YEScarolina Announces New Executive Director, Tracy Bradshaw

Posted By Administration, Friday, October 26, 2018
YESCAROLINA ANNOUNCES NEW EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR AT 9TH ANNUAL GALA
TRACY BRADSHAW TAKES THE HELM OF YOUTH ENTREPRENEURSHIP-FOCUSED NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION
 
The YEScarolina 9th Annual Gala was held the evening of Friday, October 12th at the Gaillard Center, the organization’s biggest fundraiser to benefit YEScarolina’s mission to empower South Carolina’s youth through entrepreneurship. This year’s Fête for the Future of Entrepreneurship recognized teachers and students from across the state, featured a Student Business Showcase, a live and silent auction, entertainment provided by Plane Jane, and a formal dinner.
 
Among the biggest announcements of the evening was the introduction of YEScarolina’s incoming Executive Director, Tracy Bradshaw. A 1995 graduate of an exemplary youth program Upward Bound inspired Tracy Bradshaw to pursue a career in the field of youth work. Tracy has devoted the last two decades towards alleviating the effects of poverty on youth in rural western NY. She innovatively designed nationally recognized programs that met community needs while incorporating the voice of the youth. As an advocate and experienced leader, her focus is on strengths-based servant leadership.
 
Bradshaw has a broad experience in working in rural communities and will be instrumental in expanding YEScarolina’s initiatives into more schools in all corners of South Carolina. Under her leadership, YEScarolina aims to make an even bigger impact on young people through entrepreneurship. Programs like YEScarolina’s annual Business Plan Competition will continue to connect students with new opportunities, mentors, and seed money to help fund their businesses. Many of these students from this past year’s initiatives were in attendance at the Gala.
 
Business Plan Competition winner Samantha Kutcher was honored as the 2018 Ron Motley Award Recipient for her work and dedication to her own nonprofit organization, Prepare4Work. Prepare4Work empowers special needs adults in our community by teaching them the skills they need to stay competitive in the workforce. Siada Tisdale, Business Plan Competition finalist, was recognized as 2018’s Outstanding SC Entrepreneur Student of the Year, joining her teacher at Kingstree Senior High School onstage. Angelia Jackson was honored as Entrepreneurship Teacher of the Year, an award sponsored by Atlantic Coast Advisory Group.
 
This was YEScarolina’s primary fundraiser of the year and its most successful since the organization’s establishment in 2004. Funds raised at the gala benefit YEScarolina, enabling this local 501c3 nonprofit organization to provide entrepreneurship training to South Carolina teachers and empower students throughout the state with a meaningful and experiential entrepreneurship education that is relevant to the real world.

The South Carolina Ovarian Cancer Center Foundation welcomes a new ED!

Posted By Administration, Monday, October 22, 2018

The South Carolina Ovarian Cancer Foundation is pleased to announce that Stephanie Henkin will be stepping into the role of Executive Director. Stephanie is not new to the foundation, in fact, she is one of our own. She has served as a board member since 2009 and has played an integral part in helping our foundation continue to be successful in supporting those who are currently fighting ovarian cancer as well as offering continued support to the survivors. Stephanie will be responsible for managing our board and volunteer groups. She will serve as the main public contact and spokesperson for the organization, and will represent the foundation in all professional business capacities.

Stephanie and her husband Chad have four girls and two boys ranging in age from twenty to six. Both Stephanie and her husband have a passion for helping others, traveling, watching their children play sports, and spending time with family.

 

A note from the Director:

I am thrilled to be stepping into this new role of Executive Director for a foundation that I love. I have been touched by this form of cancer in various ways; from the diagnosis, fight, and ultimately the passing of my mother to the knowledge of the presence of the BRCA gene in my sister, to which she decided to stand up to Ovarian cancer and had a complete hysterectomy.

 

I have seen this foundation touch so many women’s lives since I’ve been a part of it and I want to continue to see it thrive for years to come. I am dedicated to doing all that I can to help support this foundation. I will be working hand in hand with our generous sponsors, numerous volunteers, amazing survivors, and the wonderful women on the board to ensure that the foundation continues to strive to improve the health of women through education on the warning signs of ovarian cancer, support those diagnosed with the disease, and promote ovarian cancer research.

 

Thank you for trusting me to take on this role and for continuing to support such a powerful foundation. We love what we do and we do it because of you.

 

 Best,

Stephanie Henkin, Executive Director

Stephanie Rudisill Henkin
