Debbie Jones

Membership Relations Manager Florence County Economic Development Partnership

Professional Bio

I most recently served as the Executive Director for the statewide organization, South Carolina Future Minds and have over 12 years of experience in the nonprofit industry. In my new role I will be responsible for the day-to-day management of Florence County Progress, including membership development, member relations, member services and programs.
I am a native of Virginia and have lived in Florence for over twenty years. After volunteering with The School Foundation here in Florence, I began working with South Carolina Future Minds and am now eager to take that knowledge back to my home county. As the mother of three Florence School District One graduates, two of whom now work within the county, I am looking forward to supporting economic growth and progress within Florence County.
I am a graduate of Meredith College and have served in a wide-array of leadership roles at the local and state levels, including the SC PTA, YMCA Florence, and Emerging Leaders Florence. I am a 2020 Riley Fellow, 2020 Public Education Policy Fellow, graduate of the Non-profit Leadership Institute at Francis Marion and currently serve on the board of SC First Steps of Florence.
