Vordman Carlisle “Lisle” Traywick III has been elected editor-in-chief of the South Carolina Law Review, the state’s oldest and most prestigious legal publication.
Traywick is a second-year student at the University of South Carolina’s School of Law and an AC Flora High School graduate. He assumed the leadership of the student-managed and edited publication April 1.
“The Law Review has an increasing presence as an important source of information for both lawyers and academics. Lisle will do a superb job of continuing to build the Review’s reputation,” said Rob Wilcox, dean of the Law School.
Traywick received a bachelor’s degree in government with a concentration in political thought and a minor in economics in 2011 from Wofford College, where he graduated cum laude. Vick Traywick Donna Lang Foster
“I look forward to continuing the tradition of publishing the highest quality legal scholarship in the South Carolina Law Review while also enhancing alumni relations,” Traywick said.
Former editor-in-chief Thomas Limehouse said Traywick is an excellent successor.
“Lisle is well-regarded by his peers and is the consummate professional, demanding the highest quality of work from himself while respectfully leading and working with others to achieve a common goal,” Limehouse said.
The South Carolina Law Review was founded in 1948 but can be traced back to 1831 when the Carolina Bar Journal was briefly published in Columbia before the Civil War.
A giant gift from the heart
The $100 gift spoke volumes to the members of the Lexington Medical Center Foundation.
For 11-year-old Sophie Liles, the realities of cancer have been all too visible, after her grandfather passed away from brain cancer and her grandmother continues to battle an aggressive form of breast cancer.
The family struggles prompted the Chapin Elementary School student to look for a way to make a difference. So she decided to go door to door in her neighborhood to raise money for Lexington Medical Center’s lymphedema program, knowing that some patients can’t afford supplies for treatment.
Recently, a plastic sandwich bag with nearly $100 was delivered to the foundation’s office as a result of her efforts.
“I was very touched by the contribution that Sophie made to our program,” said Tori Gude, Lexington Medical Center’s director of rehabilitation services. “Her act of kindness will help our patients improve their quality of life.
“Sophie’s generosity and charitable contribution is a reminder to us all that giving back to our community only takes little time and a lot of heart.”
