Dear SCACE Members,
We are excited to announce that registration for our Spring 2024 Employer Drive-In is now open. Join us as we visit the Savannah River National Laboratory in Upstate, SC on Friday, March 15, 2024.
Savannah River National Laboratory (SRNL) is an applied research and development laboratory for the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Environmental Management at the Savannah River Site in South Carolina. Since starting operations in the 1950s during the Cold War, SRNL has built its reputation in three primary mission areas – environmental and legacy management, national security, and weapons production technology – earning the designation of a national laboratory in 2004. It is the only DOE Environmental Management sponsored lab. Tour the main laboratory and meet the University Engagement Group.

The Greenville Drive, the High-A South Atlantic League affiliate of the Boston Red Sox, are entering their 19th year at award-winning Fluor Field in downtown Greenville as the reigning SAL Champions – their second title in team history. Since 2006, more than 400,000 fans a year have been welcomed to Fluor Field for both Drive games and additional community events. In 2017, the Drive was honored with the prestigious John H. Johnson President’s Award, presented by Minor League Baseball and given to “the total baseball franchise,” based on contributions to baseball in the community, promotion of the baseball industry, financial stability and contributions to league stability. The Drive also received the prestigious 2020 Freitas Award, which recognizes the nation’s top Single-A MiLB franchise. One hundred and nine Drive alumni have gone on to play at the major-league level.
Join SCACE on Wednesday, May 15, 2024 from 1 to 2 pm for a behind-the-scenes tour of Fluor Field led by Team President, Jeff Brown. Participants will also be offered complimentary tickets (First 30!) to return to Fluor Field for the Drive game on May 16th (7pm first pitch).
