. . .  develop a spirit of cooperation among students;

. . . create a sense of understanding between students and adult community leaders; and

“The contribution from Ashmore Brothers allows us to continue to offer the program at the high level our Junior Leadership Board of Regents has elevated our program to. We are very thankful for their support,” says Mark Owens, Director of Programs and Events.

Mikelle Porter, Leadership Development Chairman states, “It is truly an honor for the Junior Leadership Greer program to receive a presenting sponsorship from Ashmore Brothers, Inc.  The late Richard Ashmore helped begin the program and volunteered his time and service to our future leaders for years.  Today his memory continues to thrive in our community and in the Junior Leadership program.  We are grateful for the support and generous contribution to continue the success of the program into its twenty-third year.”
