Many local businesses partners and professions from the area were represented including Boeing South Carolina among others. One portion of the event included words of advice from current college student that had connections to the high schools present and a law clerk from Evan Guthrie Law Firm, Kimaya Brown. Kimaya, a senior at Charleston Southern University was on stage in the school theater with students from colleges such as University of South Carolina, Clemson, College of Charleston, Wofford, and Coastal Carolina University and offered words of wisdom to students and parents in attendance. Attorney Evan Guthrie held down a table that allowed interested students to stop by and ask questions about the legal profession and lawyers. Many students and parents came by the table to chat and find out answers to inquiries such as the difficulty level of obtaining a law degree and passing the South Carolina bar exam, to how much time should a current student devote to studying if one wanted to go to law school, and what the employment prospects looked like for different legal careers and areas of law such as criminal law and family law.
This was the second Higher Learning Academy event that Mr. Guthrie attended for the current school year and the second year in a row that he had participated.
