Hello! I am Stephanie Hickmon and I'm happy to be a part of the 2nd Grade Team here at Lemira. I am a native of Sumter and a proud product of Sumter School District. I earned my Bachelor's in Elementary Education from Winthrop University with a minor in dance. One of my favorite quotes is... "Bloom where you are planted." It was my desire to give back to the community where I was nurtured. This is my sixth year teaching. In my career, I have been honored to be named a Distinguished Literacy Teacher and a Campus Teacher of the Year. In our community, I also volunteer at Jehovah Missionary Baptist Church, the Caroline Mack Center for the Arts and serve with my sorors of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.
