GREENVILLE, SC (May 23, 2017) – Wyche, P.A. sponsored a panel discussion on Thursday, May 18th in Greenville, S.C. to explore the nature of resilience, starting with the otherworldly courage shown in the aftermath of the Mother Emanuel shooting in Charleston, S.C. Moderator and Wyche attorney Meliah Bowers Jefferson engaged with panelists Jennifer Pinckney – survivor of the Mother Emanuel tragedy and widow of The Honorable Clementa C. Pinckney; Mayor Joe Riley – nationally acclaimed Mayor of Charleston, S.C. from 1975-2016; Senator Gerald Malloy – Senator for S.C. District 29; and Wyche attorney Matthew Richardson – a state leader on access to justice – in discussion of the fortitude required to make our communities and businesses stronger.
“Wyche has a legacy of leadership on ideas and efforts to transform communities,” said Maurie Lawrence, Chair of Wyche’s Executive Committee. “This June will mark two years since the horrific attack at Mother Emanuel. While there is often impetus for change immediately after tragedy strikes, it can be difficult to keep up the momentum for progress once time passes. Wyche’s Resilience Event is the firm’s contribution to keeping the conversation going, and to better understanding how to overcome adversity in our businesses, our communities, and our lives.”
