GREENVILLE CHAMBER REQUESTING TURLEY AWARD NOMINATIONS
The Greenville Chamber of Commerce is again requesting nominations for the Gerald Turley Memorial Award. The honor is presented each year to a deserving citizen who demonstrates outstanding community leadership.
There is no nomination form. If you know someone who has the qualities exemplified by this award, please write a letter to the Chamber of Commerce describing why you feel that person should receive the award. Nominations that were submitted in previous years, and not awarded, will also be considered. If you submitted a nominee in the past two years, it is not necessary to resubmit their name.
The Gerald Turley Memorial Award Recipient is selected by a special Chamber of Commerce Committee. Last year's recipient was Robert "Ish" Smith.
