The Greenwood County Community Foundation awarded a $3,000 grant to the Greenwood County Community Improvement Foundation to help establish a South Carolina Student Leadership Conference. This will be an approach to serving Greenwood County high school students, grades 10 through 12, interested in developing leadership skills to advance their future careers. The conference will be Sept. 28 at Lander University. Here, members of the Student Leadership Conference Planning Committee stand with an enlarged donation check.
