2017 Festival Chair & Board

Amelia Anderson is this year’s Come-See-Me Festival Chair. A Rock Hill native, Amelia, her husband Joe Sprouse, and son Anderson continue to call the city home.

Upon graduation from Winthrop University, Amelia joined Comporium in 2005, where she currently serves as Major Accounts Coordinator.

She became a Come-See-Me Festival Team Leader in 2012. Since then, she has led the Mayor’s Frog Jump and Moonlight Jazz & Blues. She served as festival Vice-Chair in both 2015 and 2016.

A graduate of Rock Hill High School and Winthrop University, Amelia displays a love for this community by supporting many local organizations, including Camp Canaan, Comporium Pioneers, and St. John’s United Methodist Church.
