HARTSVILLE, SC (May 19, 2014) — Travis Walters, a lifetime resident of Hartsville and long-time volunteer for SPC Credit Union, has been recognized by the Carolinas Credit Union Foundation as a part of their Partner in Philanthropy Awards. These awards highlight and recognize business partners that make their philanthropic impact felt as a regular part of their overall operations.
