Indian Land High School senior Brandon McClain came close to dropping out this year.
The way McClain tells it, the decision crept into his mind sometime during spring break as he lounged around the friend’s house where he was staying with nothing to do, and feeling just fine about it.
McClain’s logic, he said, was that he was 18, independent, and nobody could stop him if he did. Why not? Quit school and be done with it.
