Bringing about unity and fellowship of men throughout Abbeville County

Who We Are

Welcome to Operation Impact

We are a Community Service Based Organization developing leaders, promoting educational endeavors, supporting youth activities, providing academic scholarships, assisting citizens, and bringing together men of like vision to “Make A Difference in Abbeville County.” 

The overall concept of Operation Impact started in 1990 with a vision from the Honorable Reverend Johnny Waller. His vision was to reach other men and motivate them to make a difference in Abbeville County. During the first two years, the organization went through a developing phase establishing the context and mission of the new organization. 

After two years of the organization, Operation Impact elected the Honorable Claude Thomas as chairman. His vision was to grow the organization and make a lasting impact within the community. Under his leadership in 1993, the First Annual Awards Banquet was held. The Banquet served as a way for Operation Impact to recognize others in the community contributing to Abbeville County.

College Scholarship Program

The Operation Impact Scholarship Program is an undergraduate scholarship program available to high-achieving high school seniors with financial need who seek to attend and graduate from the nation’s best four-year colleges and universities.
