108-Year-Old Columbia Woman Honored For Civil Rights Advocacy

A Columbia woman is the latest recipient of the state's highest civilian honor. 

Donella Brown Wilson is 108-years-old and yesterday Governor Henry McMaster awarded her with the Order of the Palmetto. 

Wilson is likely one of the first African-American women to vote in South Carolina and her family says she probably hasn't missed a single vote since. 

She has been a champion of civil rights and worked as a teacher for nearly 40 years.
