Focus on The Palmetto State

First up we spoke with Raven Magwood, a remarkable 23 year old young lady who is already an author, motivational speaker, and film maker.  She is heading up a Student Athlete Summit this month in Greenville.  This is an annual event that connects youth, parents and coaches in a unique way to encourage the youth to unlock their full potential in school, sports and in life. 

In segment two we met Lisa Howell with The American Board.  This is a non-profit organization dedicated to placing qualified South Carolina teachers in the classroom through alternative teacher certification.  They help anyone with a Bachelor’s degree that also meets state requirements to become a teacher. This is a great idea for career changes and stay at home parents. 


In segment three we learned about organic farming at Greenbrier Farms. We spoke with the co-owner, Amy Bishop.  This 300 acre farm is open to the public with a season full of activities.  They produce 100 percent grass fed beef and organically grown produce.  The farm sells their crops and also offer various activities for the entire family.
