SUMTER, SC – April 19, 2016 – WebsterRogers is a proud sponsor of Young Professionals of Sumter (YPS), and has a strong relationship that can be traced back to Day One for the organization. Back in 2008, Jennifer Miller, a Senior Manager at WebsterRogers, found herself looking for a local organization for young professionals to come together and give back to the Sumter community. After doing her homework, like all good accountants do, Jennifer started looking outside her community in surrounding areas for ideas – thus Young Professionals of Sumter was born! “It was definitely a team effort. A group of friends and acquaintances agreed to be on the initial board and we just started meeting every month,” shared Jennifer. Almost eight years later the organization has become a staple in the community with a mission to provide career-minded individuals in Sumter, South Carolina between the ages of 21 and 45 with opportunities to develop socially, professionally, and civically.

Today YPS has continued their involvement in the community and has teamed up with the Sumter Chamber of Commerce to reach a broader audience and expand their impact. Currently YPS holds a monthly networking social, an Annual Young Professional Chili Cook Off and Beer Tasting, an Annual School Supply Drive, and the Upcoming Recovery Road Race on April 23.

So what does Jennifer think about YPS eight years down the road? “Young people are the future of the Sumter Community. As the saying goes, you get what you give.  What you put into things is what you will get out them.  If you are not currently involved in the community, I challenge you to take that first step to get involved by joining the Young Professionals of Sumter!” For more information, check out the YPS website: http://www.ypsumter.org/
