COLUMBIA, S.C., June 7, 2012 - - Richardson, Plowden & Robinson, P.A. is pleased to announce that attorney Michelle Parsons Kelley was recently selected as this year’s “Face of Y’all,” which means she will be the 2012-2013 University of South Carolina (USC) Young Alumni Ambassador, representing the past ten years of USC graduates.
