Mr. Derek Lawson

I am currently serving KCSD as the Senior Systems Specialist. In this role, I am primarily responsible for the system infrastructure including over 120 servers as well as integration of technology across our district. I am also responsible for our security applications which ensure that we are all operating on a safe and secure network.

I have been in technology for over 28 years, serving the last four in the Kershaw County School District.

I am married to Angie Lawson, Music Teacher at Pine Tree Hill Elementary School. We have one child, Garrett Lawson, who attended school in Kershaw County and is currently a junior at the University of South Carolina.
