Charleston County mosquito control manager to retire

Donna Odom

Charleston County Council will recognize its outgoing mosquito control manager for 26 years of services at a meeting Tuesday.

Donna Odom will retire this month. She started working as the assistant mosquito control manager for the county in 1989.

“Donna Odom is not only a great supervisor but a great person as well,” said Public Works Director Jim Neal, in a prepared statement. “Under her leadership, our Mosquito Control Department has grown into one of the finest operations in the state. Donna’s contributions to the citizens of Charleston County will be missed.”

Charleston County’s mosquito control program is the largest in the state.
