Delegation Appointments

This morning the Anderson County Legislative Delegation met to fill several appointments. Among them were Mrs. Rosemary Lindley (Tri-County Technical College Commission) and Mr. Rick Adkins (SC Board of Education). Rosemary and Rick are perfect “snapshots” of my Senate District of which I am proud to support.

Mrs. Lindley is a graduate of Oklahoma State University and earned a teaching certification from Clemson University. Following a career in retail, she worked as an English and social studies teacher at McCants Middle School and served as head of the school's English department. Currently she is owner of Queen Bees, a gift business located in Anderson. She is an adult Sunday School teacher at Central Presbyterian Church. Charles and Rosemary have two children, one of which I went to school with (James). They are very active in various civic organizations and Republican politics. Rosemary is very direct with her conservative opinions!

Mr. Adkins, a T.L. Hanna graduate and Clemson University graduate, is also committed to faith and family; he and Teresa have 3 children attending Concord Elementary School (the same school I attended). Rick is a successful, self-made, business man. The Adkins are active at Concord Baptist Church. He is a Republican activist, holding true to the conservative values that made the GOP great: less government, fiscal responsibility, family values, and school choice. Rick and I have been friends since childhood and I am honored to support him in this position on the State School Board. He will make us proud.
