Mrs. Kim Statler

Executive Director

For more than 20 years Statler has worked to improve economic opportunities across the Lowcountry,
including the past seven years as Regional Workforce Advisor for the S.C. Department of Commerce.
She holds a Master’s degree in health care administration from Des Moines University in Iowa and a
Bachelor’s degree in political science and economics from Southeast Missouri State University.
She was part of the original planning committee that created Polaris Tech and has served on the Board
of Directors from the start – but resigned from the board earlier this month.
“I have been deeply involved in Polaris Tech since two years before we opened the school,” Statler
said. “As one of the founders, and then as a board member, I’ve been closely involved and informed
about what has been working and where our challenges remain. I see my job as building on the
successes of my predecessors.
