Broad River Electric Cooperative received an Economic Visionary Award from Spartanburg Community College on March 30.
The cooperative was one four companies honored that have invested in the economic and educational success of the Upstate. SCC President Henry Giles said the college started planning the Economic Visionary award event a year ago to recognize innovations by companies in supporting South Carolina’s new economy.
“We are humbled and honored by this award, but it comes not just because of recent accomplishments, but because of the longstanding commitment our board of trustees and our staff have made to the communities we serve,” Broad River Electric CEO Terry Mallard said. “We will continue to partner with entities like Spartanburg Community College to improve the quality of life in the Upstate.”
