South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster became the first governor to visit the state’s oldest charter school on Tuesday, according to a news release from the Meyer Center.

McMaster toured the Meyer Center for Special Children to see the education and therapy services the center provides to students with disabilities.

The Meyer Center said McMaster also met and interacted with students in order to learn more about the importance of charter schools and special education institutions.

The governor also paid a visit to the Younts Center for Performing Arts where he attended a joint chamber meeting between Fountain Inn, Mauldin, and Simpsonville.

McMaster talked about his new executive order for business regulations and shared his thoughts on how to make the Upstate more business friendly. He also talked about regulations he believes are hurting businesses, and took questions from local business owners.

To round out the day Governor McMaster also spoke at the annual Greenville County Republican Barbecue. The barbecue took place at the Cannon Center in Greer.

While visiting Greenville County, McMaster also took the opportunity to talk about President Trump's upcoming visit to the Upstate.

“I’m delighted to have him here. I believe it was South Carolina that launched him for the  presidency with our Republican primary. Which every year expected one, we had it started 1980 with President Regan has produced the Republican nominee and also winner of the election," McMaster said. "So, he is well aware and his whole family of the significant role the people of South Carolina played in his election and that’s one reason he’s going to be here.”
