April 4, 2023


Two community leaders have been elected to serve on Tri-County Technical College’s (TCTC) Foundation Board of Directors.

Joining the Board’s current members are Joel Davis, representing Oconee County, and Susan Borcherts, representing Anderson County.

Davis is president of J. Davis Construction, New Terrain Grading, and JDI Industrial Services with locations in Westminster and Anderson.

Borcherts is the facility personnel manager at Michelin’s Earthmover Tire Plant in Anderson.

Members of the Foundation Board raise money to supplement appropriations thereby helping the College to meet the educational needs of the citizens of the tri-county area.

Davis Construction, in its 25th year, was founded in 1997 by Davis when he was 17 years old. A native of Westminster, he attended TCTC. Davis is past chairman and current trustee of Blue Ridge Electric Cooperative and serves on the board of Community First Bank. He also is a board member of New Horizon Electric Cooperative and the Oconee and Anderson County Economic Alliance. He and his wife, Michelle have three children.

Borcherts has been with Michelin for 16 years. Prior to Michelin, she was Director of Communication for the Archdiocese of Indianapolis for five years and a newspaper reporter with The Indianapolis Star for 11 years. She graduated from Indiana University in 1989 with a bachelor of science degree in journalism and political science. She and her husband, Kirt, live in Easley and have two children.

“We’re excited to add Joel and Susan to our board of distinguished community and business leaders,” said Grayson Kelly, vice president of institutional advancement and business relations at TCTC.  “I look forward to working with them to advance the vision of Tri-County by transforming lives through quality education, one student at a time.”
