“Living and working in Greenville has been incredible – there is so much to do here. One of the biggest draws is the affordability of the area and when I compare it to larger cities, it allows for such opportunity. I was able to buy a house just a couple years into my engineering career and in many places across the country, that’s not even possible. I know that for a fact because I lived in a bigger city before moving here and I still have the ability to travel, save, and invest.”

“As soon as I was introduced to welding during CTE at high school, I knew I wanted to become a welder. I earned a certification from Pitt Community College and started my career with Hyster-Yale, which offers great pay and benefits. I’m so grateful that at only 23 years old I’ve been able to buy a new car and I’m now planning to buy a house.”
