John Marion "Johnny" Vaught, III has contributed in many ways to higher education in South Carolina, earning both a baccalaureate and a master's degree from the University of South Carolina in Columbia. He began working in industry for a time before teaching in the South Carolina Technical College System, first at Midlands Tech and then at Horry-Georgetown Technical College for more than three decades. His service on the Horry County Higher Education Commission demonstrated good stewardship of the county tax millage designated for higher education. To further support Coastal Carolina University's growth, he advocated for its use of valuable real estate in the Atlantic Business Center, where Coastal’s East Campus is now located. As a diligent public servant, he served in the Conway Chamber of Commerce, the Waccamaw Sertoma Club, and the Horry County Council to help improve life for residents of Horry County. He continues to work towards better road conditions and infrastructure in the county.
