FORUM SERIES: Desire to Leave a Legacy

Wednesday, January 27th, 6:30pm (NEW TIME)


We each have the ability to make a significant impact on our community, families, organizations, and world. Regardless of intelligence, financial means, gender, race, or other factors, this ability for impact…when engaged…establishes legacies that live beyond our person or our organizations. In fact, as we age, the question of our life’s legacy is something with which we must all come to terms. That’s where we find ourselves in this Forum, stealing one of the themes from Uncle Vanya, and placing it under our community’s microscope. Join us as we share perspectives from people who are in various stages of their legacies and leaving a lasting impact on our community.

Our panel will feature some prominent names from the city of Greenville: Mayor Knox White, Reid Lehman and Fred Cartwright.

Knox White has served as Mayor of Greenville since December 1995. As Mayor, he has the goal of making the city of Greenville the most beautiful and livable city in America. He has emphasized neighborhood revitalization, economic development, and transformational projects for downtown.

Reid Lehman served as President / CEO for Miracle Hill Ministries for over 30 years. During his tenure there, his work included all aspects of leadership for the organization, supporting Miracle Hill’s governing board, helping define and support the culture, securing needed resources and representing the ministry.

Frederick (Fred) M. Cartwright, Jr. is the Executive Director of Clemson University’s International Center for Automotive Research (CU-ICAR). Prior to joining CU-ICAR, he spent 32+ years at General Motors, including assignments in manufacturing, engineering, planning, corporate development and M&A.

Our moderator for the evening will be Jonathan Parker, Director of City Involvement for Fellowship Greenville.

Remember, we will be starting at a new time: 6:30pm. And as always, this is FREE and OPEN to the public.
