I've lived in Greenville my whole life and it is a wonderful town to grow up in. I believe it has very dedicated educators, friendly neighborhoods, and provides a feeling of both pride and safeness. I would love to see its dining establishments continue to grow and diversify.

Schooling is great. Neighborhoods are great. Clean, safe, and affordable. Close to highways and shopping. Several restaurants around.
I have lived in Greenville my entire life and it has been a great experience. My parents grew up in Urban areas and they recall it being very very different.
I am proud to live there and hope to live there with my family as well.
