Orangeburg County School District finance officials promoted | Local

A new business opportunity for Gist’s spouse prohibited her family from making the transition to Orangeburg as originally planned. Gist recently accepted the offer to lead Spartanburg School District Two’s finance team.

Sanders received her bachelor’s degree in business administration from Claflin University in 1988, and a master’s in human resource management from Webster University in 2007. She is a certified South Carolina School Business Official and is a member of both the South Carolina and Southeastern Associations of School Business Officials.

As assistant superintendent, Sanders will lead all aspects of Orangeburg County School District’s Finance Division, including payroll, procurement and budgeting.

Felder received a bachelor’s degree in accounting from South Carolina State University in 1990, and she is a certified South Carolina School Business Official.

After working in Orangeburg County Consolidated School District 5 for nearly 20 years in varying roles from Title I coordinator, business manager, human resources manager analyst II, payroll specialist and budget/pupil activity accountant, she served most recently as the consolidated district’s senior accountant.

“I am very excited for this opportunity,” Felder said. “It’s truly an honor to serve in this way as we work together to build and grow the finance team by sharing my knowledge and experiences.”
