. An internal assessment found that completion of an internship correlated with increased rates of college attendance for young men. And whether college-bound or not, students who have completed a high school internship programs enjoy starting wages 11 percent higher than the average for students who have not been interns. Companies across the country can play an active role in shaping the talent pipeline and can be confident in knowing that the solution is closer than they realize -- in local high schools with perfect hires.

How many of these slogans do you know? I’ve been seeing a lot of TV commercials lately for BDO. You know the slogan, “People who know, know BDO.” While it is a catchy slogan that is ingrained in my memory, I really don’t know BDO. So, I Googled it. I learned the network originally formed in 1963 as Binder Seidman International by firms from Canada, Germany, the Netherlands, UK and US. It is coordinated by BDO Global Coordination B.V., with an office in Zaventem, Belgium. The name BDO, devised in 1973, is an abbreviation for Binder Dijker Otte & Co. So, now we know! Thinking about recognizable advertising slogans, I started making a list. Here’s some really old ones: • “Melts in Your Mouth, Not in Your Hands.” This M&Ms slogan has been around more than 60 years. I remember it connected with a black and white cartoon commercial featuring M&M stick figures jumping off a diving board into a pool of chocolate. • “They’re Gr-r-r-reat.” Kelloggs Frosties mascot, Tony the Tiger, is famous for roaring this catchphrase for as long as I can remember.

Brenda Harrison Editor

• “Snap, Crackle and Pop” has been synonymous with the Rice Krispies brand since the 1930s. • “All the News That’s Fit to Print” has appeared on the masthead of The New York Times since 1897. Owner Adolph S. Ochs created the famous slogan as a declaration of the newspaper’s intention to report the news impartially. • “The Quicker Picker Upper.” Bounty paper towels, made by Procter & Gamble, has used this catchy phrase for almost 50 years now. • “Like a Good Neighbor, State Farm is There” was created with a jingle written by Barry Manilow in 1971. • “Nationwide Is On Your Side” has been ‘on your side’ for over 40 years. • “You’re In Good Hands” has become synonymous with Allstate

Insurance Company since the 1950s. • “We Bring Good Things to Life,” was initiated by General Electric Co. in 1979. Today’s slogan is “Imagination at Work.” • “Finger Lickin’ Good” is quickly identified with KFC. • “Just Do It,” says Nike • “Got Milk?” Know that phrase, but I wonder how many people know it comes from the California Milk Processor Board? • “Betcha Can’t Eat Just One.” Lay’s Potato Chips’ catchy dare latched onto our addiction for this crispy, salty and tasty snack. • “Can You Hear Me Now? Good.” Verizon introduced this iconic slogan in 2002. • “A Diamond is Forever” has appeared in every single De Beers advertisement since 1948. It was named the best slogan of the century in 1999 by AdAge. • “It Keeps Going, and Going, and Going...” We cannot forget the Energizer battery slogan. • “I’m Lovin’ It,” McDonald’s campaign was launched in 2003 and still stands strong today.

Don’t let underage drinking ruin your prom Many teens dream of their high school years’ being full of traditional and memorable events. Few are as eagerly anticipated as Prom night and its associated rituals. Unfortunately many teens, and parents, feel that including alcohol with these events is an acceptable rite of passage. Underage drinking, by far, continues to be the most common risky behavior challenging youth today. Alcohol remains the number one drug of choice for teens statewide with 65% of high school students consuming alcohol at some point during their high school years. Even though a lower percentage of youth are drinking today than in years past, those that are consuming alcohol, are doing so at an alarming rate. In fact, the latest research shows that many youth are participating in the growing epidemic of binge drinking. Binge drinking is defined as consuming 4-5 drinks during one event causing the BAC level to rise to dangerous levels. Those that participate in this activity are much more likely to be involved in acts of violence, unwanted sexual activities, and more likely to drive a vehicle and be involved in a crash. Surprisingly to many, females participate in binge drinking at a higher rate than their male counterparts, leaving them particularly vulnerable. In order to minimize the potential dangers and consequences involved with underage drinking during the prom season, Circle

Randy Cole CEO Circle Park Behavioral Health Services

Park Behavioral Health Services and the Florence County Coalition for Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse Prevention, along with local law enforcement agencies have joined forces to support the “Don’t Let Underage Drinking Ruin Your Prom” Campaign. This campaign emphasizes that it is illegal if you are under the age of 21 to purchase, possess or consume alcoholic beverages. Prom night parties and activities tend to provide an opportunity for many high school students to participate in this dangerous activity. In an effort to address and minimize these potential incidences in our community, the 12th Judicial Circuit Alcohol Enforcement Team (AET), a multi-jurisdictional team of various agencies throughout Florence and Marion Counties, will be utilizing a series of enforcement activities during prom nights that may include: • Source Investigations – AET members will be uti-

lizing their resources to identify the source of alcohol that is being possessed or consumed by underage youth at prom activities. Those found to be providing alcohol to minors will be charged and prosecuted. • Party Patrols – AET members will be patrolling neighborhoods, rural areas, bonfire sites, etc. where before and after prom parties may be taking place. • Parking Lot Patrols – AET members will patrol parking lots of local establishments and locations where prom activities may be occurring to ensure that underage alcohol possession and consumption is not taking place. • Restaurant WalkThroughs – AET members will be visible making walk throughs at local restaurants popular with prom goers and interacting with them to ensure that they understand the importance of having an alcohol free prom night. • Compliance Checks – AET members will be checking local establishments to ensure that alcohol is not making it in to the hands of underage consumers. Underage youth also need to be aware of the constructive possession statute in which anyone

First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

under the age of 21 can receive a citation or be arrested for possessing alcohol products, having them in their car or being at a party or event where underage drinking is taking place, EVEN if they are not drinking themselves. We hope that all youth and parents participating in this year’s prom events will work together to make smart, legal and healthy choices to ensure that this year’s prom events in our community are fun, safe and alcohol free.

Jammie and Cole ready to cha cha at DFOFS event on Thursday BY BRENDA HARRISON Editor of The News Journal Florence, S.C. Jammie McDonald and Cole Davis plan to have fun with their cha cha dance routine at the 8th Annual Dancing For Our Future Stars on Thursday, March 22. They’ll be “throwing some perm” on their attitude while dancing to Bruno Mars’ “Perm.” Jammie is having a lot of fun in rehearsal, she said, adding learning to be precise in the dance steps is work. “I used to think I could dance, but now I know I can’t,” she quipped. Jammie is a single mom with two children and works for First Citizens Bank. Partner Cole Davis is no stranger to the DFOFS spotlight. This will be his third year as a professional dancer. Cole is a music teacher at Mayo High School for Math, Science and Technology. He is also a regular performer at the Florence Little Theatre and is currently in rehearsal as “Joseph” in the upcoming musical, “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dream-

JAMMIE MCDONALD AND COLE DAVIS AT A RECENT REHEARSAL coat,” opening April 27. Cole has high praise for his dance partner saying Jammie is extremely easy going and very good to work with. Getting into crunch time, the pair has been rehearsing

twice a week. Jammie and Cole will square-off with the other celebrities and dance professionals at the SiMT on Thursday evening for a chance to win the coveted mirror ball trophy. A reception will begin

at 6 p.m. followed by the competition at 7 p.m. Guests will have an opportunity to win a custom-designed jewelry piece donated by Lisa and Lex Matthews of Southern Jewelry Design. School Foundation board

member Ed Love and local celebrity Audra Coble will serve as master and mistress of ceremonies. The 2017 celebrities will perform the opening act and the KFA Fierce Team will provide special entertainment throughout the evening. The remaining dance couples competing in this year’s event include: • Dr. Lisa Bishara (McLeod Health) and Joseph Steen • Louie Callahan (Burch Oxner Seale Co., CPAs) and Alexis McDonald • Ken Baker (WMBF News) and Mary Grace Colburn • Ron Glancy (Raines Hospitality) and Tiffany Welsh • David Hall (First Reliance Bank) and Erin Haynes • Dr. Ramzy Hourany (Carolinas Hospital System) and Julia Thompson • Joey McMillan (Coldwell Banker McMillan and Associates) and Katelyn Rodgers • Dr. Calvin Robinson (Trinity Baptist Church) and Fallon Frierson • Chris Rogers (Carver

Elementary School) and Morgan Truitt • Robbie Timms (BB&T) and Meggie Baker • Les Ward (Pepsi of Florence, LLC/Pee Dee Food Service) and Mallory Baxley Fans may vote online for their favorite couple(s) at DancingForOurFutureStarsOfFlorence.com for $10 per vote. The “People’s Choice” mirror ball trophies will be awarded to the three couples raising the most votes. A panel of judges will name one couple “Technical Skills Winner” based on the contestants’ overall skills. One couple will also be chosen as “Most Entertaining” by the judges. Dancers receiving the largest number of online votes will be awarded the “Social Stars” trophy. All proceeds from this major fund-raising event will go to The School Foundation. To date, the foundation has provided over $1,355,377 in grants to FSD1 educators. To learn more about The School Foundation, visit their website at www.theschoolfoundation.org.

Florence West Rotarians welcome women to Chrysalis Center The Florence West Rotary Club recently donated 80 welcome baskets to the women entering the Chrysalis Center residential facility. This was part of a South Carolina Rotary District 7770 sponsored grant initiative to address a critical need in local communities. Mothers suffering from substance use disorders and seeking treatment were identified by Florence West Rotarians as a most critical and underserved population in our community. To assist the mothers, club members purchased sturdy carry baskets and an assortment of essential items such as towels, washcloths, detergent, soap, lotions, shampoo, stationary and other personal items. As part of a weekly club meeting, members assembled and filled the baskets and delivered them to the Chrysalis Center. The Chrysalis Center is a unique 16 bed residential facility for mothers suffering from substance abuse disorders. It allows women to bring up to two of their children under the age of 10 to reside with them on-site during services, and depending on their eligibility criteria, stay for up to 90120 days. The program provides on-

site individual and group counseling, daycare and medical services as well as providing an array of life skills developmental classes. Sheryl Love, Florence West Rotary president, shared ”We were thrilled to have an opportunity to help the women and their children entering the Chrysalis Center. In times such as these when our communities are experiencing such high rates of prescription and other drug misuse, being a part of assisting mothers to enter treatment and obtain a successful recovery is most rewarding. This project allows us to directly help mothers and their children while also strengthening their families and futures.” Robin Murphy, supervisor of residential services at the Chrysalis Center commented, “We are most appreciative to receive the support of the Florence West Rotarians. Many of our women and children being admitted for services arrive with little if any belongings. This adds to their challenges of initiating and adjusting to treatment services in a structured environment and unfortunately can lead to them leaving in the first few weeks. If we can assist

them to make it through the first couple of weeks, then their chance of a successful recovery greatly increases. The welcome baskets are a great resource of meeting their personal needs early in their admission and supporting them in continuing their treatment services. We have already seen the baskets make a positive impact in a short period of time.” Love added, “The Florence Rotary West Club and the Chrysalis Center share a common mission, to improve the quality of life for the greater Florence community and its residents. This particular project gave our club members an opportunity to support a most deserving part of our community in a hands on way and experience ‘Service above Self.’ Being able to make a positive difference in the lives of families and improving what the future of our community holds for all of us is what Rotary is all about!” For more information about the Florence West Rotary, visit www. facebook.com/FlorenceWestRotary and for the Chrysalis Center visit www.CirclePark.com.

CHARLESTON – Marva Smalls, formerly of Florence, who is recognized as one of the most influential leaders in media, has pledged $250,000 in support of the International African American Museum (IAAM). “This is a unique opportunity to give back to my home state. Now, more than ever, the history and culture embodied by the site of Gadsden’s Wharf, where the IAAM will be built, needs to be illuminated. We will elevate the African American narrative and recognize the hundreds of thousands who disembarked on this sacred ground,” commented Smalls. Smalls has more than three decades of leadership experience in the public and private sectors. She is currently Executive Vice President and Global Head of Inclusion Strategy for Viacom and Executive Vice President of Public Affairs and Chief of Staff for the Nickelodeon Group, directing all pro-social and corporate responsibility initiatives. “Since joining the IAAM board of directors in 2016, Marva has brought a wealth of experience, leadership, relationship cultivation and philanthropy,” said Michael Boulware Moore, IAAM president and CEO. “In addition to making this incredibly generous pledge, her contributions to the board are innumerable, and she has been vital in guiding the IAAM’s fundraising efforts.” Ms. Smalls’ work at Viacom includes promoting multiculturalism, inclusivity and diversity around the world. She shares these values in her personal life, evident in her extraordinary philanthropic work through the Marva Smalls Endowment with Coastal Community Foundation of South Carolina, including her $1 million donation to the University of South Carolina’s Ronald McNair Center. The endowment provides scholarships and support to engineering students from under-represented minority populations.

MARVA SMALLS “Marva’s myriad accomplishments have brought so much pride to the state of South Carolina. She has wisely chosen worthy organizations to support and collaborate with, and the IAAM is honored to be counted among them,” said Joseph P. Riley Jr., IAAM board member and former mayor of Charleston. The IAAM is less than $5 million away from meeting its private fundraising goal. Construction is expected to begin this summer. About the IAAM: Nearly half of all enslaved Africans forced to America through the Transatlantic Slave Trade arrived in Charleston, and the vast majority disembarked at Gadsden’s Wharf, the future home of the International African American Museum (IAAM) and one of the most significant and sacred sites of the African American experience in the Western hemisphere. The IAAM, a museum, memorial and site of conscience, will present unvarnished history and culture, commemorate and celebrate the foundational role that Africans and their descendants played in the making of America, and highlight their diasporic connections around the world. It will include immersive, interactive exhibits engaging to all ages and feature the Center for Family History, a leading genealogy archive that will help visitors identify their individual threads in the complex tapestry of history.

Youth wins local, state DAR contest BY BRENDA HARRISON Editor of The News Journal Florence, S.C. The Samuel Bacot Chapter, DAR, hosted its annual American History and Good Citizens program on March 14 at the Florence County Library. Member Stephanie Raia introduced the winning finalists for the American History Essay Contest. Each finalist read their essays and the winners were announced. The topic was “World War I, Remembering the War to End All Wars.” Eighth grader finalists were Cydney Turner of Maranatha Christian School, William Lewis of Sneed Middle School and Kate Potter of Sneed, who had the winning essay. Seventh grader finalists were Alex Snow who was not present, Conor Koon and Davis Searling, all of Trinity-Byrnes Collegiate School. Davis was the winner. Sixth grader finalists were Chris Rishmawi, Caroline Owens and Matthew Leland, all from Florence Christian School. Matthew Leland not only wrote the chapter’s winning essay, but his composition took first place in the state. He was recognized in Columbia on Saturday, March 17. His essay will be entered in the national con-

Camp Jessie’s Kids, a day camp for children who have suffered the loss of someone they care deeply about (for example, a special family member, relative or friend) or for those who have someone in their family who is very sick at this time, will be held on Saturday, April 28, from 9 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. The camp is open to children ages four through 14. Parents or guardians are asked to accompany children who are four to six years old. Camp Jessie’s Kids is held to help children learn about grief and understand their feelings; to learn ways to cope with feelings of loss and concern when someone is sick; to talk with other children who are going through similar experiences; and to meet new friends and enjoy a day of fun activities. The camp is staffed by professionals and trained volunteers who understand the importance of a child’s feelings and the grief experience. Camp Jessie’s Kids is free. The camp is funded by generous gifts to the McLeod Health Foundation and donations from local businesses and individuals in the community. Registration for the camp is required. To register for the camp or for more information, please call Jessie Tanner with McLeod Hospice at (843) 777-2007. The deadline for registration is April 20.

LOCAL AND STATE WINNER – Chris, Sarah Leland and son Matthew Leland, with Regent Ann Jenkins test. To prepare for his essay, Matthew read two books and watched a YouTube video on WWI. He said his research taught him about the Espionage Act and what went on during this war. Donna O’brien introduced the high school finalists for the Good Citizen Awards who also read their essays. The topic was “Our American Heritage and Our

Responsibility for Preserving,” and subtitled, “How Has America Advanced the Cause of Freedom in the Rest of the World.” The winner was Mary Catherine Mitchell of TrinityByrnes Collegiate who received a check for $100. Finalists were Ann Walker Payne of West Florence, and Colton Mims of South Florence. Mims was not present.
