Tigerville, SC  –­ North Greenville University held a ceremonial unveiling of the new street name leading from Poinsett Street to the school’s Tim Brashier Campus at Greer on Friday, July 20. The street, formerly Ryans Corp Drive, is now named Walter Brashier Drive in honor of Dr. T. Walter Brashier, the graduate school’s namesake. 

 

Brashier and his wife, Christine, have been two of the most generous and faithful supporters of NGU. Their generosity to the university has spanned over four decades. Their first commitment was a downtown Greenville office building in the 1970s. Since that time, they have started an undergraduate scholarship fund, supported several capital projects, given the lead gift to launch the T. Walter Brashier Graduate School in 2005, and served on several university committees, boards, and councils.

A former top S.C. DOT official and defendant in several employment lawsuits is now working as a private consultant to the State Transportation Infrastructure Bank, which has financed large construction projects that critics contend were chosen primarily for political reasons.

Ronald Patton, an ex-Department of Transportation deputy secretary, told The Nerve he began working for STV Inc., a national transportation consulting company with three offices in South Carolina, a month after his June 2017 retirement from DOT. His annual salary when he left was $137,647.

Patton was DOT’s “liaison” to the Infrastructure Bank (STIB). His new consulting position essentially serves the same purpose as his former role, based on his statements to The Nerve and at a STIB board meeting last month, and the current contract between the STIB and STV.

I trust that your Independence Day celebration beginning of the month was meaningful and enjoyable at the same time.  Meaningful from the standpoint of understanding the struggle, commitment and sacrifice that our Founding Fathers and others who have followed in their footsteps made to secure the Blessings of Liberty and Freedom from tyranny.  Enjoyable as to I hope whether you went to the beach, the mountains or stayed at home, you were able to celebrate our freedom with family and friends alike.

While many take the summer off, here at the Greenville TEA Party, we recognize the importance of advancing the cause of Freedom in ALL seasons. 

The Greenville TEA Party has three exciting opportunities this summer that we would like to share with you:
