I am a graduate of Presbyterian College in Clinton, South Carolina where I majored in History and Political Science.  I grew up in Edgefield County and have lived in Aiken since 1987. As a native of South Carolina, I am passionate about our state's history. I am also fascinated by all areas of United States and World History. I hope I can share my passion for history with you!
