My name is Dr. Ernest E. Mackins, and I have worked in the field of education for the past 15 years. For the past nine years,​ I have served as​ an Administrator in Anderson School District Two. Before working for And​erson School District Two, I was the Science Department Chair at Riverside Middle School. For six years, I taught 7th and 8t h Grade Science at Riverside Middle School in Pendleton, South Carolina. I also served as a Global Development Facilitator (GCDF) and Transition Specialist in Oconee County during the 2006-2007 school year at the Adult Education Center in Oconee County.

My educational background is extensive, as I received a double major from Clemson University in 1998, which included a Bachelor of Science in Finance and a Bachelor of Science in Marketing. I spent 15 years in the business world, where I served as a retail store manager for 10 years and another five years as an assistant bank manager at a local bank. I elected to continue my education when I felt a calling to the field of education. I received my Master of Arts in Middle School Teaching (MAT) in May 2007 from Clemson University. Go Tigers! I also received my Master of School Administration in August of 2011 from Furman University. In January of 2016, I completed my Educational Specialist Degree from Clemson University (Ed.S.). I just graduated from Converse University on May 20, 2021, with my Doctorate of Education in Professional Leadership. I am a US Army Veteran who served during the Desert Storm Campaign. I have been married to Erica L. Mackins for 21 years, and we have resided in Anderson for the last 31 years. We have two children, Adrian (19) and Travis (15).

This is why I know collaboration and cooperation are the way to move our community and our country forward without sacrificing our Christian core values!
