My wife, Debbie and I have lived in Edgefield County since 1996.  She’s my best friend and the mother of our 5 mostly grown children.  Will is almost 23 and in his first year at USC’s law school.  Nic is 21 and graduating in May from USC with a degree in Real Estate.  He plans to come home and open a brokerage to complement our family’s construction business.  Cale is 20 and has just finished up the requirements for a diploma in industrial electricity from Midlands Tech.  He also plans to move home and augment our family business.  Andy will graduate from Strom Thurmond High School in June and plans to attend USC in the fall semester.  Meg is finishing her junior year at Strom Thurmond and will try to figure out how to be an only child in the fall.  God has blessed me beyond measure, and I am thankful for all His provision and for the opportunity to serve on the Board of Trustees.


Our Board has an opportunity to unite our school district and the citizenry of Edgefield County with a fresh vision of our responsibility and privilege in the education of our county’s children.  I am grateful to be serving at this time.
