Dr. Sheila Quinn announced the appointment of Rinice Sauls as the Chief Human Resources and Strategic Planning Officer for the Clover School District (CSD).

The Board of Trustees approved the appointment at Monday night's business meeting. Sauls will fill the position currently held by Dr. Tony Hemingway.  Hemingway is in the transition process after being named the Superintendent of Fairfield County Schools earlier this year.

Before joining FMSD in 2018, she worked for the South Carolina Department of Education.  Her roles for the state department included Regional Support Transformation Coach and Education Associate.

Superintendent Dr. Sheila Quinn said, "I have had the privilege of working with Rinice during her tenure at the Department of Education where she did school transformation and educator effectiveness work. She is a professional, compassionate, and results-driven leader.  We look forward to her bringing her talents to the Clover School District. "

Sauls holds a Bachelor's degree in Communication Disorders from Winthrop University, a Master’s degree in Elementary Education and an Educational Specialist Degree from South Carolina State University.  Additionally, she is currently on track to receive her Doctorate in Educational Leadership and Policies from the University of South Carolina in 2024.
