About Courtney Graham

Shortly after graduating from Clemson University in 1991 with a degree in Marketing, Courtney McGinnis Graham accepted a sales position with CableVantage, a cable television advertising entity. This opportunity resulted in a twelve year sales and management career with the company. During her tenure with CableVantage, Courtney became the Regional Director, responsible for its operations in Columbia, Aiken, Newberry, Camden, and Greenwood.

In 2004, Courtney fulfilled her dream of becoming a stay-at-home mom. She, her husband, and her son returned to the Pee Dee in 2006. After leading Bible studies, and volunteering with local non-profits, Courtney took a leading role in the Love Notes Benefit for the Slaughenhoupt family in May 2009. Encouraged by the outpouring of community support for the benefit, she envisioned a local television program (Value TV) that would be an outlet for individuals and businesses to share their inspirations and success stories.

In 2014, Courtney was inspired to help the increasing number of needy children in Florence School District One. Through her vision, Shelter and Nutrition for All Children (SNAC) was founded to help homeless and needy families with school age children in the district. SNAC was unlike other charity organizations in that it was concerned with meeting the immediate need by providing food gift cards, housing or financial assistance, right away.

On June 25th, 2015, Courtney Graham died unexpectedly in her home. She leaves her husband, Bob and son, Cade.
