FLORENCE, S.C. – Fifteen business people were honored Thursday night at Florence-Darlington Technical College’s inaugural Entrepreneurial Forum Gala.

The evening, at the Southeastern Institute of Manufacturing and Technology (SiMT), was part of a new effort by the school, which now offers courses in entrepreneurship. College President Ben Dillard has said one of the college’s goals is to give students the best opportunity possible to be successful. The school is hoping students will learn some lessons the honorees might have learned the hard way. The night conjured up warm feelings for honorees, who reflected on their own careers in different ways and offered advice to aspiring entrepreneurs.
