Each year, the Clemson Young Alumni Council names 10 alumni to its “Roaring10,” recognizing outstanding young alumni for their influence in business, leadership, community, education and philanthropic endeavors. The honor is given to individuals who exemplify Clemson University’s core values of honesty, integrity and respect and who have graduated from Clemson within the last 10 years.

Bauer graduated from Clemson University in 2010 with a degree in parks, recreation and tourism management. She is the sales and marketing manager for Zen Greenville, an elegant event space and event planning company.

Bauer serves her community by volunteering for a variety of organizations, including Serenity Place, United Way Hands on Greenville Day, Habitat for Humanity and the Harvest Hope Food Bank. She is also a Pulse Young Professional member, serving as a board member of the Pulse Advisory Council. Bauer serves on the Greenville Clemson Club board of directors and was also its most recent Prowl and Growl chair.
