A ribbon cutting was held on Thursday, June 30th in the James Allen Plaza celebrating the Asiya Jordan Foundation’s joining of the Greater Florence Chamber of Commerce.
Cutting the ribbon was Shalanda Waiters, Director of the foundation, which was established in memory of her daughter, Asiya Jordan.
Sixteen-year-old Asiya Jordan died in a car crash on McIver Road in October 2019. Her mother said she was on her way to Florence-Darlington Tech.
She was a junior at Wilson and a varsity cheerleader.
Waiters said her daughter was very community-service oriented and wanted to make a difference in the world.
The foundation gives scholarships to deserving students in memory of Jordan.
