2018 President’s Annual Report: Scholarship, Skit, Honoraries, Awards, & Officers

Our Annual May Luncheon is a time when we recognize our members and their many individual and collective accomplishments within The Service League of Greenville. There was much to celebrate for the 2017-2018 year as our outgoing President, Annelle West, presided over the final meeting of her tenure and a delicious meal at Rock Springs.

We announced the establishment of the SERVICE LEAGUE OF GREENVILLE scholarship — an endowment for a medical or nursing student in the Brody School of Medicine. With Mark Notestine, President, ECU Medical and Health Sciences Foundation President  and Jeff McPherson, Director of Development, ECU Medical and Health Sciences Foundation on hand to accept the “big” endowment check for $200,000.
