Truesdell tells Bethune Council high school needs to be preserved A former South Carolina state representative and Presbyterian minister expressed concern Thursday at the Bethune Town Council meeting over the fate of the town’s high school, which he said has the lowest enrollment in the state. Dr. Neil Truesdell of Bethune said the school may be in danger of closing in the future and something has to be done to save it from going under. “It’s just a matter of time before it’s consolidated with another school,” he said, and although Bethune and McBee’s high schools have been long standing rivals, Truesdell seemed to prefer consolidation with them rather than another school outside Kershaw County.
