He was the first in his family to attend college (which was a big feat when his grandfather was a Civil War veteran and living in a time when growing up in rural South Carolina typically meant dropping out of school to farm or work in the mill).54 years later, I graduated from Wofford College as well, and stood with my 2 younger siblings after the ceremony for this picture (My grandfather was also able to make the trip back to Wofford to share this day with me–see attached picture).
