Mr. Steve Williams

I am a proud graduate of South Carolina State University, where I earned a BA in Psychology, a MA in Rehabilitation Counseling, and an Ed.S. in School Leadership.  Although I took a non-traditional route to become an educator, I know that education is my calling.  Before becoming an educator, I worked as an online travel agent and an HIV/AIDS counselor.
 My first job in education was at Orangeburg Wilkinson High School as a Special Education Teacher.  I was blessed to begin my administrative career at Orangeburg-Wilkinson High as an Assistant Principal.  As an Assistant Principal, I was deeply committed to improving academic achievement and lifelong learning skills for all students.
I have been the director of The Orangeburg Technology Center for the past five years.   Career and Technical Education has never been more critical than it is now. Whether you plan to go to work straight out of high school or eventually earn a Ph.D., whether you have a clear career goal or just want to learn something practical and new, you can benefit from CTE.
When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my loving wife and beautiful daughter.  My hobbies are fishing, hunting, reading, and writing.
