Nearly 30 Winthrop University students spent six days in Charlotte, N.C., as part of a political conventions class. They heard speakers, watched protests and mingled with thousands of people in the Queen City attending the convention festivities. The class was taught by Karen Kedrowski, chair of Winthrop's Department of Political Science, and adjunct professor Katarina Moyon. Over the Labor Day weekend, college students from 10 other S.C. institutions joined the Winthrop group. Among the speakers to talk to the larger group was U.S. Rep. Jim Clyburn, D-S.C., the third ranking leader in the Democratic Party. The group also heard a panel discussion with Chelsea Clinton and listened to a comparison of American and British elections by Lord Stuart Wood.
