A South Carolina native and resident of Kershaw, Tyson Blanton brings extensive experience in public relations within the electric utility industry. As the District Manager for Duke Energy, she serves as a crucial link between the corporation and local communities in York, Lancaster, Chester, Cherokee, Union, and Fairfield counties.

“I’m so excited and proud to join York Technical College’s board of commissioners. The college is such an asset to our community and an incredible partner in addressing the workforce needs of local industries,” said Tyson Blanton. “It is an honor to have this opportunity to play a small role in the big impact York Tech has on education in South Carolina.”

In addition to her professional role, Tyson is actively engaged in community service, currently serving as Chairwoman of the Lancaster County Partners for Youth Board and holding positions on various community boards. Tyson graduated from the University of South Carolina with a Bachelor's Degree in Mass Communications and a Master's Degree in Business Administration from USC Darla Moore School of Business."

This local organic wine startup is in growth mode

"Female and Latinx founder Mary Anna Ossa was formerly a stay-at-home mom for 12 years, and at the time, she didn’t have any interest working in the wine industry.

In January 2020, that all changed after she enjoyed a glass of organic wine at a bar in Barcelona, Spain, with a friend. Ossa, for a long time, couldn’t drink more than a glass or two without experiencing a lingering headache. But after discovering organic wine during her visit to Spain, she no longer suffered from negative reactions. She was inspired to create her own brand — Partners and Grapes. The Fort Mill-based company distributes a variety of wine blends made with organic grapes and without harsh herbicides, pesticides and sulfites that can cause headaches.

In December, the company expanded to several retailers across the Carolinas — like Earth Fare in Concord and Southern Spirits in Indian Land — and beyond. In addition, Partners and Grapes just started offering online ordering and shipping."
