Count your blessings, Thanksgiving reflections

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays for many reasons. It's a time to spend with family, eat great food, and reflect on what you are thankful for. While most families gather around the table with their meal, they go through the motions of sharing how thankful they are for one another. Unfortunately, many do just that…go through the motions. This year, when sharing what I am most thankful for, I will include my family and a forgiving God, but I will also include the time I was allowed with my mother.

Midway School Alumni presentation

On Saturday Nov. 5, the Midway School Alumni presented a display case of the history of Midway School from 1923-1965. Harvey S. Teal and Barbara Teal Stevens composed and designed the 48 panel, 20 foot display. Many hours were spent gathering information from old annuals, archives and old papers as well as talking to old teachers, students and classmates who attended high school during that time. In 1966 the S.C. Department of Education closed five high schools down; Midway was one of the five. It remains an elementary school.
