The Stories of the Upstate™ #194: (Dr. Jermaine Whirl) "I read 1,000 books in first grade."

Our 194th story comes from Dr. Jermaine Whirl, VP of Economic Development and Corporate Training at Greenville Tech.

Dr. Jermaine Whirl's path to his current position as Vice President of Economic Development and Corporate Training at Greenville Technical College began early.  His parents instilled in him the spirit of hard work and service at a young age which displayed itself early when he got a management position at Kiawa Island Resort at the age of 17, managing a staff of 50 people. A teaching positon at East Georgia State College when he was just 23 and becoming the Dean of Adult Education for Savannah Technical College at the age of 26 demonstrated that the lessons he learned working in his father's businesses from the age of 10 had paid off.
