About Pendleton Pride In Motion

What is Pendleton Pride In Motion?

PPIM in Pendleton South Carolina

PPIM 501c3 was formed in the Spring of 2004 as a community outreach organization. We meet monthly and have a committee structure of Communication and Advocacy; Beautification; Community Progress and Smart Growth; and Health, Education and Social Services.

PPIM's Board and members are active in the community promoting awareness and involvement in a multitude of areas.In 2005, Pendleton Pride In Motion sponsored the building of Barrett's Place Playground which was built by Community Volunteers with money raised by Community Volunteers with purchased, donated or borrowed equipment and materials. It was an amazing Community Wide Effort that everyone was proud to be a part of. PPIM is proud that it was the founding sponsorship of Friends of the Park and although PPIM is no longer the sponsoring organization, we are extremely interested in it's purpose and progress. PPIM continues to sponsor the Student of the Month Program at Pendleton High School which culminates in a $1,000 scholarship.PPIM's latest effort is to create a series of Health and Heritage Walking Trails with designated way-finding markers. This effort was in coordination with Clemson University Creative Inquiry Program and introduced at Spring Jubilee 2009.

The organization takes pride in being at the forefront of issues impacting the Health of Pendleton. The term Health is used not to suggest an absence of disease, but improvement in the overall quality of life.According to our by-laws, the business of Pendleton Pride In Motion will be managed by an executive committee consisting of at least seven members. The executive committee will be made up of a representative of each standing committee and at least three persons elected at large.

November 30, 2012

Dear Ms. Wallace,

Pendleton Pride In Motion (PPIM) 501c3 would like to express our support for the efforts of the Pendleton Historic Foundation in partnership with the Jane Edna Harris Creative Inquiry Project in Clemson University's English Dept, and Dead Horse Production to produce and distribute a high-quality full-length documentary film based on the exceptional life of Jane Edna Hunter (1882-1971).PPIM is an active organization in Pendleton that promotes a "healthy" community through forging alliances and strengthening neighborhoods. The story of Ms. Hunter is one to be shared. She was the child of former slaves, born in a tenant house on Woodburn farm in the community of Pendleton, SC. She became a nationally prominent African-American reformer and activist who founded the Phillis Wheatley Association in Cleveland, OH to provide job and life training for young Southern African-American women who went North during the "great migration" of the early 20th century. The purpose of the film is to raise the awareness of the remarkable life story of Jane Edna Hunter in her hometown and state of SC where she is virtually unknown and to elevate her legacy on a national level to inspire viewers of all ages and backgrounds that anything can be accomplished even during the worst of circumstances.This film will be debuted in Pendleton when complete and then offered to numerous educational institutions and educational TV channels for state and national distribution. PPIM is excited to support this effort.

Sincerely,A. Scott Ward, Chairperson

      I used to smile when driving around Australia and I'd see signs saying Tidy Town. It was a special award that towns vied for. Maybe America should have Tidy Town awards too.
