Linda Hannon | May 2020
Chair, SCC Foundation Board of Directors
As district manager for one of the Upstate’s major employers, Linda Hannon gets a firsthand look at the workforce gaps in our community. That’s why she wanted to serve on the Spartanburg Community College Foundation Board of Directors.
“Spartanburg Community College plays a vital role in working closely with businesses and industry to determine workforce needs and works to help fill those gaps,” said Hannon, who oversees government and community relations for Spartanburg and Greenville counties as district manager for Duke Energy.
The SCC Foundation’s mission to secure innovative funding opportunities and other significant gifts to support the goals of the college is one that Hannon embraces.
“I hope my involvement supports and bolsters opportunities for students to complete their education and provide support in times of need,” she says.
A native of Greer, Hannon wanted to get more involved in the community after returning to the Upstate from the Charlotte NC area about six years ago. Now serving her fifth year on the SCC Foundation Board, Hannon presently is board chair.
Despite a considerable resume and an extensive list of community and civic involvement, Hannon cites her personal life rather than her professional one when asked about her greatest accomplishment.
“My greatest accomplishment is my family,” she says. “My husband and I have two sons that we are most proud of; Luke and Reese.”
