Lexington Irmo Lake Murray Real Estate Update 01-07-2011

 

LHS graduate giving back in college – The skills Octavia Scott learned in Photoshop and multimedia classes at Lexington High School have opened the door for community service opportunities in her college career. Scott, 20, is a regular volunteer with Winthrop University’s Habitat for Humanity chapter. She also maintains the group’s web site and publicizes their events. A junior in college, Scott has worked with Habitat for Humanity for three years, painting and cleaning build sites with other Winthrop students. Winthrop is in Rock Hill, SC almost 80 miles from Lexington.

For Scott, giving back to a community and other people started before she enrolled at Winthrop. As a member of Lexington High School’s International Bachelorette (IB) program, she was required to seek out service opportunities. She mentored a local Girl Scout group, volunteered to build furniture for a West Columbia Habitat Restore Store and worked in the soup kitchen at her church, Saint Paul Missionary Baptist. She also worked as an athletic trainer for four years after school with the football, basketball and soccer teams. She said these experiences instilled the principle of a servant’s heart in her.

Kyle Carpenter, a Marine through and through – “Rocking on the Front Porch” reports some encouraging news of LCpl.

LCpl . was in awe when a Four Star General took time to visit and present him with the Purple Heart said his proud dad. Gen. James Amos and Sgt. Major Carlton Kent presented Carpenter with the Purple Heart and took time to visit with the young Marine and his family during the Christmas holidays. Photos of the event show the wounded warrior with the Purple Heart taped to his bare chest. The proud father said his son is “Fighting like a Marine to get better.” But the battle will be a long one with more surgeries to go, followed by extensive rehab.
