The Next DHEC Director
Today, Catherine Templeton announced her resignation as Director of the South Carolina Department of Health & Environmental Control.
We thank Director Templeton for her service to the state and we are confident that she will take the perspective she gained from within DHEC to advocate for protecting our health and our environment.
DHEC has a large and complex mission and touches the lives of all South Carolinians. We urge the DHEC Board to focus its search for her replacement on candidates with considerable experience and knowledge in the fields of public health and environmental protection. Look out for more updates from us going forward.
