LCDSNB Renovating Evergreen Skills

We have a correction to make to our story about County Council’s action this week on behalf of the Laurens County Disabilities and Special Needs Board. We indicated that land at the agency’s administrative building was involved. That was not correct. County Council’s action was to turn over 13 acres of land at the Evergreen Skills Center, across Torrington Road from the Laurens County Airport. This was the first day facility of the agency, serving people with special needs. That center has included offering jobs for clients, through business partnerships. Opened decades ago as the first day center, the agency has in recent years opened additional day centers in Clinton and Gray Court. LCDSNB Executive Director Jason Tavener yesterday said the agency is now in the process of updating the Evergreen Skills Center. At yesterday’s Laurens Rotary meeting, he reported that upgrades to the Evergreen Skills facility include adding security features, to address concerns that were not prevalent when the structure was built.
