Meet the Hartsville Young Professionals-Kelly



My name is Kelly Benton.

My hometown is Ware Shoals, S.C.

At work I am an Insurance Agent for Macon Hunter State Farm Agency, where I am dedicated to helping clients obtain the protection they need.

Coker College brought me to Hartsville.

I have lived in Hartsville for 8 years.

You may not know that I am a major Carolina Panthers and South Carolina Gamecocks football fan, I love listening to the oldies, and I volunteer as the Lead Ambassador with the Hartsville Chamber of Commerce.

Three things you can always find in my refrigerator are milk, eggs, and cheese. 

My favorite Hartsville spots are Raised Down South and the Hartsville Movie Theater.

My favorite Hartsville food is pizza at New York by the Slice. 

On a weekend in Hartsville you can find me spending time with my family; either at home, at a football game, or at a Coker College athletic event/game.

On a weeknight in Hartsville you can find me sometimes at the YMCA but mostly at home.

I HYP because of the opportunity to network with other young professionals and to be more involved with the Hartsville community.

I love Hartsville because it reminds me of my home town. I love a small town!

A Hartsville hidden gem that many don't know about is Habitat of Humanity. I find a lot of my Do-It-Yourself projects there!
