Stephen Gilchrist, a Greenwoodian who now lives and works in Columbia,
deserves a thumbs up for his story and the example he sets for others.
Gilchrist had what might be labeled an uncertain start in life. Like
many others, he had no real sense of direction before heading off to
college. In fact, he had no intentions of entering college. But
circumstances led him not only to go to college at South Carolina State
University, but also back home to Greenwood, plus a stint in the
political arena thanks to longtime state Sen. John Drummond.
