Teen’s love for Greer turns into ‘Greer Tidbit’
In any town, it’s the local chamber of commerce or city hall that typically knows everything about the area.
That is certainly true in Greer, but as 7NEWS anchor Ben Hoover learned, you could also ask a local teenager who knows every “tidbit” in town.
Jonathan Lovegrove’s love for his hometown started early. At the age of 13, his enthusiasm for Greer grabbed the attention of the mayor.
“Greer Mayor Rick Danner and some other great folks here put together a party for me in Greer City Hall and gave me a key to the city of Greer,” Lovegrove said.
That moment inspired Jonathan to take an idea and run with it. He started producing videos that highlighted his community and posted them to social media.
“Surprisingly, people started watching,” he said.
That first video has grown into something called “Greer Tidbits.”
Spread across several online platforms like Instagram and Facebook, “Greer Tidbits” caters to folks in the area who are looking for what’s happening in town, everything from downtown development to new restaurants and businesses to even when winter weather comes to town. Click here to learn more.
