Featuring Molly Spearman

Her entire career has prepared her for the role of leading the state's public education system. Growing up on a dairy farm in the rolling hills of Saluda County and graduating from the rural Hollywood High School, she learned the importance of hard work and an appreciation of the skill set needed for a successful career.
Her priorities as Superintendent of Education are ensuring school safety and a system of instruction that will prepare every graduate for successful life after high school. The foundation for that instruction is effective classroom teachers and principals who facilitate personalized learning for every student, every day.
