My background in education and law enforcement uniquely positions SC kids to be SAFE while they LEARN (instead of being indoctrinated, fearful and at risk). Here in South Carolina, we want our kids to learn the basics of a solid education, then grow into America-loving critical thinkers. My policies will protect those values.
Lynda’s background in law enforcement and education are the foundations that have strengthened and balanced the way she approaches her Board service. She was the Deputy Psychologist and Investigator for the Richland County Sheriff’s Dept. and taught Ethics, Dispatching, Problem Solving, Gangs, Felony Car Stops, and more at the SC Criminal Justice Academy. She also taught Physical Education, Resource, and ESL at the Saudi Arabian International School in Riyadh, then returned to Greenville, where she was a Guidance Counselor/Physical Education teacher and coach at JL Mann High. She has also served as Dept. Head of Criminal Justice, Director of Enrollment, Director of College in High School, and Executive Director of the Carolinas Institute for Community Policing at Greenville Technical College.
