Travis Wharton told us,"I like to be there to teach, to educate and to be beneficial to my community."  This former high school principle gets to do exactly this in his role with the Urban League of the Upstate.  He is their Education Coordinator for Spartanburg.  What excites him about the Urban League is how they are able to find creative ways to use the funds they raise to bring education to the community, to bring knowledge of economic mobility, to provide housing and resources for community members.
