         PENDLETON --- Asking people for money can be the hardest part of the fundraising equation, but for Lieutenant Stacy Craven of the S.C. Highway Patrol, it was easy to ask friends, family and co-workers to support a campaign to name the Criminal Justice program at Tri-County Technical College in honor of longtime friend and mentor, Henry C. Harrison.  "I jumped at the chance to help the Chief," said Lt. Craven, who has known the former highway patrolman and Greenville businessman since he was 14 years old.  "I was very comfortable asking folks to support this endowment, and there was no hesitation from people to give and to honor a gentleman's career of commitment to high standards," he said. 

         "He has helped so many.  He is a caring and giving person who is fair, honest, impartial, and always professional -- the best we can offer in law enforcement.  He represents a true Southern gentleman," said Lt. Craven.

         Over the past two years, Lt. Craven and the Foundation staff raised $100,000 in pledges to name the Henry C. Harrison Criminal Justice program.  "They all did it for the big chief.  Everybody loves him," said Lt. Craven, of Harrison, a member of the College's Foundation Board, a S.C. Highway Patrolman for 20 years and Chairman and CEO of American Services since starting it in 1975.  "An educational program for law enforcement is his passion," said Lt. Craven.  "He believes in educating officers and helping his employees in college with scholarships and with scheduling.  He is willing to do anything he can for people. In my opinion he represents a life that should inspire us all, to search and find our true mission here and to be better to each other."
