Excellent Extracts

Excellent Extracts is a small business in Rock Hill, S.C. that makes food-safe extracts for cooking, baking, drinks, and more. Owner Casandra Merwin describes how her passion for living a clean, healthy lifestyle came when her stepson entered her life. She explains, “Before he came into my life I would eat fast food and I didn’t care about anything… I didn’t think about it until I was giving it to somebody else. And I was like, wait, this is probably not that great for you.

My Ride Rock Hill

Week four definitley picked up. Not only was I tasked with finishing the Made Here story I started working on, but I also worked on a smaller piece about My Ride, Rock Hill, which is Rock Hill's new all-eclectric public transit system.

My Ride Rock Hill

My Ride Rock Hill, the city’s free public busing system, is launching Monday, June 10, as the first public transit system to begin all-electric. Route 1 begins Monday with Routes 2-4 starting July 1.

While many public transit systems are currently trying to convert from diesel fuel to electric, Rock Hill is paving a new way, by launching its seven-bus fleet as completely electric from the start.

Chasing the Moon

Week two of the Endowment Internship is now complete. The beginning of the week was busy. There were trips to Hartsville and Columbia before I got some time to work on stories in the office. 

Monday started with the hour-and-a-half drive to Hartsville for the first of five events in conjunction with the American Experience: Chasing the Moon documentary series. SCETV scheduled five events around the state where screeners from Chasing the Moon are combined with speakers in honor of the fiftieth anniversary of Apollo 11.
