Focus on The Palmetto State

April 2015 at 9:30 am

In segment one we spoke with Nika White, Vice President of Diversity and Inclusion at the Greenville Chamber.  They are hosting the 2015 ACE Leadership Symposium on April 23rd.  This workshop will address ways to advance minority leadership in the Greenville community.


In segment two we visited with Darren Martin and Regina Brook-Gilmore of the Chapman Foundation.  They are hosting their annual fashion show in May with all proceeds going to their scholarship programs, which are awarded each year to deserving high school seniors. 


In our next segment, Paul Howell of South Carolina Honor Flights shared information about their next trip to Washington, DC in May.  They take WW II and Korean War veterans to DC for the day to visit the war memorials.  This is an all-expense paid trip that proves to be a huge success and highlight for these veterans.


In our last segment we spoke with Connie Lanzl, the President of Junior Achievement Upstate.  Junior Achievement has worked with upstate children since the 1970’s helping them learn and experience the free enterprise system.  Now JA is working to prepare children for the jobs of the future.
