Many of the 177 balloons released at 1:44 p.m. Wednesday to celebrate the late Sullivan Spradleys 18th birthday float through the air over Lugoff. Sullivans family sold the balloons, T-shirts and other items to raise money for a scholarship in his name that will assist yet-to-be-awarded members of the Lugoff-Elgin High School Class of 2018, with whom he would have graduated next May. - photo by Martin L.
