A mother, preacher, teacher, and coach. Sharonda Singleton was many things to many people.

“She had to be bursting with energy. She was here everyday,” recalls her principal at Goose Creek High School, Jimmy Huskey. “When somebody would come and talk to her, she always willing to listen to them. She would smile that big smile of hers and she would be willing to help every other child.”

Sharonda was a speech therapist & the girls head track and field coach. Huskey believes her enthusiasm for work made her popular with more than her teaching peers.

“When she came to games you knew she was there she was going to be yelling. She was going to be screaming for the gators. She loved Goose Creek High School and I just cant tell you how hard it is to lose somebody of that caliber.”

Her service knew no bounds, extending into Emanuel A.M.E., where she served the church as a reverend. Her ministry went hand-in-hand with motherhood. Sharonda was a single parent, raising three children. Her oldest, Chris, is a sophomore on the Charleston Southern University baseball team. Singleton has two other children who are younger than Chris.

principal Huskey delivered a special message to the Singleton children and other kids who are grieving the loss of a role model. “Tell them  to keep doing the right things and doing what she preached. It is to get an education… so you have the opportunity to move forward, treat people with respect and love each other.”

One of Sharonda’s friends (who will remain anonymous) was asked what he/she will remember most about Sharonda, simply said “she did everything the right way.”
