COLUMBIA, S.C. – Once upon a time there was a girl who lived in Blythewood, South Carolina.

Daughter of a farmer and granddaughter of a well driller, she never imagined herself having an office in the same college that would pave the way for her future career.

Sara Oswald is now an Advisor for the international honors society Phi Theta Kappa at Midlands Technical College. Her journey to get there was far from traditional.
