The Limestone College Extended Campus site in the Lowcountry has been serving students since 1989.

Ron is the Lowcountry Area Coordinator and has been with Limestone, in one capacity or another, since 1988. After 30 years in the U.S. Navy, Ron retired as Senior Chief Operations Specialist in 1987.
