My name is Harper Bourque, I am from Clover but now live in Edgemoor with my husband and daughter. We have a little girl who is almost a year old named Hollis. We are huge Clemson fans and love to spend our Saturdays watching/attending football games! I began at WCCS in the eighth grade then continued to attend through high school. Later, I attended Tri-County Technical College where I received my Associates Degree. I came back to the Rock Hill area to complete my Bachelor’s Degree at Winthrop. Since then, I have worked at the Goddard School and later became a stay at home mom! I am so excited to be working again, especially at such an amazing school!!
