As if you needed another reason to move into an apartment in Beaufort, SC, but here is a good one, your kids.
An organization founded by former Secretary of State Colin Powell has named Beaufort County one of America's best communities for youth.
The honor was announced Wednesday by the America's Promise Alliance. The alliance considers the reduction of school dropout rates, health initiatives and opportunities for students to help others.
The Beaufort application highlighted the work of several agencies, including Together for Beaufort County, a group of about 110 professionals who help coordinate services for children and families.
The award includes $2,500, a conference to share ideas with community leaders and access to grant money.
Powell and his wife, Alma, started the America's Promise Alliance in 1997.
