Rock Hill Black Economic Leadership League Receives $10,000 Grant from State Farm
Thursday, June 2, Rock Hill State Farm Agent Dawn Johnson was joined by Mayor Pro Tem Derrick Lindsay and other community leaders as she presented the Black Economic Leadership League of Rock Hill (B.E.L.L.) with a $10,000 grant from State Farm®. B.E.L.L. was selected by Johnson to receive this grant as one of 100 agents nationwide who were nominated and selected for outstanding community engagement.
In March 2018, a group of black business owners and engaged community leaders, including Johnson, came together to form what would become the Black Economic Leadership League of Rock Hill (B.E.L.L.) B.E.L.L.’s vision is to grow diverse and equitable practices to promote the value of inclusive, innovative, progressive policies in economic growth and development by fostering entrepreneurship, creating jobs, equitable distribution of city resources and leadership opportunities to help the city of Rock Hill.
“The future direction of B.E.L.L. is to evolve into the B.E.L.L. Incubator for Economic and Social Impact. We envision this as a community-oriented productivity and resource center where community members gather to problem solve. This donation will go a long way toward positioning us for our next level of growth. We are so excited, and eternally grateful to be the recipient of this $10,000 donation, says Elaine Wilmore of B.E.L.L.”
