Lexington, SC 05/04/2022 - Lexington County School District One Superintendent Greg Little, Ed.D., announced Wednesday that Jeffrey S. Salters, the district’s chief operations officer, plans to retire effective September 8, 2022.
Of his retirement, Dr. Little says, “For nearly three decades, Mr. Salters dedicated himself to our school district, working tirelessly to support our students, staff and schools. He’s managed countless projects, from the building of new schools to the implementation of technologies, which all advanced our schools and led us to become one of the best districts in the state. I am honored to call him my colleague and friend. I wish him the best as he soon enjoys his well-deserved retirement.”
Salters began his career in 1994 as a network administrator for Resource Bancshares Mortgage Group in Columbia. He joined the Lexington District One family the following year as assistant coordinator of information technology, where he provided technology support for the district’s financial management system.
In 1997, Salters was promoted to Information and Communication Technologies Director. In this role, he managed districtwide software rollouts and web development as well as support of the district’s servers and employee devices. Salters was then promoted to Chief Information Officer in 2007, leading the district’s expanding information technology division and piloting 1:1 devices for students.
Salters became the Chief Operations Officer in 2010 where he oversaw IT, facilities and maintenance, student services, athletics, safety and security, and transportation for nine years. During this time, he coordinated the implementation of a $336-million bond referendum, developed the annual operations budget, led districtwide emergency response, and supported the financial and operating needs of all schools and offices.
In 2019, Salters took on the additional duties of chief financial officer, while student services, athletics, transportation and IT responsibilities shifted to other divisions. He, along with the strong finance and procurement teams, conducted long-range financial planning, developed financial reports that routinely received awards from the Association of School Business Officials International and the Government Finance Officers Association.
During his tenure, the district built and opened several new schools including Centerville Elementary, Beechwood Middle, the new Pelion Middle and Lakeside Middle, and also completed numerous addition and renovation projects.
Salters holds a Bachelor of Science in business administration from University of South Carolina and a Master of Business Administration from Colorado State University.
He is a member of the South Carolina Association of School Administrators and South Carolina Association of School Business Officials, among many other local and state organizations.

Dr. Henry Salter’s ties to Clemson University run deep.
So deep, in fact, four generations of his family — including twin daughters — proudly call Clemson their alma mater. His grandfather rowed and ran cross country. His father graduated with a degree in civil engineering.
Salter graduated with a degree in biochemistry and married a Clemson alumna.
“My wife graduated in recreational therapy and her father taught English at Clemson,” he said. “I’ve been living around here since 1985, off and on.”
Salter used to moonlight at Redfern Health Center when he was a resident at Greenville Memorial Hospital in 1989. He would come in on Thursday afternoons and conduct women’s exams and write prescriptions. A year later, he began his professional career as an OBGYN generalist.
For years, he delivered babies, performed surgeries and handled general OBGYN work in the Upstate of South Carolina — he’s practiced medicine in Greenville, Seneca and Easley. With an eye on less obstetrics and more outpatient treatment, Salter joined the Student Health Services staff as a physician in October 2018.
“I’ve always been interested in preventive health, STI prevention and treatment, contraception and other emerging technologies,” said Salter, whose daughters are now physicians at Duke University Medical Center. “My focus is on all kinds of sexually-related issues for men and women. I’ve been very happy with how our services have grown and how busy our schedule is.”
Salter previously worked with Redfern’s medical director — Dr. Lesslie Pekarek — at Baptist Easley Hospital. Now, he is a member of Pekarek’s team serving the student population at Clemson. He works alongside Annette Whelchel, a nurse practitioner, in overseeing women’s health, as well as sexual, reproductive and LGBTQ services.
He views the variety of medical specialties as a major strength of the Redfern staff. He also said Redfern is one of the easiest, most collaborative environments he’s ever worked in — all with the focus of serving Clemson’s students to the fullest extent possible.
“I like seeing the focus of education on incoming first-year students,” he said. “One of the greatest things about the job is students. I get excited about going to work on Sunday because these students want to be healthy and overcome any issues that they have. From a societal standpoint, I’m happy to support the next generation of leaders and help them avoid or overcome any obstacles that could prevent them from performing to their fullest.”

COLUMBIA — The capital city’s new business recruiter will start her role targeting regional, Charleston and Greenville restaurants and retailers in hopes of enticing owners to open a location in Columbia.
The economic development office has hired Grace Salter as business-recruitment manager as part of a “business friendly” initiative announced by members of the City Council more than a year ago.
The recruiter position was meant to apply the mentality of the state Commerce Department, the late councilman Joe Taylor said at the time. But rather than going after large manufacturing campuses, the city was seeking someone who could woo companies that want to build hotels, restaurants and corporations.
“We’ve got to go recruit new capital,” Taylor said. “We need new buildings. We need new corporate offices.”
Salter, a Columbia native and University of South Carolina grad, most recently served as the college’s director of outreach and engagement for veterans and military affairs. She also has experience doing marketing for an apartment developer.
Salter already has a travel-packed fall ahead, with plans to attend retail trade shows in Los Angeles, Nashville, Charlotte and Charleston.
While retail is where Salter will focus to begin, she said apartment development and expanding the city’s insurance technology sector could come later.
Salter said a full-service hotel is another gap in the market.
“Columbia is ready for a full-service hotel,” she said.
This is one need that is soon expected to be filled, as developer Ben Arnold seeks to build a 301-room, dual-branded Hyatt hotel in the Vista, with on-site restaurants, 24-hour room service, 5,000 square feet of meeting space and a pool complete with cabanas. If completed, it would mark the city’s first four-star property.
Columbia’s economic development office has conducted recruiting efforts previously, Salter said, but the city has never had an employee 100 percent dedicated to the task.
Salter said she plans to begin by looking to surrounding cities, such as Charleston and Greenville, identify which of their restaurants and retail businesses have already launched expansion efforts and urge them to consider Columbia as well. She also plans to seek out new national brands.
When a national retail brand is seeking to enter a market, the arrangement is often made between real estate brokers, said Bobby Balboni of NAI Columbia commercial real estate firm. They’ll hire a national firm that then subcontracts with a local broker to help find a space.
“That’s kind of a pain point for us,” Balboni said.
Brands will tease that they’re considering bringing a new store to Columbia but ultimately opt to open an additional location in Greenville or Charleston, where they’re already established, instead.
“It’s pretty frustrating honestly,” Balboni said.
Regional brands behave differently but are not without their own difficulties.
A downtown Charleston restaurateur may have satellite locations in West Ashley or Mount Pleasant. But those come with the benefit of being able to share staff when needed, Balboni said. A Columbia location would require building a new team in an already tight labor market.
Greenville, often held up by Columbia as the standard for economic development, also has plans for a dedicated focus on restaurant and retail recruitment as the city reorganizes its own development efforts, said city Councilman John DeWorken.
Historically, the city had set aside a portion of property tax dollars to fund major public-private partnership projects, such as the area surrounding the Greenville Drive minor league baseball stadium. But those special funds are ending.
Greenville is forming a nonprofit organization, allowing it to raise some private funding to finance its economic development efforts. In addition to retail, the group will have experts in real estate development, technology and innovation and small business, DeWorken said.
Where Rox Pollard, a commercial real estate broker with Colliers, sees the most benefit to Columbia hiring an in-house recruiter is from a marketing perspective.
“What’s been frustrating is when Colliers has a prospect that comes to town and we’re the ones who have to tell the story,” he said.
Pollard said it would be helpful to have an external expert that firms can bring in to answer questions.
Salter said she also sees her role as “telling the Columbia story to businesses.”
“It’s been really exciting to see Columbia change over the past decade,” she said. “We’re building a place where people want to come and call home.”

For as long as most people can remember, the Shirer family has been a staple supporting the Gamecocks Football Team every fall Saturday. Two weekends ago marked a special milestone in that storied history, as the Matriarch in that the family once again was present to support the team, as she has done since she was a freshman student in 1954, watching Rex Enright roaming the sidelines.
Over that time, Jean Sires Shirer has seen a lot of ups and downs. She followed in her mother’s footsteps as a die-hard supporter of basketball, football, and everything Carolina. As a child, listening to games on the radio in Salters, there was only one allegiance – the Gamecocks. She can recall her freshman year and moving into the former Sims Dormitory. Attending “Big Thursday” and playing basketball in the Carolina Field House are just a few memories that have not faded with time.
Jean went on to raise four children who all graduated from Carolina. Given the passion for the Gamecocks, there wasn’t much choice of which school they were pulling for. For over 50 years, she and her husband Carlisle were staples at football games, home and away. They spent fall Saturday afternoons with close friends from Kingstree and often tailgated in the Farmer’s market, win or lose. She now has many grandchildren, who also breathe Garnet and Black and share those same traditions.
Now, at 87, time and an aging body has more recently limited her ability to watch games in person – (but always watching on every media vehicle possible). Saturday, September 2, she made a determined return to Williams-Brice one more time…. To watch her grandson, Hunter Rogers. Rogers, who is the Long-Snapper on the South Carolina Football team, has often attributed his love for the Gamecocks and decision to attend Carolina to his grandparents who took him to football games, both in Columbia and on the road.
For any Gamecock fan who needs a reminder of hard times as a Carolina fan, just ask Jean Sires Shirer. She’s been there …. Regardless of the outcome, she always finds the joy in supporting her team and is a proud alum. She’ll be pulling for her grandson this season and rooting on the Gamecocks like she has for over 70 years. For the Shirers, it’s a family tradition.
