Meet our Team!
Mr. Rod Ruth, Principal
Welcome to Blue Eagle Nation! I could not be more proud to be the Principal of Clover's flagship school. I received my Bachelor's degree from Francis Marion University, my Master's degree from the University of South Carolina and my Ed.S. from Winthrop University. During my time in education, I have served as a teacher, coach and administrator at the intermediate, middle and high school levels. My wife, Whitney, works for the Olde English Consortium. My son, Christian, is a proud Clover High School Blue Eagle. My daughter, Anniston, can be found navigating the halls of Crowders Creek Elementary. We love Clover and consider it an honor to live and work in such a wonderful community. Go Blue Eagle Nation!
Mrs. Carrie Bolin, Director of Career and Technical Education
Welcome to Clover High School! I was born and raised in York County and have had the pleasure of working in the Clover School District for 10+ years. My career began as an Agricultural Educator after graduating with both my undergraduate and Master degrees from Clemson University. I earned my Master of Science in Educational Leadership from Arkansas State University and have been an administrator for the past six years. My passion is Career and Technical Education, where I believe all students can be successful while being prepared for their future. Outside of school, I enjoy spending time on the farm with my husband Walt, and our children Tripp, Dakota, Madelyn and Logan.
Mrs. Vicki Wolford, Dean of Administrative Services
I love Clover High School! My undergraduate years were spent at Winthrop University (Mathematics major and Education minor) and my graduate years were at the University of South Carolina (MA in Education). My husband and I live in Clover in a log house we built 25 years ago. I enjoy Bluegrass music, the beach and sitting in my birthday swing, reading a good book. Welcome to Clover High School!Mr. Andrew Jones, Dean of Virtual ProgramsI am excited to serve the students, parents, staff and community of Clover High School. I am very proud to represent such an amazing school and consider it an honor to work alongside such dedicated professionals. Prior to my role as an administrator, I served as a CTE teacher and law enforcement officer. I find great joy in building relationships and making an impact in the lives of young people. Go Blue Eagle Nation!Mr. Steven Peeler, Dean of School OperationsI am super excited to serve as an assistant principal for the best school in the state of South Carolina. Before coming back to CHS, I served as the Dean of Students at Blue Eagle Academy. Before getting in to adminsitration I spent ten years as a United States History teacher. Along with serving as an assistant principal, I also coach Varsity Football as the Defensive Coordinator. In the small amount of free time I do have, I enjoy spending time with my beautiful wife (my rock) and three amazing kids. Go Blue Eagles!!!!Ms. Patrice Green, Dean of Student Support Services
I am excited to serve as an assistant principal for Clover High School! Prior to this position, I served as assistant principal at Harold C. Johnson Elementary School. I also spent eight years as an eighth grade South Carolina History teacher at York Middle School. I grew up in a small town called Givhans, South Carolina, where I attended Summerville High School. I received my Bachelor’s degree from Francis Marion University, and my Master’s degree from Winthrop University. In 2013, I decided to further my education at Arkansas State University, where I obtained my Educational Specialist degree. During my free time I enjoy traveling, shopping, and swimming with my three children (my pride and joy!).
Mrs. Martha Jean Starnes, Work Based Learning Coordinator
I love being a part of the Blue Eagle community! I have the awesome privilege and responsibility to mold our students in the most positive way possible. I am a graduate of Winthrop College, before it became Winthrop University, and I wear many hats at CHS. I am most passionate about helping our students transition into young adulthood and their professional lives. I have been married for 29 years to Darrell and we are the proud parents to daughter Kasie, a 25-year-old Converse College graduate, and to son Kelly who is a 2012 Citadel graduate. Our family is complete with cats Flash and Sparkles as well as our black lab Suzy. Both of our children live in Charleston so it is probably no surprise that it is my favorite place to visit!Mrs. Blaine Jolley, Testing/504 CoordinatorI am very excited to be a part of the team at Clover High School. Prior to coming to CHS I served in school counseling and registrar roles at Boiling Springs High School. I look forward to working with the students, parents and teachers of our great school!
