Meka Childs, a Republican candidate for state superintendent of education, picked up another endorsement from a GOP S.C. House member Wednesday.

State Rep. Kris Crawford, R-Florence, endorsed Childs, a former public school teacher who worked under Superintendent Mick Zais as the deputy superintendent of school effectiveness. Crawford praised Childs for her “dedication to ensuring that every child who receives a diploma in South Carolina is ready for work or college.”

Childs, one of eight Republicans running for the post, also has been endorsed by Zais and state Rep. Eric Bedingfield, R-Greenville.
