The Kershaw County Chamber of Commerce announced the newest additions to its board of directors during its meeting Thursday. Robbie Powers, owner of Powers Funeral Home, will serve as chamber president.

His term will begin on July 1.

“I just want to say thank you to the outgoing board members for their volunteer service to the chamber and the community, and I look forward to working with the incoming board members,” said Liz Horton, executive director of the chamber.

Additionally, Richard “Chip” Galloway of Galloway Enterprises/KFC will serve as vice president of organizational improvement (first vice president), April Jones with the Target Distribution Center will serve as vice president of education, and John Thomas of Substation II in Lugoff will serve as vice president of business and community involvement (second vice president).

Dennis Stuber with First Citizens Bank will continue to serve as the vice president of finance and Teri Teed with the Carolina Cup Racing Association will continue as the vice president of tourism during the upcoming year. Deborah Outlaw with Heritage Community Bank will serve as the chamber’s immediate past president.

As incoming president, Powers wasted no time getting to work, appointing Dr. Tim Hardee with Central Carolina Technical College, Gary Brown with Morningside of Camden, and George Gibson with Fitness Zone to one-year terms on the chamber’s board of directors. Those members will replace outgoing board members Marion Kelly with FATZ Café, Lynne Robinson with AllStaff Employment Services and Billy Watkins with Edward Jones.

The board also unanimously elected five new members to the board during the meeting: Sue Hornsby with the UPS Store, Kevin Rhodes with the Kershaw County School District, Mindy Taylor of Progress Energy, Joe Upchurch of Upchurch & Jowers Insurance Agency Inc. and Townley Redfearn of Coldwell Banker United REALTORS. They will all serve three-year terms, replacing Powers, Outlaw, Brian Smith of Carolina Motorsports Park, Kershaw County Economic Development Director Nelson Lindsay and Kershaw County School District Superintendent Dr. Frank Morgan.

“I have enjoyed working with all of you this year as president, and I look forward to working with the new board as past president,” Outlaw said at the end of the meeting. “So I just want to say thank you and I appreciate everything.”
