Mr. Frierson was born in 1960 to Roy and Jean Frierson, third of four children. Being a pastor?s son, the Frierson?s lived in South Carolina and Georgia before moving to Japan as missionaries. They served in Japan and Africa for 20 years. Mr. Frierson returned home in 1977 to Augusta to attend college, graduating from Charleston Southern University in 1981 with a B.S. degree in Developmental Psychology.

In 1984, Mr. Frierson began his educational career, teaching elementary school at Houghton Elementary on Greene Street in Augusta. He then taught middle and high school, coaching softball, basketball, football, and golf while earning an M.Ed. in Elementary Education at University of South Carolina. After spending six years at C.T. Walker Magnet School and adding an Educational Specialist degree in Administration, Mr. Frierson became Assistant Principal for Instruction at Academy of Richmond County, then was promoted to principal at Garrett Elementary and Hephzibah Middle School.

Mr. Frierson has been married to Lori Frierson for 31 years, and they have two sons, Zach, who lives in the Nashville area and is married to Delaney, and Caleb, who lives in the CSRA.
