Andrew Folks, President of the Five Point (Columbia) Rotary Club has been named by The State newspaper as one of the top 20 business leaders under the age of 40 for 2014. Three of these 20 are Rotarians in District 7770, including Folks, John Johnston (Columbia Rotary Club) and Lucas Clamp (Rotary Club of Lexington).
Five Points Rotarian Jenny Isgett was selected for 20 Under 40 in 2013. Two in a row for Five Points Rotary! No other Rotary Club in the Columbia area has this distinction. Who is the next Five Points Rotarian to achieve this honor?
President Andrew’s title at the SC Power Team is the “existing business/industry manager”. That means that once a company comes to South Carolina, it is his job to keep them here. Since Boeing and BMW are still here, it must mean that President Andrew is doing his job. He says he is ready to keep Airbus and Mercedes in SC if they decide to build plants here. President Andrew is quoted as saying, “I live by my own saying which is ‘No one has been more richly blessed than me. Live in a manner that is reciprocal.’”
