  • Column: The key to success: High expectations

    This column is about a teacher, a family and a state, and one simple but powerful idea – expectations.
    First the teacher. In 1804, in the S.C. backwoods of what is now McCormick County, at a crossroads called Willington, four Presbyterian men decided that the community needed a church and  a school.
