About This Show
In 1992, while a student at Harvard Law, the former student body president of the University of South Carolina, Marie-Louise Ramsdale, attended an event called Serve-a-thon for City Year. Inspired by City Year and the 10,000 people performing transformational service, she returned that night to the computer lab at Harvard and wrote a two-page proposal to bring the program to Columbia, S.C. Inspired by her passion and determination, the co-founders, Alan Khazei and Michael Brown, founded City Year Columbia in the summer of 1993.
Ramsdale joins City Year Columbia 2013 corps member Emily Williams, and the Honorable Richard W. Riley, former S.C. Governor and former Secretary of Education, to talk with Walter Edgar about 20 years of service in the Midlands by City Year Columbia. “Give a year. Change the World.”
