COLUMBIA — The S.C. Chamber of Commerce has selected U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham as the 2013 Public Servant of the Year award.
A news release from the Chamber announcing the award highlights Graham's military advocacy, his commitment to the Charleston port and and his defense of Boeing against a challenge from the National Labor Relations Board as reasons Graham was selected for the award.
Graham is one of three South Carolina receiving recognition from the Chamber at its annual business summit Thursday at Wild Dunes on the Isle of Palms.
The Chamber has named Anita Zucker, CEO of InterTech Group in North Charleston, 2013 Business Leader of the Year, and retired Brig. Gen. John Finan will receive the Sgt. William Jasper Freedom Award.
