No matter where you live in the U.S., there’s a common challenge that communities are facing today: JOBS. It’s a challenge that is especially critical here in Myrtle Beach and Horry County, where the unemployment rate is about 6.9%.
That includes an existing workforce, and the thousands of young men and women that graduate each year from our nationally recognized public school system, Coastal Carolina University, and Horry Georgetown Technical College. We invest in these young men and women and, unfortunately, too often see them leave our community for places of “better opportunity.”
As the business leaders and representatives of our community, it is crucial for us to create jobs and opportunities right here on the Grand Strand. We have a responsibility to drive progress and retain the talents of our current generation and those to come.
Josh Kay, Myrtle Beach Regional Economic Development Corporation’s (MBREDC) President & CEO, has a favorite quote from Mike Krzyewski, Duke’s Men’s Basketball Coach,“There are five fundamental qualities that make every team great: communication, trust, collective responsibility, caring and pride. I like to think of each as a separate finger on the fist. Any one individually is important., but all of them together are unbeatable.”
Economic development is a team sport and we need the support from everyone in the community to be successful and help Horry County thrive.
