Meet the Hartsville Young Professionals-Kendrick


My name is Kendrick Reed.

My hometown is Marion, SC.

At work I am the Coordinator of Residence Life & the First-Year Experience at Coker.....That's pretty long, in short, I ensure that new students at Coker have a smooth and successful transition to college, and are provided/connected with resources that our campus provides. 

Coker College brought me to Hartsville.

I have lived in Hartsville for 6 years.

You may not know that I was born and raised in Marion, SC, a nearby small town, I served as Coker's SGA President my senior year, and I am a huge Gamecock fan! 

Three things you can always find in my refrigerator are string cheese (Random, I know), diet coke, take out Boxes-I'm not the best cook out there.

My favorite Hartsville spot is Prestwood Lake & Kalmia Gardens.

My favorite Hartsville food is Whole Hot at Ruth's Drive In.

On a weekend in Hartsville you can find me having dinner with friends at one of the many places to eat in town, or spending an evening in Mantissa row enjoying various events sponsored by businesses in the area.

On a weeknight in Hartsville you can find me at a Coker sporting or campus event.

I HYP because it provides opportunities to network and connect with other young professionals in our area. 

A Hartsville hidden gem that many don't know about is the brunch at LighterSide! #Quality
