FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Charleston, SC—SC Future Minds Executive Director Caroline Mauldin has been selected as a 2018 Forty Under 40 winner by the Charleston Regional Business Journal, nominated by members of the Charleston community. 2018 marks the 21st anniversary of the Forty Under 40 awards.
Mauldin started with SC Future Minds in June 2016. In her role, she is charged with building bridges between South Carolina’s business community and the public education system. The organization is most well-known for hosting the state’s Teacher of the Year gala, at which over 600 educators, business leaders, and policymakers celebrate the contribution of public school teachers to South Carolina.
Mauldin is building on the success of that annual event to elevate the public perception of teachers, as well as to encourage policymakers to tackle the systemic challenges that have created South Carolina’s current teacher shortage.
In addition to leading SC Future Minds, Mauldin serves on the boards of The Nature Conservancy of South Carolina and Charleston Legal Access. She is a graduate of the Riley Institute’s Diversity Leaders Initiative and a fellow with the Truman National Security Project. Mauldin holds a MBA from MIT Sloan School of Management and a MPA from Harvard Kennedy School of Government. She is a native of Columbia and resides in Charleston.
Since 1998, the Business Journal’s Forty under 40 list has been comprised of people under 40 years of age who have excelled in the professional arena and in community involvement. A panel of judges determined who among the nominees would be named to the 2018 class of Forty Under 40. The group of 40 individuals was recognized at Alhambra Hall in Mt. Pleasant on Thursday, May 17, 2018.
