The South Carolina Department of Juvenile Justice's goal is to protect the public and reclaim juveniles through prevention, community programs, education, and rehabilitative services in the least restrictive environment  possible. They work toward that goal by providing a G.E.D program and work-study program, among other services.

The End of the Road

By Sean Scott

Williams-Brice Stadium is right beside SC ETV

After 10 long, sometimes grueling (othertimes definitely not) weeks, the time has come; the end of my ETV internship is here. Before I wrap up and put a bow on this summer, I have to recap the final week first. It's been another pretty slow week here at the office with seemingly half of Content on some kind of vacation this week. This left Aimee in charge and she took a laid-back approach, not wanting my final week to be too crazy.
