This week’s stories are:
A dog’s journey from Myrtle Beach to California. WFXB received a report from Kind Keeper Animal Hospital. Leanne Dornseif that a dog that has been at their shelter for 8 months, Emila, has been adopted. “We never thought it would take her so long to find a home! In the 8 months that she was here she never even had a visitor until Tim (her adopter) finally came and visited her.” Tim lives in California. Now there will be a cross country road trip to get her there. Donations are being collected for the trip. You can follow the journey on Facebook and donate to the cause and in helping others like Emila find a forever home.

Florence Fellows in Education Partnership. Florence community members and business leaders are giving their time to become more vested in the community by getting a first hand look at day to day school operations. In its seventh year, the Fellows in Education program gives business and community leaders a unique behind-the-scenes look into Florence One Schools. It’s a partnership with The School foundation, Chamber of Commerce, and the schools. The program is designed to give its members a close look at day-to-day school operations so they might become ambassadors in their communities, sharing firsthand knowledge of what’s going on in the education system.
