Master Topiary Artist Pearl Fryar offered words of inspiration to students at the Continuous Learning Center (CLC) on Monday. Connie Frith -- a Lugoff Garden Club member and Kershaw County School District parenting specialist -- has known Fryar for several years and invited him to speak to students. After hearing Fryar’s story of how he rose to the top, Frith knew sharing his story with students in the district would enlighten them and give them hope and drive for their futures.
