2016 James E. Clyburn Political Fellows

Columbia, SC— Today the South Carolina Democratic Party announced the recipients of the 2016 James E. Clyburn Political Fellowship.   

The goal of the Clyburn Fellowship is to develop the next generation of leadership and talent in the South Carolina Democratic Party.  Our inaugural class of forty fellows includes veterans, teachers, lawyers, elected officials, and members of the health care and business communities. In addition to their diverse backgrounds, sixteen fellows are women and one fellow is Hispanic. 

“I’m excited about the opportunity to engage young professionals in the political process. The Democratic Party in South Carolina is growing as younger, more diverse voters join the electorate. Over the next year, fellows will participate in five three-day seminars/ training sessions. The launch of this program is the first of many steps the SC Democratic Party will take to develop a bench of talented leaders that can run for office, manage successful campaigns, and become the next generation of county party leadership,” said South Carolina Democratic Party Chair Jaime Harrison.
