Dusty McCracken was born in Tennessee and spent most his childhood in a small country town of Bulls Gap, very similar to the community charm that Surfside Beach has shown him for over 11 years. Dusty graduated Cherokee High School in 2005 in the town of Rogersville Tn. He has shown loyalty to his full-time career as a Food Lion manager for over 17 years. Dusty has had the opportunity to build community partners by volunteering and supporting local businesses and also volunteering to charities in his spare time. Dusty currently serves on the Surfside Beach planning commission, a statutory board member of seven local residents and also served as Vice Chairman for the Surfside Beach Pier Committee. Dusty relocated to Surfside Beach in 2012 and fell in love: such friendly, fun neighbors, & community of great people that want to protect a high quality of life.
