CCTC names new director at F.E. DuBose center director

Posted

The interim director of Central Carolina Technical College's Clarendon County subcampus has been selected as its new director.

The Sumter-based college distributed a news release Thursday announcing Lisa Justice will serve as CCTC's new director of the F.E. DuBose Career Center effective immediately. Justice has served as interim director of the college's Manning subcampus since November. Since 2015, she has also served as the director of Clarendon County Adult Education, according to the release.

Located on U.S. 521 in Clarendon, the F.E. DuBose center serves as a multi-purpose facility in the county. F.E. DuBose offers CCTC courses, serves as the high school career center for the three school districts in Clarendon, and the county's adult education program also operates out of the facility.

A Charlotte native and Manning resident, Justice was a classroom teacher for a total of 18 years between the two cities. In 2011, she became an assistant principal at Marvin Ridge High School in Waxhaw, North Carolina, just outside of Charlotte. She has a total of more than 25 years' experience in education as a teacher and administrator, the college's release said.

Justice holds a bachelor's degree in English from Wingate University, which is also just outside Charlotte. Additionally, she has a master's degree in divergent learning from Columbia College and another master's in educational leadership from Winthrop University. She's enrolled in the Doctor of Education in Curriculum Studies program at the University of South Carolina.

"I am excited for the opportunity to continue to serve the students and families of Clarendon County," Justice said. "Central Carolina Technical College has a long-ranging vision for our career center, and I will support all efforts to make us the premier destination in the area."

Outside of education, she's also active in Clarendon as a children's advocate. Justice serves as president of the Optimist Club of Clarendon, a local volunteer organization that sponsors programs and events for the community's youth. She's also a trained volunteer with the Cass Elias McCarter Guardian ad Litem program of Clarendon County.
