Why SYP: Initially looking for a way to connect with young people in the Spartanburg community after moving from South Florida, Claudia quickly discovered the passion that this group of individuals had for making a direct impact on the growth and development of Spartanburg. When asked to serve on the Board, Claudia was excited to serve and continues to enjoy meeting new professionals moving to the area.
Why Spartanburg: For Claudia, Spartanburg still has the feel of a close-knit community, while boasting the growth and amenities of a much bigger town. Because of that, there is a real opportunity for young professionals to take on leadership roles and make a big difference in the growth trajectory of the community. Spartanburg has changed drastically in the past 5+ years, particularly in the downtown area, and it’s an exciting time for young professionals to actively engage in change opportunities.
