September 2015 Caring for the Carolinas Award

JACK ROPER ON CAM
Jack Roper here, stopping by the Carolina Campus here in Union. We’re going to surprise a young lady with our Caring for the Carolinas Award. Her name is Barbara Rippy. Come with me and we’ll do that.

ALICE TAYLOR-COLBERT – USC UNION
Barbara Rippy Gave us funds for this student center we are sitting in right now. She gave in honor and memory of her husband Bobby Rippy. A new Student Center courtyard that we’re going to be building, and hopefully open in the spring of 2016.

TORANCE INMAN – UNION CHAMBER OF COMMERCE
Involved in the community, helping the community, helping the university, helping Meals on Wheels, helping the Miracle League, doing things through their church, Grace United Methodist Church, and just tons and tons of things throughout Union County. And seldom a week goes by that I don’t get a call, or have received a call from Barbara asking me about things that we can do to help improve downtown Union, help improve the county, and getting the name of Union out throughout the Upstate.

ALICE TAYLOR-COLBERT – USC UNION
Here at USC Union, we have found an angel, and we all love her dearly.

Barbara, you win a free Thickburger from Hardees, every week for the next year. We want to give you our Caring for the Carolinas award. And we do want to thank Hardee’s and Bath Fitter and Harrison White, Smith & Coggins the attorneys. You are the girl for September that has worked so hard. Congratulations. I hear applause, I hear applause! She didn’t know it, it was a surprise.
