Liberty Fellowship, a statewide leadership initiative founded by Anna Kate and Hayne Hipp, Wofford College, and the Aspen Institute, recently announced the 21 individuals who will serve as mentors for the organization’s class of 2018 fellows.
The Liberty Fellowship “seeks to inspire outstanding leadership in South Carolina, empowering the state’s leaders to realize their full potential” by fostering intellectual and personal development, encouraging critical thinking, and introducing diverse perspectives.
Over the course of 18 months, fellows attend five seminars, including the Aspen Institute Globalization seminar, which connects participants to others involved in similar programs.
Additionally, with the guidance of a mentor, each Liberty fellow chooses a personal leadership project that will benefit South Carolina.
Below are the six mentors who will work with Fellows residing in the Upstate:
- Craig Brown, president and owner of the Greenville Drive, CEO of Keelers Ridge Associates (mentoring Ansel Sanders)
- Elizabeth Davis, president of Furman University (mentoring Cheryl Grant)
- Anna Kate Hipp, Liberty Fellowship co-founder, philanthropist, and community volunteer (mentoring KaceyEichelberger)
- Robbin Phillips, president of Brains on Fire (mentoring Kippie Brown)
- Brenda Thames, executive vice president and provost for the health sciences center at Greenville Health System (mentoring Cara Cornelius)
- Dwayne Wilson, board member for Ingredion Incorporated and AK Steel Holding Corporation (mentoring Rob Howell)
“Great mentors build up other leaders, encouraging their success and helping shape their path from success to significance,” said co-founder Hayne Hipp in a statement. “We’re grateful to these mentors for this commitment, which ultimately impacts South Carolina through heightened leadership.”
