Honoring Our Retirees!

This year's retirees are by no means strangers to Skyland.  They have seen many changes over the years, but they have remained a constant at our school.  Due to their passion and faithfulness to their careers, they will be leaving a lasting legacy when they retire.  

Dr. Carolyn Styles, Principal - Dr. Styles has passionately served the Blue Ridge community for 33 years and has touched the lives of many througout her career at Skyland Elementary School.  Her genuine love for children and her desire for Skyland to be "A Place Where Children Flourish" have led our school to earn the prestigious National Blue Ribbon Award for excellence in student achievement.  She has created a positive school community where students and families are proud to call Skyland home.   She is well known for her "open door" policy where she always makes time for students, staff, parents, and community members.  She uplifts everyone's spirits that she comes in contact with, and her infectious laugh makes everyone smile.   In her retirement, Dr. Styles will continue her devotion to the field of education as an adjunct professor at North Greenville University.  She  is also looking forward to spending more time with her husband and the rest of her family.

Mrs. Shirley Lindley -  Mrs. Lindley has admirably served Greenville County Schools for 32 years, 23 of those as secretary of Skyland Elementary School.  She is truly one of the quiet "giants" working hard behind the scenes.  She is always willing to help students, teachers, and staff members, and is one of the friendliest faces and voices at our school.  In retirement, she looks forward to spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren.

Mr. Ron Gunter -  Mr. Gunter has taught at Skyland since the new school opened 21 years ago, and has been in the same classroom the entire timeHe is famous for his wacky science experiments, his "Reading Tree," and for going out of his way to make learning fun and exciting.  Mr. Gunter has a true heart for teaching and a genuine love for kids.  While at Skyland, he has created many opportunities for students to shine, including the SETV News Show and the History Club.  After he retires, he plans to paint more, read more, and ride his zipline!

We wish all of our retirees the very best.  They will be missed. 

Congratulations Dr. Styles!
