Mr. Kevin Randall Haynie

I began my interest in electricity and electronics when I was very young and went on to complete a two-year program in Industrial Electronics at my high school career center in Norfolk, Va. in 1979. Upon graduation from high school in Brunswick, Maine in 1980, I went directly into the US Army Infantry with the 82nd Airborne Division at Fort Bragg, NC. I moved to the area in 1983 after my discharge, choosing Anderson County because my father was from the area, and started out living with my grandparents in Belton. I ended up serving a brief period in the Army National Guard then swithing to the Army Reserve. I was married in 1985 and I worked a variety of different jobs which lead to me going to technical college, recieving an associate degree in 1987. While working on my degree, I was in the Technical Scholarship program working as a software support specialist. My son was born in 1986, so I then began my first job as a technician for Milliken & Co., prior to my graduation. In 1988, I left Milliken for the Greenville Hospital System where I repaired and maintained medical equipment, I returned to Milliken as a technician in 1989 and immediately began taking classes towards my bachelor degree, which I completed in 1992. I continued to work for Milliken as an engineer until 1998, leaving for the plant engineer position at Santens. I began my teaching career in Anderson School District 3, teaching Electronics Technology from the middle of the 1999-2000 school year until beginning my present position at AIT at it's opening in 2019. During my time at Crescent, I had to leave my classroom twice for active duty with the Army Reserve. The first was during the 2004-05 school year to perform duties as a Drll Sergeant at Fort Jackson, SC. The second time was the 2006-07 and the first 3 months of the 2007-08 school years to serve on an Iraqi National Police Transition Team in Baghdad, Iraq. I retired from the US Army Reserve as an E-8/1SG or First Sergeant in 2008. Finally, I completed my masters degree in December of 2020, at the age of 58.
