Greenville's success is not an accident. Much of this success is built on the historic guidance and vision of our past leaders. To continue to excel as a community, we must learn from, and be shaped by our past, by the stories of our history.

Come join us for the July TEDxGreenvilleSalon where we will talk about some parts of our history you may not have heard, feature two speakers, a TED talk, and a short discussion afterwards.
