Shiree Turner Fowler, a kindergarten teacher at Hollis Elementary Academy, has been named the Greenville County Teacher of the Year. Fowler holds a bachelor’s degree in sociology and social work from Seattle University and a master’s degree in elementary education from City University in Seattle.

Fowler has been a teacher for 12 years, and has taught at Hollis for the past two years.

Fowler wanted to become a social worker so she could create empowering community-based programs for at-risk youth. Once she began working with youth, she realized that although the children needed the programs, they were in need of something much greater. “To improve their lives, they first needed a quality education,” she said. “I became committed to teaching in Title I Schools, which are schools with at least 40 percent poverty rate, because of my commitment to the young people I worked with.”

NGU-General-Store-1

The T. P. Wood Store, a historic landmark for a century is now part of North Greenville University and next month is scheduled to reopen as Tigerville General Store.

The ancient country store once housed the Tigerville Post Office, and the Tyger Masonic Lodge. The property was in the Wood Family until it became property of the university recently. Several decades ago it was the scene of a horrific crime when bandits murdered the postmistress in the post office part of the building.

As late as the 1970s and 1980s The Wood store was a gathering place for residents of the community who got together to relive memories of days gone bye.  During the winter men of the community gathered around the “pot-belly stove” in the retail area. On cool summer evenings a bench out front was a favorite gathering place. Sometimes there would even be a game of checkers.
