GEORGETOWN COUNTY, SC -

Monday, Minister John Henry of Georgetown, SC will begin a march to the South Carolina State House in Columbia, SC in order to spotlight the need in South Carolina for better education within the school system, access to better healthcare for the poor, more jobs and resources for the underserved of our state and the need for community involvement so the voices of the masses of the people will be heard concerning these issues.
