Superintendent's Message

Dear Colleton County Community, 

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the start of the 2021-2022 school year and officially introduce myself to the greater community. It is hard to put into words the overwhelming joy I feel as I assume the role as the Superintendent of Colleton County Schools.  I consider it a privilege to have been appointed the new Superintendent of Schools.

Colleton County Schools offers boundless opportunities beyond the classroom setting as we provide enriching learning experiences for students at all levels. As an educator for over 30 years, I wholeheartedly value the programs and services in place, and I am committed to building upon past practices to ensure that current and future students have opportunities to explore their interests and find their true passions.

I witnessed a sense of community pride as I underwent the interview process and have experienced it firsthand over the past few days, as several staff members, parents, students and residents I met have been extremely welcoming and helpful. Please know that it is my intent to make every effort to foster and build on this culture to ensure the continued success of our students, schools and community.

While serving as your Superintendent of Schools, I plan to be accessible to all stakeholders and maintain an open communication policy. It is an exciting time for the Colleton County School District given the numerous innovations we have to offer our students and families. We look forward to welcoming all of our students back full-time, five-days a week, for in-person instruction on August 16, 2021.

To our staff and families, thank you for wrapping your arms around our students this year. I am so grateful and proud of what has been accomplished as a community. I had the pleasure of watching the Class of 2021 take the stage during the graduation ceremonies, with the family and school community who support them in the audience. It gave me great hope for our future as a school district and our community.

I encourage each of you to take time over these next few weeks to rest and reflect on all of the positive things that have come out of this unbelievable year. Maybe it was the resetting of priorities, or the focus on family time together, or just the fact that we all slowed down a bit. We have a lot to be grateful for. Take time this summer to get outside and reconnect with friends and family. And know that I, along with your Board of Trustees and the Colleton County Team will be here for you as we continue to move forward together and IGNITE a Passion for Learning.

Please continue to enjoy the summer and I look forward to seeing you soon.
