ROCK HILLYork Technical College President Dr. Greg Rutherford has been named the new chairman of the Rock Hill Economic Development Corporation.

Rutherford, who previously served as vice chairman, takes over for Andy Shene at an exciting time of development for the city. Within the next two years, several ambitious projects are set to launch in Rock Hill, including the 139 Main apartment complex, the Old Town East office complex, and the new Knowledge Park.
