Director's Message




Please allow me to introduce myself. I am L.R. Dinkins, originally from Sumter, S.C. I am happily married to Elizabeth, and we have three beautiful children, Camaerin, Kendell, and Kennedy.  I am a graduate of South Carolina State University with a Bachelor of Science in History; I earned my Masters in Education from Cambridge College and my Doctorate in Educational Leadership from Argosy University.


I am entering my 20th year in education and my 15th year in Jasper County School District. I have served seven years as a teacher on the high school level and now beginning my eighth year as an administrator and Director of the Jasper County Alternative Program.


I look forward, with great anticipation and excitement, to begin this year with the end in mind.


No organization will ever live up to its potential until those who are a part of the organization believe in what they are doing.


I look forward to building healthy relationships with each of you as we do what is best for children together.




L.R. Dinkins
