GREENVILLE – The Jefferson Awards Foundation has selected Reid T. Sherard, a partner in Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough LLP’s Greenville office, for its 2018 class of “ChangeMakers.”
The Jefferson Awards Foundation was founded in 1972 by Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Sen. Robert Taft Jr., and nonprofit organizer Sam Beard. The Foundation’s goal in South Carolina is to cultivate the next generation of servant leaders, according to the organization, and selected its first class of 10 ChangeMakers under age 40 in Upstate South Carolina who have demonstrated a commitment to service and the potential to move the Upstate forward, according to the organization.

Sherard concentrates his time in divorce-related litigation, particularly involving significant assets, income, or other challenging financial issues as well as contested custody matters. He also maintains a litigation and appellate practice. He is a board member and past president of A Child’s Haven, which addresses the needs of children with developmental delays and their families, and is on the Board of Advisors for the YMCA Camp Greenville.
The elected ChangeMakers will work both individually and as a group to raise financial support for Students In Action, the Jefferson Awards Foundation’s leadership development program that seeks to provide high schoolers with necessary skills to be successful in college and the workforce. The 10 elected ChangeMakers will also participate in volunteer, community, and other networking activities each month with the goal of raising awareness and inspiring even more young leaders to do their part.
