The 2017 Jo-Nathan foundation Charity luau

This year's Charity Luau was a great success and the most highly anticipated event since the one last year. It was held again at the National Wild Turkey Federation's Outdoor Pavillion at the Palmetto Shooting Complex in Edgefield, SC. The guest speaker this year was Miss South Carolina USA, the beautiful Miss Megan Gordon. The Junior-Guest Speaker was Miss Jeniyha Padgett (a camper-turned-counselor for the Jo-Nathan Foundation "Be the Change Camp).The two Humanitarian Award winners that were recognized for their efforts and achievements with youth in and around the community were Mrs. Jackie Glover Kennion and Mrs. Trudi Belcher. If you missed it this year, we have a feeling you definitely won't miss what is in store for next year.

The Jo-Nathan Foundation Shadowing Program gives selected high-school juniors and seniors the opportunity to learn first-hand about careers and the required job-skills needed for success by participating in real-life workplace experiences. 

Students spend two weeks at a location that fits the interests and abilities of the youth. The student spends up to 20 hours per week at a job site and shadows selected employees to learn more about that particular career path.  At the end of the two weeks, the student receives a stipend along with invaluable experience!

Your company may participate in the Jo-Nathan Foundation's shadowing program by emailing us at or by calling Reggie Simpkins at 864-617-6850.
