Cory E. Manning, partner at Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough, will serve as chair of the board. Scott Graves, president of the private business division at BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina, will serve as vice chair, and Derrick L. Williams, attorney at Williams & Roche, LLC, will serve as secretary and treasurer.

The Community Foundation stewards over $200 million in assets and has awarded over $255 million in grants and scholarships since its inception in 1984. The new board members will join current board members and Community Foundation staff in working to increase the impact of philanthropy throughout the Midlands region of South Carolina and beyond.

“We are fortunate to add this group of community-minded individuals to our board of trustees,” JoAnn Turnquist, president and CEO of Central Carolina Community Foundation, says. “The new members’ knowledge of our region and aptitude for service will help guide the Foundation’s investments in our community.”

The Foundation also expresses appreciation to its retiring trustees for their service: Scott McClelland and Candace C. Shiver.
