Letter from the Director


Dear Swofford Parents and Community,


As Director of H B Swofford Career Center, it is my pleasure to welcome everyone back for another great semester. We are all excited to have students back in our building with energy and enthusiasm. It is our mission to help every student feel welcomed, connected, and a part of the Swofford family. Additionally, we strive to challenge each student to become College And Career Ready through academic and career classes. Swofford has great teachers who have all been successful in business and industry before becoming a teacher. They utilize state-approved standards and local advisory committees to teach relevant skills required in the industry.  Teachers also stress the work ethic and soft skills needed to be successful in life. 


I am honored to serve as the director of H B Swofford Career Center and it is truly a privilege to be a part of the Spartanburg District One and Two communities. A place where parents, teachers and students care for each other and strive to build positive relationships that support the Student Centered educational process. Please feel free to contact me at 864-592-2790 or at ssimpkins@swofford.k12.sc.us. 


Once again, welcome back and let’s make it another great year at H B Swofford Career Center!
