Hi my name is Dakota, I just moved down to South Carolina in June of 2018 after completing high school in Michigan. I rather push a broom instead of a snow shovel however I hope to start college in Michigan winter of 2018-2019 for professional sales.

Wellford SC is a pleasant place to raise children. Neighbors are friendly and the School District is very academically challenged. The only thing I would change would be a new library because the one in the city is to small.
Landlords could update some houses.
