It was announced today that Chanelle Scheepers' November wedding to her coach, Roger Anderson, will be officiated by a Daniel Island clergyman. For the last five years, Scheepers--who is ranked number 42 in the world--has stayed with Mt. Pleasant residents Don and Anita Flowers during the Family Circle Cup. Don Flowers is the pastor of Providence Baptist Church on Daniel Island. Scheepers has become like "another daughter" to them, Flowers and his wife say.
