Mr. Brad Freeman - Area 1
Brad Freeman was born and raised in Anderson, SC and is a proud graduate of Westside High School, Class of 1980. During his time at Westside he was both a pitcher for the baseball team and a quarterback for the football team, which only magnified his Westside Ram pride. Additionally, between the years of 1992 and 1993, Brad was a proud coach of the TL Hanna High School baseball team. Freeman's participation in District 5 sports resulted in allegiance and dedication as a fan, and he continues to support Anderson Five teams by regularly showing up to the stands to cheer on our students.
Not only is he a product of Anderson District 5, Freeman is also grateful for the education and opportunity that this Anderson Five provided to his daughters: Elizabeth, Chandler and Alex. Brad's investment in this community continues as he supports two of his three daughters as teachers in the school district at Homeland Park Primary and Midway Elementary. Freeman's daughters' commitment to the students of our community has given him a new perspective on the shared responsibility to raise leaders of the future, which includes two of his grandchildren...and hopefully more to come!
Mr. Freeman enjoys spending time and making memories with his family - wife (Doris,) children, and grandchildren. He appreciates simplicity and loves sitting at the dinner table and enjoying a meal surrounded by the people he loves the most. A dedicated Clemson fan, Brad spends many Saturdays during the fall cheering on his Clemson Tigers in Death Valley and beyond.
As a member and volunteer at New Spring Church, Brad's values as a Christian guide his daily life. Freeman has spent his entire adult life as a public servant retiring from over 25 years in law enforcement. The majority of this time was spent with the South Carolina Highway Patrol (SCHP). Following his time with the SCHP, Freeman was given the responsibility of placing security officers within Anderson School District Five's elementary schools, which provided him with additional insight into the needs of students, faculty and staff. While that chapter of his life has come to a close, Brad is honored and excited for the opportunity to be actively involved, once again, in the betterment of the community. Freeman hopes to make a positive difference in the lives of Anderson Five students, empowering them to build a stronger future for our community, state, and beyond.
