Once through law school, Riley isn’t yet sure where she’ll settle. While she’s considering a metropolitan area such as New York City, she also knows smaller towns such as Manning and Summerton still have need of corporate lawyers. Riley has maintained a 4.5 GPA her freshman year, and she would love to have the opportunity for dual enrollment in the Criminal Justice Technology department at Central Carolina Technical College through their F.E. Dubose campus. At Manning High, she is on the debate team and the yearbook staff. She also volunteers in the tutoring program on Wednesday nights at Antioch AME Church in Pinewood and is a member of the choir. She loves to read and write. “I feel like writing is an escape, and I have this deep love for English,” said Riley. She also avidly watches the news to learn about legal issues and political issues which are current and relevant. Riley has been seeking donations to offset the high cost of the event and travel. She spoke at the Summerton Town Council meeting in early May. While the Council cannot donate, individual councilmembers as well as those attending the session contributed. If you would like to assist the Riley family with the expenses of her trip, please send checks to Jadia Riley at 3856 Elliot Road, Pinewood, SC 29125. You may also call 803-452-7028 or 803-225-5936 with any questions.
