EDITOR’S NOTE: Rose Buyck Newton, director of marketing for the Bank of Clarendon, is one of nearly 100 local businesswomen who will be recognized Sept. 23 during Main Street Manning’s annual meeting. The Manning Times will be featuring a few of these women each week throughout September in The Manning Times, and posting stories daily on manninglive.com.
Rose Buyck Newton said she owes much of her work ethic to her mother, Francis, and her mom’s two first cousins, Margaret Jackson and Anne Prothro.
“These three were born and raised here in Manning, and it was in their relationships with each other that I learned what it meant to be a Lady from Manning,” Newton said. “I learned from these three what it means to be loyal, compassionate, trustworthy, firm, funny, dedicated to perfection in all endeavors, godly, persistent and patient. Although they didn’t always see eye-to-eye, they never stopped loving each other and were always striving to make a different for Manning.”
Newton said she is blessed to work for an organization – the Bank of Clarendon – that embodies many of those same ideals and values.
“For more than 80 years, the Bank of Clarendon has been committed to improving the lives of the citizens of Clarendon County,” she said. “I work with an amazing group of people who always give 100 percent in striving to make our community a better place.”
