GOOSE CREEK, S.C. (WCIV) — Today is graduation day for many high schoolers across the Lowcountry and we want to highlight these students' achievements.
For one Goose Creek High graduate, the road to this moment was anything but ordinary.
"I'm just ready to walk across that stage, grab that paper and get on with my life,” Kasheem Jenkins said.
The path this 2022 graduate took while crossing the stage at the North Charleston Coliseum was much easier than the path he took to get through school.
Kasheem was diagnosed with predominantly inattentive type ADHD, a form of the disorder that makes it difficult to focus, concentrate or complete tasks.
“I'm just emotional. It's like we're finally here. I didn't think I would see this day,” Kasheem’s mother Mari Jenkins said.
It’s a condition that affects over 13% of students in South Carolina, and for Kasheem it made school even more challenging. “It was a struggle. [There] was days that I wanted to give up,” Kasheem said.
Jenkins initially started school in Colombia. There, Kasheem thrived as the education system in the South American country had smaller classroom sizes and more one-on-one attention.
But it was a different story when he returned to the Lowcountry for high school.
“He gets to Goose Creek High School for ninth grade and blew it," Mari recalled. "He failed the whole entire [thing]. I think he passed one class."
This is a reality many kids with Attention Deficit Disorder go through. As the family points out, a lot of parents might not know the root of the problem or the resources to get help.
Kasheem tried medicine and other alternatives, but none of them did the job.
“I think in ninth grade, I almost gave up," he said. "I didn't want to do anything. I just wanted to get on [with my life] I wanted to drop out at a point.”
But it was a mother’s passion and determination that kept Kasheem on the right path.
“I spent so much time up there at the school, I thought I needed a paycheck,” Mari Jenkins said.
Kasheem discovered the Individual Education Program, or IEP, at Goose Greek High. It’s a state program, created in the early 2000s to give students with disabilities individualized support and resources for success.
With the support of family, friends and resource counselors at Goose Creek, Kasheem was able to get back on track.
In fact, he went from failing to honor roll in just two years and now he is set up to do even more post graduation.
“When he walks across the stage Friday, he's going to walk from being a high school student to an entrepreneur,” Mari said.
With the help of his mother, Kasheem is starting his own business, transporting dogs across the country for people who can’t. His company is called Esprit de Corps, and is a spin-off of Mari's company Semper Fi Pet Transportation service.
The transformation in Kasheem’s life is something he hopes will inspire others. “Don't let anything stop you from doing what you want to do," he said. "Go straight forward. Take risks.”
It’s also something his mother hopes will push parents just like her to never give up.
“I think the stigma is that these children are not smart and that is absolutely not true,” Mari said. “I encourage the parents to reach out. There are resources for you. Medication is one but it's not the answer. There are resources in the school system. You need to be proactive and go in there.”
ABC News 4 wants to hear more stories like Kasheem’s throughout the graduation season. You can submit info on fellow graduates to us at ABCNews4.com
2023 Christopher Parker (AC Flora): Parker is a new name that really caught our eyes on the floor. He is a 6’6, strong-built prospect but what really intrigued us was his versatility on the floor. He has the body to battle down low and be active on the boards, but also has guard-like skills, can rebound and push in transition, gets downhill and scores the ball, and also knock down shots as well.

2023 Christopher Parker (AC Flora): Parker is a new name that really caught our eyes on the floor. He is a 6’6, strong-built prospect but what really intrigued us was his versatility on the floor. He has the body to battle down low and be active on the boards, but also has guard-like skills, can rebound and push in transition, gets downhill and scores the ball, and also knock down shots as well. Parker is one that is flying a little under the radar but really played well throughout the weekend.
2023 Justin Britt (Goose Creek): Britt is one of the clear leaders for his team, as the 6’4 prospect plays strong. He excels on both ends of the floor, making plays on the offensive and defensive end, playing with great energy, and was strong at getting downhill. He has good athleticism in his game and can be used in several areas of the floor.
2023 Avante Parker (Gray Collegiate): One of two Gray Collegiate prospects that impressed, one can easily see why many schools are targeting Parker and why he holds multiple offers already. He stands at 6’9, can operate from multiple levels, and really be a tough matchup on the floor. He is comfortable in stepping out and putting it on the deck to score but also uses his size and athleticism to attack the boards and finish around the paint.
2023 Montravis White (Gray Collegiate): White is the other player for Gray Collegiate that really caught out eyes. Why? He is a 5’11 point guard that simply just made plays after plays; he brings a toughness to the court, plays with tremendous energy, isn’t afraid of the bright lights and hitting big shots but also made plays for his teammates. White really showed that he is coachable and wants to only get better as a player, learning from his mistakes and leading the charge for his team.
2023 Jamarcus Wilkins (Dorman): Wilkins was one that we brought to our platform a while back and we have seen this young man really take strong steps in developing his game. Wilkins continues to be active down low, has only gotten stronger, uses his length to impact on the defensive end, and has gotten better on the offensive end. Wilkins will be a key piece for Dorman this year.
2023 Arden Conyers (Westwood): Conyers is another prospect that has really seen his recruitment take off and it doesn’t take long to see why. At 6’7, Conyers has great size, creates well off the dribble, can knock down shots from multiple levels, finishes well over defenders, and can be very versatile on the floor. Operates from multiple levels and really has seen his recruitment take off, and I don’t see that slowing down.

COLUMBIA — Gov. Henry McMaster struck $52.7 million in earmarks from the Legislature’s nearly $14 billion spending package, saying legislators are still using taxpayers’ money for pet projects without properly vetting them.
In all, McMaster vetoed 73 items, but 10 of those are policy directives that don’t spend money, and 29 officially spend just $1 each, though they don’t really allocate anything. They were essentially place-holders for negotiations between the House and Senate.
It is only the second year the budget has publicly listed local projects funded at legislators’ request, not the agency the money is funneled through. While thanking legislators for finally disclosing the previously hidden spending, McMaster said it’s not enough to simply list the sponsor and recipient.
“Without sufficient context, description, justification or information regarding the project and how the recipient intends to spend the funds, the public cannot evaluate the earmark’s merit,” he wrote in his June 22 veto letter.
“Moreover, no matter how deserving the project, the public must be confident that proper accountability measures are in place to ensure the funds are appropriately spent,” he added, repeating his request that legislators create a public, competitive grants process for such spending.
For the first time, McMaster asked legislators sponsoring earmarks to send his office details about their request to include how it serves the public and the project’s budget. Most sponsors complied, corresponding with the governor’s office as late as June 21.
Many of the earmarks McMaster got little-to-no explanation for were struck, including $300,000 for a Goose Creek library, $750,000 for a library in Turbeville, $2 million for a community center in West Orangeburg, and $5 million for Socastee Park in Horry County.
“We did as much research as we could,” he told reporters in releasing his vetoes. “In some cases, we still have no idea what the money’s going for.”
But communication alone didn’t save items from McMaster’s veto pen, as in the case of the largest single item struck, by far: $25 million for a quantum computing operation in Columbia’s Five Points.
The senator who requested the one-time expense, Democrat Dick Harpootlian, said South Carolina has a unique opportunity to use next-generation powerful technology to turn Columbia into a research hub, and he’s hopeful his colleagues will vote next week to override the veto. The money would buy a quantum computer, which can make calculations far faster than even supercomputers, and set up a nonprofit to rent time on it to entrepreneurs and researchers, he said.
The terms of the potential buy handled through the state Department of Commerce are good only through next month, he said.
“This is transformative technology,” Harpootlian told The Post and Courier. “Columbia is never going to be a tourist destination. We’re not going to have a huge manufacturing plant. This is an opportunity for us to go in a different direction to be a technology hub, a technology magnet.”
He intentionally did not link the project to the nearby University of South Carolina, which is classified as a research college.
“We don’t believe government, whether it’s a university or any government agency, would be agile and adept enough to make (the technology) available to entrepreneurs,” Harpootlian said. “This will make Columbia a magnet for the brightest minds.”
McMaster countered the budget directive creates a “dangerous precedent” that skirts state procurement laws. Whether the state should set up a nonprofit to own such technology should be handled through separate legislation that goes through the normal process of public testimony and debate, he said in his veto letter.
Other spending struck includes:
• $7 million for a cultural welcome center in Orangeburg, for which McMaster said he received incomplete information. It remains questionable whether taxpayer money should be spent on a project with “no demonstrated need or community support,” according to his veto letter.
• $500,000 for upgrades to the John McKissick Field at Summerville High School, sponsored by House Judiciary Chairman Chris Murphy, R-North Charleston.
“Coach McKissick’s legacy is unquestioned,” McMaster wrote. He “brought acclaim to South Carolina high school football and touched countless lives.”
But upgrades to high school athletic facilities should be funded by the school district or athletic boost club, he wrote.
• $300,000 to the Charleston Wine + Food Festival, sponsored by Rep. Leon Stavrinakis, D-Charleston. The event’s move to North Charleston prompted the city of Charleston to stop funding it. The future of the event should be resolved before any state tax dollars are spent on it, McMaster wrote.
The Legislature will return next week to consider McMaster’s vetoes before the fiscal year starts July 1. Traditionally, most of the governor’s vetoes are overturned.

Sitting out a possession, Drew Moore watched a teammate heave a long touchdown pass then sprinted across the grass to celebrate with the receiver in the end zone. To Moore, this little moment in a meaningless 7-on-7 game was far from meaningless.
The Goose Creek High School senior quarterback’s actions and words carry more weight than ever as a new season approaches. Gone from the 2021 squad is the two-time Region 7-AAAAA player of the year, a Div. I offensive lineman and two of the best receivers in the Lowcountry.
Moore, a returning all-region pick, will be the trigger man again for the Gators.
“You get a little more leeway as a sophomore,” Moore said. “I know as a senior there’s little room for error, especially from the mental side of it. Every rep counts. Every snap counts. Every play counts. You can’t make mistakes.”
Moore is embracing the lofty expectations of a third-year starter. They are going to be there anyway so he might as well meet them head on. Goose Creek coach Jason Winstead called his veteran quarterback one of the team’s hardest workers.
“I kind of like being in the role of the one who everybody looks at,” Moore said. “I can play that role. I can be the leader everybody needs. There’s definitely a difference in being a sophomore starter versus a senior starter. You realize the importance of putting in the work every day. You can’t take a day off if you want to be a region champion, a state champion and win 10 games in a season.”
Moore threw for 2,552 yards and 27 touchdowns as a junior and 1,717 yards and 18 touchdowns as a sophomore. He’s aiming to take another step forward.
The Gators will lean on Moore a bunch early while they get the running back situation figured out and break in a few new players around their signal caller. Running back Demetri Simmons amassed over 3,000 yards and 33 touchdowns the last couple seasons. He’s at South Carolina State along with offensive lineman Jayden Johnson.
Receivers Khyon Smith and James Levine moved on, too, after hauling in 91 passes and 21 touchdowns for almost 1,700 yards last fall.
“He’s going to have to figure it out,” Winstead said. “We’re going to have to figure it out. He knows it. The last couple years, teams geared up to stop Demetri. It opened up a lot of things for Drew. Now, the goal is going to be to stop Drew. He’s going to have to be patient and take what teams give us. He’ll have to let the plays come to him until we learn to run the football better.”
Moore and Winstead believe the pieces will all come together when it’s time, though. They’ve seen the effort in the weight room and think there is more talent in the locker room than some people know. It’s not hurt the Gators picked up a transfer from Berkeley High School, receiver Troy Reid.
Reid was an all-region pick for the Stags as a junior.
“Building that new chemistry is something you’ve got to take on and learn,” Moore said. “I feel like we’ve done a good job with that this summer.”
The first official practice is set for July 29, with scrimmages and jamborees allowed Aug. 4.
Squads can open up the regular season on Aug. 19, and the Gators open up at home against South Florence. The Gators head to Sumter Sept. 2 and Beaufort Sept. 9.
It’s a tough stretch but Moore has been here before.
“He just keeps getting better,” Winstead said. “It’s nice to have a leader on the field. He’s the point man on offense. He knows where everybody is supposed to be. He can make all the throws. He’s one of our hardest workers. Like every quarterback, he’s got to take care of the ball.”
