Clemson Child Development Center



On a bright, crisp early November afternoon, seventy-five people came together at the Clemson Child Development Center to celebrate the past and invest in the future. They were welcomed by Mayor J.C. Cook and were given a brief history of CCDC by Dr. Paul Pritchard. Dr. Pritchard's message was entertaining and inspiring. Guests were entertained by the Freeway Church Gospel Choir, enjoyed a delicious buffet of heavy hors d’oevres, and had a tour of the classrooms.

The event committee, composed of Ruth Andreasen, Carol Salter, Judy Benson, Barbara Clark, Dianne Haselton, Ethel Pettigrew, Connie Powell, Cathy Turner, and Mable Wynn, would like to thank the following sponsors: The Clemson Community Foundation, Park Sterling Bank, Wells Fargo Advisors, Calhoun Dental Associates, Edward Jones, Gretchen Griffin / Bob Hill Realty, and Whitener, Pettigrew & Company. Their sponsorship will help CCDC continue to invest in the future through scholarships for deserving families.

The committee also wishes to acknowledge and thank Palmetto Spirits, The Arts Center, Tiger Lily Gifts and Flowers, Shannon Clark and the Freeway Church Gospel Choir for their donations of beverages, decorations, time and talent.
