Spartanburg Community College is accepting nominations of companies to be considered for economic visionary awards. The college will recognize the contributions of Upstate businesses at the 2018 Economic Visionaries Celebration on March 22 at the Spartanburg Marriott. Four companies from Spartanburg, Union and Cherokee counties will be named "Economic Visionaries" based on their company size and significant contributions in transforming the Upstate business community.
Upstate business professionals and community residents are being asked to submit nominations of exceptional companies to be considered for the awards. The SCC Foundation will accept nominations through Feb. 9 via the SCC website where an application and award guidelines are available to download.
"Our communities are fortunate to have visionaries that display strong leadership. This is especially true for our business and industry — they are the heart of our community. They add wealth to goods and services. They provide jobs for our citizens. They support and encourage good government, quality education and are supportive of a healthy, clean environment. They enable us to live and work in a healthy prosperous community," said Henry Giles, SCC president, in a news release.
Event sponsorship opportunities are available and can be found on the event website, as well as individual tickets which will be available online for purchase later this month.
Last year’s Economic Visionary Award recipients were Broad River Electric Cooperative Inc. in Gaffney, Atchinson Transportation Services in Spartanburg, Timken Co. Tyger River Plant in Union and BMW Manufacturing Inc. in Greer.
