Jerry Garrett & Lawson Clary Honored as Board Directors of the Year

The Greater Easley Chamber of Commerce has honored Jerry Garrett with Garland & George-Purveyors of Quality Antiques and Lawson Clary with 5 Point Church as its Board Directors of the Year. 

Each year by secret ballot, the Board of Directors for the Greater Easley Chamber of Commerce selects a Director of the Year. This honor recognizes a Board member who has gone above and beyond the call of duty...someone who leads by example…someone who has kept others on course and motivated. 
Two important characteristics of effective leadership are putting others before self and serving with a team attitude. In 2019, the ballots from our Board of Directors resulted in a tie between these two dedicated directors who displayed these characteristics. Individually, Jerry and Lawson put the mission of the chamber and their role as a board member as a high priority. Together, they supported each other, as well as motivated the entire board of directors, chamber staff and our volunteers. Throughout the year, their actions continually expressed how important it was to honor their commitment to the board and the mission of the chamber. 

Please join the Greater Easley Chamber of Commerce and its Board of Directors in honoring Jerry Garrett and Lawson Clary as the 2019 Directors of the Year.
