Rick Wade on Education
"I had very humble beginnings," he says. "A father who didn't graduate from high school, was a fork lift operator in the textile mills, a mother who graduated from what then was called Lancaster Training School and was a nurse's assistant her entire life. And six of us; five boys and one girl and we all went to the public schools. All of my brothers; four other brothers had distinguished military careers, following in my father's footsteps as a war veteran. And I was the first person in my family to pursue advanced education at the University of South Carolina and then ultimately at Harvard University."
Wade believes he can articulate a vision--one focused on education and jobs, among other things--that many South Carolinians would agree with. He said he would take "my message to the people, wherever they are, whoever they are."
