Front Office

 Shirley Rice, Administrative Assistant

My journey at Hollywood Elementary started in 1997 as a volunteer/ substitute teacher. I was hired in 2000 as a kindergarten aide and since then have been an aide in both pre-k and kindergarten, a literacy tutor, and a secretary. I currently serve as the administrative assistant for the school. I love working with children and the Hollywood community has become my extended family. I am so blessed to have a job that I enjoy each and every day.


Born and raised in Salina, Kansas, I have called South Carolina home for the past 26 years. I live on beautiful Lake Murray with my husband Randy, my daughter Randi Danielle, our dog Aspen and our newest addition to the family Randi’s Tabby cat, Cali. My husband and I own Renegade Trucking Company, LLC and my daughter attends USC. Go Gamecocks!!


I attended Kanas State University and before moving to South Carolina had a career in the nursery/landscape business. My hobbies include reading, baking, photography, and gardening.
