Championship Driving School would like to acknowledge one of our former driving instructors. John Corder. Those of you who knew him could never forget him. He was a great man and employee. His students loved him as well as his youth congregation. He loved the Lord with all his might and was an associate pastor here in Lugoff at Hillcrest Baptist Church when he worked for us. He was also an avid hunter. John left us to go mentor and open a church in Montana, where he passed away suddenly. He will be greatly missed and remembered fondly by those of us who had the pleasure to know him.
