RCAEOP Member spotlight of the month

Eronda Jackson!!!

Let's get to know our member..

How long have you been an RCAEOP Member?

10 years

That's amazing, thank you for your dedication! Where are you originally from?

Wichita, KS

I'd love to know a little about you.

I am a Kansas girl born and raised. Moved to SC in 1995 and have enjoyed it ever since. I have 2 sons that are maturing into fine young men. I've been married 27 years and counting to Ramone Jackson. I have been employed with Richland School District Two for 16 years and all of my years have been at Richland Northeast High School.

I hear today is your birthday too, HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Richland Northeast is lucky to have you! What are your passions when you're not at work?

I really enjoy being with my family and traveling. I enjoy walking and exercising. I also like to craft when I'm in the mood and try new foods and activities.

What others say about Eronda...

"Eronda Jackson is the epitome of what an office professional should be. She is an example for all office professionals and professionals in general. She has a calming and unifying temperament that endears her to everyone, she operates from a place of faith and integrity and she is highly respected by her colleagues, subordinates and supervisors alike."

Special messages from two very special young men...

"Yuhhhhhh Congratulations on being named RCAEOP Member of the Month I am very proud of you as well happy for you. You deserve it and much more but the rest will come for sure. You always tell me and Myles that "it's gonna pay off and someone sees the work you do", well this is one reward for the hard work you do. I love you and CONGRATULATIONS again Ma. (P.S. What a day huh 2 for 1 for the Birthday Gurl <3 )"


"My mom is one of the strongest and most resilient people I know. She has taught me to never quit and to keep moving forward even if it feels like you can't. Congratulations Ma I love you."
