“Through my time with Leadership South Carolina, I learned so much about South Carolina that changed my focus on how the communities across the state need to be more involved.”

Michael Allen, Leadership SC Class of 2011

“My Leadership South Carolina experience was one of the best things I have ever done. Especially for someone like me who is not originally from South Carolina, the topics and presenters dispelled the myths and exposed the 'real Palmetto State' helping me personally and professionally”

Chuck Claunch, Leadership SC Class of 2006

“It was simply a remarkable experience that generated long-lasting friendships and exceptional networking opportunities. The class project was great because everyone came together for a good cause.”

Pam Baker, Leadership SC Class of 2010

“Leadership South Carolina gave me exposure to many of the strengths and weaknesses of South Carolina. In doing so, it gave me a greater understanding of where involvement – and more importantly, leadership – is critical for us to continue to move forward as a state.”

Julie Ducworth, Leadership SC Class of 2010

“The quality of Leadership South Carolina is exceptional because as a member you see the big picture of issues within our state and ways to eliminate them. I also gathered invaluable insight from the guest speakers at our sessions.”

Jim Harris, Leadership SC Class of 1999
