For more than 30 years, Len Bornemann has given his all to Greenwood.
On Friday night, Greenwood gave back.
Bornemann was inducted Friday as the 48th member of the Greenwood County Hall of Fame. The induction came during the Greenwood Chamber’s Annual Meeting and Centennial Celebration at Piedmont Technical College’s James Medford Family Event Center.


Bornemann was the former Greenwood Chamber executive director who has been a mainstay in the Greenwood community for more than three decades,..
“I was extremely surprised,” Bornemann said. “Overwhelmed is the word. I had no idea. I am so appreciative of this award. I was involved, when I was at the Chamber, with the recognition of Hall of Fame members and that sort of thing. To join a group of businesspeople like that is just an honor beyond all honors. I’m just overwhelmed.”
Bornemann came to the Greenwood area in 1982, as an employee of Monsanto. He worked at what was then the Greenwood Monsanto facility from 1982-97, holding a number of positions in that time period, including plant engineer.
