SEB parking renamed Charlie Olliff Square

Written by  Thursday, 13 March 2014 11:04

  For more than 48 years Charlie Olliff had been a member of the board of directors of Sea Island Bank in Statesboro, which made him the bank’s longest serving board member.      


  Yesterday, in a surprise ceremony, he was honored by having the gated and fenced parking lot behind the bank, the location of the Mainstreet Farmers Market, renamed Charlie Olliff Square.  The action was by a proclamation of the city and the bank paying his honor.


  The proclamation was presented personally by Statesboro Mayor Jan Moore as an expression of the city’s thanks for his service to the bank and the community.  She said Olliff is the embodiment of a true southern gentleman.


  Chairman of the Sea Island Bank board, Bruce Yawn, praised Olliff as a man of Christian faith, a family man, good business man and loyal to his friends.


  Even after his retirement, Olliff, age 96, remains active in the community.  He was presented with the Deen Day Smith Lifetime Achievement Award in 2004.  In 2007 he was named the Rotary Citizen of the Year by the Statesboro and Downtown Statesboro Rotary Clubs.
