Sunday General Session Speaker

Damara Hightower Mitchell

Vice President of Engagement and Partnerships at Branch Alliance for Educator Diversity

Dr. Damara Hightower has been an educator and administrator for more than 20 years. Within one year of beginning her career as an English Teacher, she was promoted to Dean of Students and went on to become an assistant principal by the age of 24. Since that time, she has held progressively responsible leadership roles in K-16 settings to include Assistant Vice President for Student Affairs at Benedict College, Education Associate at the South Carolina State Department of Education, Assistant Professor and Director of Curriculum and Instruction at Claflin University, and an Academic Administrator in the Office of the Provost and Leadership Capstone instructor at the University of South Carolina.

Having earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree in English Education from Benedict College, a Master of Education in Educational Leadership and Supervision-K-12 from the University of Southern Mississippi, and a Doctorate of Education in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of South Carolina, Dr. Hightower is clear that her purpose is to help others transform their lives through education. Her work and scholarship center on educational equity and access for underrepresented populations with an emphasis on first-generation college students and learners from low socioeconomic backgrounds. She has also garnered extensive experience in accreditation and assessment and is a sought-after consultant and motivational speaker as the owner of Catalyst Educational Consulting.

In August of 2015, Dr. Hightower proudly accepted the challenge of rebuilding educator preparation at her undergraduate alma mater and was appointed Dean of the School of Education at Benedict College and currently serves as the President of the South Carolina Association for Colleges of Teacher Education.
