The Donor Appreciation dinner, held on September 19 at the home of Mandy and Holden Dubose, was a delightful event in near-perfect autumn weather where guests were thanked for gifts given during the 2011-2012 fiscal year. The Event Planning committee, which consisted of volunteers Gloria Edwards, Doris Gore, Merrie McLamb, Mandy Dubose, Mason and Patty Tarr, and Amelia Surratt did a beautiful job decorating. New SCC President Dr. Hutchens welcomed donors and offered the invocation, and Chuck Spell, Foundation President, spoke briefly on the important role SCC plays in our business community. Foundation Executive Director, Lisa Turlington introduced all of the Student ambassadors, and presented EXCEL winners and finalists with awards. The EXCEL winners were Kelly Jackson and Marvin RonDon and the EXCEL finalists were: Lynn Cavenaugh, Marlene Powell, Geneva Tatum and Dale C. Johnson. Steve Stefanovich, SCC Foundation board member, sincerely thanked donors for their generosity. Guests enjoyed a relaxing affair of live music from local musician Jonathan Custer and delicious hors d’oeuvres courtesy of the Ashford Inn, which kindly donated wine enjoyed by quests.
