Johnny Mack Brown

Class of 1955

Johnny Mack Brown graduated from Greenville High School in 1955. During his attendance he was a member of the baseball team and varsity football team, and played in the Shrine Bowl and all-star conference. It was this experience and the strong values instilled in him during those years that helped prepare him for his duties as an outstanding public servant.

Sheriff Brown was born and raised in Greenville County by loving and devoted parents who taught him the importance of a quality education and who were faithful and dedicated church members. He attended local public schools and went on to serve his country in the United States Army. Johnny Mack continued his education while working and raising a family, and received his Master’s Degree in Criminal Justice from the University of South Carolina. Since that time he has worked tirelessly to ensure professional and accountable law enforcement for every member of our community. From 1976 until his retirement in January 2201, Johnny Mack Brown served as Sheriff of Greenville County for six consecutives terms making him the longest serving Sheriff in Greenville County. He brought honor and integrity back to the Sheriff’s Office making it one of the finest law enforcement agencies in the nation, and an agency that all Greenvillians could be proud of.

Johnny Mack Brown also made selfless contributions during his tenure while serving on numerous local boards and committees, as well as president of the South Carolina Sheriffs’ Association, and later as president of the National Sheriffs’ Association. His professional opinions on law enforcement issues were sought by countless law enforcement agencies throughout the country.

In 2002, President George W. Bush recognized Johnny Mack as a state and national leader in progressive modernization of law enforcement by appointing him as United States Marshal for the District of South Carolina, where he continues to serve the people of South Carolina today.
