Mary Mac Ogden, PhD - HS Social Studies

Hello My Name Is...

Dr. Mary Mac Ogden


Welcome to BCSVA! 

I hold a doctorate in United States history from the University of South Carolina (Go Gamecocks!) with special fields in American Women and United States South. Nationalism, the history of the South and civil rights movements figure prominently in my research.

My daughter is a Lt. in the Marine Corps who graduated from the United States Naval Academy in 2019 where she played soccer for the Navy Women’s Soccer Team (#26). She is a strategic air defense officer and lives in Okinawa, Japan. My husband is a Lt. Colonel in the US Army Reserves stationed out of Fort Bragg, and my youngest daughter is a 2021 graduate of UNC where she was a Robertson Scholar. I work weekends for her company, Eats2Seats, that provides support for community non-profits.

I love to travel, read, write and hike. I am so excited to work with BCSVA this year!
