Annual Chamber, Board banquet sold out

GREENVILLE — The identity of the newest Greenville Worthy Citizen will be revealed during tonight’s Greenville Chamber of Commerce/Board of Development Annual Banquet.

The event, scheduled for 6 p.m. at the Fletcher Warren Civic Center, is sold out.

A committee of the past five Worthy Citizen recipients chooses the next.

Roz Lane was named as Worthy Citizen at last year’s banquet and is expected to be on hand to name the next recipient of the distinction.

Jack Finney helped establish the Worthy Citizen award. Finney was named Worthy Citizen himself, claiming the award in 1988.

In fact, according to noted local historian W. Walworth Harrison, the trophy was originally known as “The Jack Finney Worthy Citizen Award”, and was begun in 1947, when Robert Henson of Henson-Kickernick was president of the Chamber.

This year’s banquet keynote speaker is Zachary Reeder, a Greenville High School graduate, who has a successful career as an aviation engineer.

Reeder is a graduate of Texas A&M University’s with a degree in aerospace engineering. He currently works at Scaled Composites, an aerospace and specialty composites development company located in Mojave, Calif., alongside aviation pioneer Burt Rutan.

The banquet will also feature the introduction of the Chamber of Commerce Board and the Board of Development.
