The Greater Clover and Lake Wylie chambers of commerce hosted a May 15 luncheon, “Today’s Students, Tomorrow’s Leaders,” at Lake Wylie Christian Assembly.
The chambers recognized the students’ work and provide a networking opportunity where top graduating seniors of Clover High School could interact with business and community leaders and each other.
The event was attended by members of the two chambers and by the Clover Optimist and Clover and Lake Wylie Rotary clubs.
Nina Feemster, president of the Greater Clover chamber, welcomed everyone, and the Rev. Billy Ginn of Lake Wylie Christian Assembly gave the invocation. Lunch was catered by Jackson’s Kitchen in Clover.
The guest speaker was Clover native Joe Wright, who graduated from Clover High School in 2008 and enrolled at the University of South Carolina to major in finance and marketing.
