A resident of Rock Hill since the early 70s, Doug Echols has long played a pivotal role in the growth of his community. He was a teacher and head football coach at Northwestern High School upon his initial move to Rock Hill where he grew that school and its athletic program to its status as one of the most respected in the state. It was 1998 when he took up the reins as mayor and has been reelected three times since then. We’ll talk about his impact on the history of the town, his ideas and passions for what a small town can be and his projection for the futre of Rock Hill.
