Board Fills Vacant Seat

District Six Trustees Fill Vacant Seat

Spartanburg County School District Six Board of Trustees voted unanimously tonight to appoint a long-time district resident and educator to serve alongside them on the board. Christie Johnson will fill the seat left vacant in May, after the passing of Coach Dale Evans. Johnson has been a part of District Six for thirty-five years, attending Woodland Heights Elementary, Dawkins Middle, and graduating from Dorman High School. In 1995 Johnson returned to District Six to begin her teaching career at Gable Middle and is now an adjunct professor at Wofford College. Johnson says, “I am especially honored now, as the mother of two sons attending District Six schools, to have been appointed to fill Coach Dale Evans’ board seat. He was a local icon and an inspiration to all of those who knew him. Although it is impossible to fill his shoes, I look forward to serving the students, teachers and parents of District Six.” Johnson has a degree in English/Secondary Education, a Masters in Elementary Education, and an Educational Specialist degree in Curriculum and Instruction. She is married to Chad Johnson and currently has two children in the District Six school system. Johnson says she is committed and dedicated to continuing the tradition of excellence in the District Six community. She will officially begin serving on the board on August 4th.
