Cindy Crook ’72 is the director of education at the Lowcountry Pregnancy Center and has worked at LPC since 2005. She became interested in the LPC when she was part of a prayer team that prayed for the Center and the unborn.  The director of the ministry was part of the prayer team.  The job opened, and she applied.

Her earlier years of work experience were with the SC Department of Social Services, Bryson Middle School in Greenville County and Oakbrook Middle School in Dorchester Two in Summerville. She said those past work experiences certainly prepared her for the work of the Lowcountry Pregnancy Center.
