FCTC Teacher of the Year


Teacher of the Year

Mr. Marwin McKnight is the Barbering Instructor at Fairfield Career and Technology Center. He has been employed with the school district for 7 years. Prior to working for FCTC, he was an Instructor at Beaufort-Jasper Academy for Career Excellence for 16 years. Additionally, he has been an established business owner for over 20 years. "Barbering led me to teaching" said Mr. McKnight.  He was initially influenced to become a teacher by the Cosmetology instructor from his former high school as well as his OJT Barber instructor/mentor. Growing up, he knew he wanted to become a barber and have his own business; therefore, when he was afforded the opportunity to be a barber apprentice, he took it. "That was the best decision I ever made, and it led me directly to where I am today, a teacher." Mr. McKnight is married to JaNetta McKnight, and they have 2 children (Dakya and Jaila) and a grandson (King Marvin).
