South Carolina's new lieutenant governor, J. Yancey McGill, visited the Town of Mount Pleasant's Stokes-Marshall Senior Services Center Wednesday on a state-wide senior services fact-finding mission. He met with council members Thomasena Stokes-Marshall, Elton Carrier and Mark Smith and toured the facility located at 840 Von Kolnitz Road.

McGill was recently selected to succeed the former lieutenant governor, Glenn McConnell, who vacated the position after being selected as the College of Charleston's new president. A 26-year Senate veteran, McGill is familiar with senior programs and services and believes that “everybody deserves a piece of the pie.”

“Lt. Governor McGill's visit to the senior center following his recent appointment speaks volumes for his care, concern and compassion towards the senior population,” said Stokes-Marshall. “We were delighted to share with him the variety of recreational, cultural, wellness, educational and social activities that the center provides.”

While touring the facility, McGill said that he was excited about the town's direction for its senior services and that he knew that the town's population was continually increasing. He was proud of the example the Town of Mount Pleasant was setting for the rest of the state.

“To have close to 3,000 citizens coming to one of the finest state-of-the-art senior centers anywhere in this state and to come in to see what has happened gives hope to the other areas of South Carolina,” he added.

“It was a pleasure meeting the new lieutenant governor and having the opportunity to show off our wonderful senior center,” said Recreation Director Ayoub. “I know that he left the center with a very positive impression about our trendsetting efforts to provide meaningful and fulfilling programs for our seniors.”
