“In December, we were notified by Molly Spearman, S.C. Secretary of Education, that a seat was coming open on the Board effective Jan. 31,” Rep. MaryGail Douglas said last week. “The seat rotates between Fairfield, Lancaster and Chester School Districts, and it was Fairfield’s turn to fill it. Senator Fanning and I felt, of course, that Dr. Green is an excellent choice for this appointment.”

“We were looking for someone to be a voice for teachers in our district and in our state,” Douglas said. “They don’t really have a strong voice on the state level.”

“It is an honor to be provided an opportunity to serve on the State Board of Education,” Green said.  “I look forward to contributing to the crafting of education policy in South Carolina.”

The State School Board seat is for a four-year term.
