RIDGELAND, SC (WSAV) – The Antioch Educational Center in Ridgeland helps thousands of people in rural areas of Jasper, Hampton, and Southern Beaufort County every year. Thanks to a grant, they will be aiding even more people, one ride at a time.
The agency started a decade ago with the plan to help with job placement in Jasper County.
But quickly they determined there was much more to do.
“Quickly we found out when we start over 10 years ago that there was a need more pressing than training job preparedness,” said Jackie O’Bannon, Antioch Executive Director.
