“I found and joined Young Professionals a little over a year ago via Facebook, and I can’t say enough about how welcoming the group has been,” said Dillon Brewer, Alderman for the Town of Rockwell and president of Cheer City Riot. “Socially and professionally, I’ve benefited from all the relationships and friendships I’ve formed. My favorite part of the group is the unique experiences and events that are offered. For me particularly the Dragon Boat Festival and the Live After 5: Series are my favorites, they are awesome opportunities to network and get to know other Young Professionals in Rowan County.”

“Being a member of Rowan County Young Professionals is invaluable to me,” said Sherri Hill, Area Consultant with North Carolina Department of public Safety. “Not only has it connected me to resources in the business community, as well as other young professionals that I am able to network with often, I have also gained friends who support me both professionally and personally. The Rowan County Young Professionals have truly become part of my community.”
