June 2017 at 9:30 am

In our first segment we spoke with Mr. Bill Partin, President of Sharonview Federal Union. He explained to us the difference between a bank and a credit union. He also shared with us the many services offered by a credit union.

In segment two we spoke with Caitlan Reid of Bethany Christian Services of South Carolina. The goal of this global non-profit organization is to bring and keep families together. Strengthening families for the well-being of children is their top priority. They handle international and domestic adoptions, as well as foster care adoptions.

In our last segment we visited with Ellen Weaver, President of Palmetto Promise Institute. This is a non-profit organization that develops public policy research around issues that are important to South Carolina’s future. Their goal is to see S.C. be the best that it can be whether that’s education or access to healthcare or competitive tax policy that will help job creation in our state. They strive to produce independent research that can empower legislatures with good information, as well as inform the public about different policy issues that affect their daily lives.
