Greetings! I am happy to face the many challenges, in this my second year at the Sumter High. I am finding that each day is an adventure with many unexpected rewards along the way.
I am a lifelong resident of Sumter and graduated from Sumter High School. I have a bachelors degree in History, and a Masters in teaching Social Studies, both earned at the University of South Carolina. I am married to Melanie Mendenhall (USC ’84) and have two grown children, Amanda (Lander ’12) and Steven (Colgate ’09). We are all products of the Sumter School District and believe in the power of the public schools.
