Ken Richardson Biography:
Ken Richardson was elected Chairman of the Horry County Board of Education in a county-wide election in November 2018.  After two decades serving on the Board of Directors for Horry Georgetown Technical College, most of that time as the Chair, Richardson resigned his state appointment after being elected to be the Chair of the Board of Education. He will continue to expand his passionate commitment to public education, while focusing now on the foundational importance of K-12 teaching and learning. His four-year term ends in 2022.

A native of Horry County, Richardson attended Conway schools and became the owner of a successful automobile dealership. He hopes to bring his business experience and understanding of higher education to his new leadership role as the Chair of the Board of Education, the governing body for Horry County Schools.

Richardson and his wife, Donna, are both longtime Conway residents. They have two adult children and two grandchildren.
