Some of his accomplishments include Chapin High School’s being selected as the 2015 Palmetto’s Finest High School, national recognition by US News and World Report and the Washington Post, and his being named one of the “Most Influential People” in Chapin by The State newspaper.

Ross is very active in the Chapin Sunrise Rotary Club, having been a past president of the organization. He is also a member of the SC High School League’s Executive Committee and a member of the Palmetto’s Finest Committee for SCASA.

The Mayor’s Prayer Breakfast will also include participation by several members of the Chapin faith community, the Chapin High School Choir and the JROTC Color Guard.  Generations of Chapin will once again serve as the breakfast sponsor for the event, which serves as the kick-off for the annual observance of Community of Character Service Day. Community groups, schools, churches and individuals rally to support a wide array for projects that benefit the greater Chapin community.
