For the first time, Toray CMA Spartanburg

ceremony, Mrs. Amy Wood, a local Emmy-Award winning TV anchor, presented each
award preceded by a video of the winning company. Mary Willard, CMA Spartanburg
plant’s HR/GA Manager received the trophy on behalf of the company from
Spartanburg Community College President, Mr. Henry C Giles. The other award

Proceeds from SCCF’s Economic Visionaries
event support student emergency funds, student book fund requests and general
scholarships administered by the Foundation. CMA Spartanburg Plant was happy to
be one of the Inventor level sponsors for the event. The relationship between
Spartanburg Community College and CMA Spartanburg Plant began during initial
construction of the plant in Spartanburg when they were gracious enough to
allow CMA offices to be housed in the SCC Tyger River Campus just up the road
from the construction site.
We are very honored to receive the award
and will continue to make efforts to contribute to Spartanburg Community College
and the community.
