Marlboro County is not as bad as people make it out to be. It is not the safest place, but it not the most dangerous either. The school system is horrible. Athletics are more important than academics.
It's my home. I was born and raised here, it's where my family lives. The town is small and everyone knows everyone and that to me makes it safe because everybody is like family. We take care of our own and help when needed and receive help when needed.
I am not a native of Bennettsville, SC but I have been a resident for 23 years. I can say that the town does not seem to have grown much in 23 years. This is an asset for retirees, but not so much for young couples raising families. It is a quiet, warm and friendly town.
I was born and raise in Bennettsville,SC. Our school education is not that great I feel like we need more teachers to help the young ones. Bennettsville is a great place to spend time with family and friends. It's a lot of places to choose from to explore and learn history.
A high poverty town, a seasonal town that relies on seasonal traffic for improvements and seasonal jobs to feed the local employment base. This town needs a major industry that is year round to help improve their economic development. This county lost its Hospital due to having too many people with no insurance. The economic damage was done way before Obamacare to help save the facility.
I enjoy my town being close with other citizens in the community. We have parades, festivals, and special needs parties that I enjoy volunteering in. We have a lot of history here so every time I go on a tour, it allows me to see my home town from a different perspective. One thing that I would like to see change, is the education. Many residents in my community have not went to college, so it isn't easy for people to get jobs. Job opportunities never come here because the people are not capable of working them. This turns our society to a "poor" community. I know our people are capable of doing great tings, but we don't have the resources to do so. This results in our students going to college, depending on scholarships.
I'm new to this site so as of right now there is nothing i would like to change but so far i like it.
The address provided for this area is my home address lived in since I was very young. The atmosphere is relatively quiet in terms of violence and is very low in crime rates. Compared to other areas that I have been to, (which are limited compared to what the country has to offer) this area in particular is peaceful and is not a place that I would worry about as far as anyone getting seriously hurt due to an enemy--if there are any--being close by; the neighbors are pretty much content with each other. To me, the future of this area will remain as such--peaceful, yet full of people who care about each other.
We have no opportunities to get jobs
The local businesses are average.
There are a few factorial companies that offer jobs. There are a few jobs offered in restaurants, local businesses, and family businesses. Moreover, there are job opportunities in the health care facilities.
