Miracle Hill Ministries CEO Awarded Order of the Palmetto

Posted By Sandra Furnell, Communications & Marketing Director , Thursday, August 30, 2018

Miracle Hill Ministries’ longtime President/CEO, Reid Lehman, was awarded the Order of the Palmetto by SC Governor Henry McMaster at a ceremony held on August 27, 2018 at the Greenville Rescue Mission.  The Order of the Palmetto is a once-in-a-lifetime achievement and the state’s highest civilian honor awarded to citizens of South Carolina for extraordinary lifetime service and achievements of national or statewide significance.

The Governor commended Lehman for being a force for good in the Upstate and said, “Reid Lehman is not a man who says ‘we have problems, how do we fix it?’ Instead, he has a vision of where we want to go and says ‘Now let’s get there’.”  He added, “When you have strong people who are determined to get something good done, it is an unstoppable force. “

Lehman has provided leadership for the non-profit for nearly 35 years and has established numerous community partnerships to ensure that homeless children and adults receive compassionate care and resources to help them re-integrate into society.  He also served on the Board of Directors for TogetherSC, South Carolina’s only organization focused solely on supporting and strengthening the state’s nonprofit community through education, advocacy, communications, collaboration and leadership, for four years.

Deb Richardson-Moore, Pastor of Triune Mercy Center in Greenville, spoke at the award ceremony about Lehman’s efforts to coordinate the closure of ‘tent city’ and promote collaboration among agencies serving the homeless.  The resulting Homelessness White Paper and Greenville Homeless Alliance demonstrate “a partnership of funders, service providers, city and county in a way that would have been unthinkable a few years ago,” she said. “Our community is poised to create affordable housing, and I believe it’s because of Reid’s foresight.”

More than 100 people attended the award ceremony, which was held in the gymnasium at the Greenville Rescue Mission, the first of nine shelters spread across the Upstate. Upon receiving the award Reid said, “The sacrificial work at Miracle Hill is done by the folks on the front lines – those visiting foster homes, serving in cottages at the Children’s Home, the counselors and case managers at the missions. This much-appreciated recognition represents the people who really deserve it, the people who give their lives away every single day.”

About Miracle Hill Ministries
Miracle Hill Ministries is the Upstate’s largest, most comprehensive provider of services to homeless children and adults.  Serving the Upstate since 1937, Miracle Hill’s programs include rescue shelters for the homeless, residential addiction recovery, transitional housing, shelters for children, and foster care.  Miracle Hill’s eight thrift stores provide employment opportunities for the community as well as Miracle Hill guests transitioning out of programs. Miracle Hill has been recognized as a Certified Mission and has been awarded the Certificate of Excellence by City Gate Network, a distinction given to fewer than 30 missions nationwide. Additionally, Miracle Hill’s foster care program and group homes for children have been accredited by CARF International. For more information about Miracle Hill, please visit www.MiracleHill.org or call 864.268.4357.   Friend Miracle Hill on Facebook,  Twitter, and Instagram.

Greenville Literacy Association’s Board of Directors announced the acceptance of the voluntary resignation of Executive Director Jocelyn Slaughter effective August 24, 2018.
 
“Jocelyn has accepted a local opportunity that will not only allow her to continue to serve those needing a second chance but also to spend more time with her family,” said Ashlee Tolbert, Greenville Literacy’s board president. “I would like to thank Jocelyn for her hard work and commitment while at GLA. I have enjoyed working closely with her and I wish her nothing but success in all of her endeavors. She will be missed.”
 
In a statement, Slaughter said, “I am honored to have been chosen in 2016 as the Executive Director of Greenville Literacy Association, an organization dedicated to changing lives through the power of adult education and literacy. I am confident that the organization is in good hands and will continue to serve those needing its services.”
 
Tolbert added, “There is never a perfect time for transition, but our organization is equipped to navigate this change. Our donors, partners, staff and board of directors appreciate Jocelyn’s service to GLA and our community.”

GLA’s Board of Directors, under Tolbert’s leadership, will begin a search for a new Executive Director and will announce its Interim Executive Director in the near future.
