Class Year: 1980
News: I may have said May 3 when I sent this news last night and need to correct it. Ashley Carder (Class of 1980) is being awarded the Jean Laney Harris Folk Heritage Award for 2012 by the SC Arts Commission. The award ceremony is scheduled for May 3 (I think I originally said March 3). Ashley taught himself fiddling in the Old Time and Bluegrass traditions, sought out all the old living masters of the art he could find to learn from them, and has been passing that accumulated knowledge along to the young folks. He spent much time recording and preserving renditions by his mentors so that others could benefit from his learning experience. I told him recently that he was finally putting his degree in Sociology to work in that effort.
