Public Servant

FLORENCE, S.C. — Florence-Darlington Technical College interim President Ed Bethea received the inaugural public servant of the year award at the Greater Florence Chamber of Commerce Outlook Luncheon Thursday afternoon. 

Dr. Fred Carter, president of Francis Marion University, presented Bethea the award shortly after 1 p.m. in the ballroom of the Florence Center.

FLORENCE, S.C. – David Alford, director of the Florence County Voters Registration and Election Commission, has served the county since 2009. What he likes most about the position is being a public servant and running a department that’s vital to the existence of government in Florence and the state and running it with integrity and a knowledgeable staff.
