Why SYP: Upon moving back to Spartanburg in 2015, he realized that an astounding amount of growth within the town had occurred since leaving for college. SYP provides a means to make new connections and develop lasting friendships while allowing the opportunity to be directly involved in the growth taking place within the community.
Why Spartanburg: Spartanburg is a unique community in the sense that young professionals have the ability to play a major role in the direction the town is headed. The ability to be a part of something bigger than himself while also allowing him to maintain the comforting feel of home, were the main attractions that drove John’s decision to move back home from North Florida. In the years since moving back, he does not have a single regret about returning home to work and one day raise a family in this wonderful town!
