About the Author
The Honorable Jeanette Mullen Harper was born Arlie Jeanette Lovin in Tellico Plains, Tennessee. She earned a degree in English-speech from Carson-Newman College and did her graduate work at the Citadel in South Carolina. For nineteen years she taught twelfth grade English and was Governor Edwards’ liaison to the State Board of Education. During those years she was also active as a wife, mother, Presbyterian Elder, and community volunteer. In 1985, Jeanette was approached by senators from her district and asked to serve as a magistrate for Charleston County, East Cooper Court. She said, “Oh, no. I am a teacher. I don’t want to do that.” Her husband Jim thought she should have a break from teaching and persuaded her to accept the appointment, especially since the commitment was for only two years. That was over twenty-five years ago. As a Charleston County Magistrate, Judge Harper served as President of the National Judges Association (2002-2003); and was voted the most Outstanding Non-attorney Judge in the United States (2005). Judge Harper founded the Mount Pleasant chapter of Toastmasters International. Judge Harper retired from the Magistrate Court in 2007, but continues to preside as the Chief Judge for the Isle of Palms Municipal Court. The quieter pace allows Judge Harper and her husband Jim to enjoy more time with their combined family of six children and twelve grandchildren. Judge Harper remains grateful for opportunities to serve, and is thankful for a wonderful family who values her work.
