Bryan Hearn, Director
I was thrilled to be named Director of LTC in May of 2013. The past two years has truly been a great experience, and we are off to a fantastic start in 2015-16! I love working with high school students as they explore the limitless opportunities that are tied to Career and Technical Education (CTE) in high school. I work with a knowledgeable and dedicated faculty and staff.
Bryce Myers, Assistant Director
In August of 1999, I found my workplace home at Lexington Technology Center as a Business and Marketing teacher. Over the past 17 years as a teacher and then administrator, I have thoroughly enjoyed working with faculty, staff, and students at LTC. I believe Career and Technology Education (CTE) is an integral part of the education process as students apply their knowledge from core classes and learn employable skills that make them more marketable when searching for a job. Seeing students' successes and achievements over that time and after leaving LTC is what makes being an educator worthwhile!
I graduated from Francis Marion University in 1997 with a Bachelors of Business Administration degree. Upon graduation, I interviewed around the state for jobs in operations, management, and sales. However, after working a a church youth camp, I felt led to work with students in education. From there, I enrolled at Winthrop University and completed my Masters of Arts in Teaching in Business Education in December of 1998. After a semester at Mount Pleasant High School in NC, I moved back home to South Carolina and Lexington Technology Center. I have been here since.
Since 1999, I taught Keyboarding, Computer Applications, Entrepreneurship, Marketing, Marketing Management, Sports Marketing and Sports Management. I also coached golf for nine years. We won five AAAA Girls Golf State Championships (2004-2008). After teaching for eight years, I began working as an administrator. My duties have included instruction, operations, scheduling discipline, shuttle buses, textbooks, inventories, budgets, evaluations, substitutes and more. As assistant director, I help oversee all of the CTE programs at LTC and those CTE programs at Lexington One high schools. In my time working under previous Director, Ken Lake, and current Director, Bryan Hearn, there has been tremendous growth. We've expanded the building three times and added multiple programs, including various business courses, Engineering, Culinary Arts, Firefighting, Law Enforcement, and our current focus Computer Science and IT. Time has flown by, and it has been a wonderful experience!
I live in Lexington with my wife, Carlee, and four children: Brayden (11), McKenna (7), Carson (5), and Reeves (1). I'm a Gamecock fanatic. I enjoy all sports, especially golf. I love to cook, spend time with family and friends, and give back whenever and wherever possible.
Rosemary Bianchi, CTE Program Manager
I am very excited to serve as the CTE Program Manager for Lexington Technology Center. As a member of the administrative team, I help assist with the day-to-day activities at LTC. I also oversee the Center for Advanced STEM Studies and the development of LTC's Computer Science and IT Academy.
I graduated from the University of Georgia in 2008 with a Bachelor of Science in Occupational Studies with a major in Business Education. I taught Business Education courses for three years with Gwinnett County Public Schools in Lawrenceville, GA and Suwanee, GA. Then I moved to Mount Pleasant, SC where I taught at Wando High School for four years. The variety of courses I taught in the classroom have provided me with an extensive knowledge and understanding of computer science and information technology. I hold industry certifications in the Adobe Creative Suite, Microsoft Office Suite and the CompTIA Strata IT Fundamentals certification. In 2015, I was recognized as the South Carolina Business Education Association Secondary Teacher of the Year and the South Carolina Association of Career and Technical Education Teacher of the Year.
I look forward to being a part of LTC's continued success in career and technology education!
