Principal

Marlene DeWit

This is my 27th year in education and I have been at Ebenezer for 25 of those years. I have been a teacher, assistant principal, and principal during my time here. I love the school, students, and community that I am blessed to get to work with or be a part of. In my personal life, I have been married to my high school sweetheart for 42 years and have 3 wonderful children. We have 8 amazing grandchildren. In my spare time, I enjoy traveling and reading mysteries.

Assistant Principal

Jeffrey Barrineau

I have had the honor of serving children in South Carolina as an educator for 25 plus years.  My first 14 years in education were in Clarendon School District 3 as a teacher, coach, and athletic director.  In 2009, my journey took me to Furman Middle School as an assistant principal.  The 2020-2021 school year is my fifth year as the assistant principal of Ebenezer Middle School.  At home, I have two children, Shelby and Granger, and my wife, Danielle.  We have a daughter and son-in-law, Anna and RJ, currently living in Virginia.  I have a BS from Francis Marion University and graduate degrees in education and education leadership from Cambridge College.  In my spare time, I am an avid fan and supporter of Clemson University athletics, coach of my children’s recreational teams, and gardener/farmer.
