Spencer ’95 and Rachel ’96 Neal P’24

Imagine sitting in class at Clemson and spotting your future spouse.  That’s exactly what happened for Spencer ’95 and Rachel ’96 Neal P’24!  Clemson holds a very special place in their lives, and now as parents of a current Clemson student, they are enjoying the Clemson experience in a whole new way.

Spencer and Rachel have been members of the Baltimore/DC Clemson Club for 25 years – as long as they’ve been married, in fact – and we are proud to recognize their leadership as Corporate Partners and members of our Clemson Club Board of Directors. 

Rachel is an Operations Support Manager for a defense contractor, and as owner of Leading Edge Wealth Advisors in Annapolis, Spencer is dedicated to supporting the financial needs of individuals, families and corporate 401k retirement plans. He proudly serves as the Foundation Chairman for Baltimore Washington Medical Center, and he is also a member of the Baltimore Washington Medical Center Board of Directors.  Together they have committed their time, talents and treasures to our Baltimore/DC Clemson Club as Corporate Partners, and their goals include growing the impact of our Club in the metro region and increasing family participation.

The Neal family enjoys life outdoors, especially golfing, hiking, running, and cycling.  They also love to travel, and they have the perfect reason to head to Tigertown any time to visit their daughter, Lauren ’24!  When asked about inspiring life lessons, Spencer had not one but two thoughtful pieces of advice: “Listen more than you speak, and spend time getting to know people.”  

Rachel and Spencer, thank you for your dedication to our Clemson Club!
