FLORENCE, SC (WMBF) - Roy Ann Jolley, principal of Delmae Heights Elementary School, has been named the Florence One 2016-2017 Principal of the Year. 

According to a press release, Jolley, who has served as principal of the school for the past 16 years, received a surprise visit to the Delmae Elementary School faculty meeting on Monday by Superintendent Randy Bridges, who publicly made the announcement.

Jolley, who is a Florence native and graduate of Wilson High School, began working in Florence One in 1973 as an instructional assistant at what was known as Holmes Elementary School.  She later became a teacher at Holmes - now known as Lester Elementary - in 1975, where she worked for 17 years, the release stated. 

From 1992 until 2000, Jolley served as curriculum coordinator at Briggs Elementary, the release stated. In 2000, she became principal at Delmae Heights.  She received both Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in elementary education from Francis Marion University, as well as receiving administrative certification from the University of South Carolina.

Florence One Superintendent Dr. Randy Bridges said, “To have one’s peers recognize you for doing what they do at a high level is special,” said Bridges. “During my time in Florence School District One,  I have had the opportunity to interact with Ms. Jolley often and to also make a number of visits to Delmae Elementary.  What stands out about Ms. Jolley is her passion for ensuring that quality educational opportunities are provided for all children.”
