Sara Madani, Sam Phillips

“The Hounds” is a band formed by sophomores Finch Webster and Chapman Atkins. Recently, they performed on the Presnell lawn during lunch, and in the past, locations like The Fr8 Yard and RJ Rockers.

The Little Free Food Pantry of Spartanburg was the idea of Anne Dobson. She began noticing  homeless people congregated in Richardson Park downtown and near her church, First Presbyterian. She sympathized greatly with them and knew that she wanted to do something for other people struggling with similar situations.
