Gov. Nikki Haley received the Roger Milliken Defender of Manufacturing Award at the S.C. Manufacturers Alliance awards dinner in Spartanburg on Thursday night.

"It's a unique time when we're seeing a resurgence in manufacturing," Alliance Chairman Mikee Johnson, a high school classmate of Haley's, told The (Spatanburg) Herald-Journal. "As I walked around and talked to people, everyone's busy."

Hale praised industry leaders. "All the success we've had in South Carolina is because of Team South Carolina. Don't ever forget that," she said in the news report. "When (new business) comes in, everyone in this room wraps their arms around them. You have no idea how that helps me sell this state."
