Dr. Timothy Carnahan to be the next principal at LES

In a meeting Wednesday, January 15th, with Lexington Elementary School staff, Lexington County School District One Superintendent Dr. Greg Little announced that Timothy Carnahan, ED.D., will become principal of Lexington Elementary School.

Carnahan, who has 28 years of education experience, currently serves as principal of Waccamaw Intermediate School in the Georgetown County School District.

An award-winning principal, he began his career teaching third and fourth grades at GCSD’s McDonald Elementary School in 1992. In 1997, the district promoted him to assistant principal at the same school.
He transferred to Sampit Elementary School in 1999 and helped open that new school. Later, he helped them achieve National Blue Ribbon award recognition.

In 2002, the district promoted Carnahan to the position of principal of GCSD’s Pleasant Hill Elementary School. During his three years there, the school received recognition for closing the student achievement gap.

Carnahan joined the district office as Special Programs Coordinator in 2005, where he helped implement an International Baccalaureate Program in Pre-K through grade 12. He also supervised gifted and talented academic and artistic programs.

He returned to the work he loved best by becoming principal at Waccamaw Intermediate School when it opened in 2008. While there, the school earned a 2019 Palmetto’s Finest award, consecutive Palmetto Gold Awards for overall achievement, recognition for closing the student achievement gap, and National Blue Ribbon School status.

He also received numerous personal awards and recognitions, including 2018 National Distinguished Principal recognition from the National Association of Elementary Schools and 2017 South Carolina Elementary Principal of the Year from the South Carolina Association of School Administrators.

Carnahan received a Bachelor of Arts in elementary education from Kent State University, a Master of Arts in elementary education from The Citadel, and a Doctorate in educational leadership from Nova Southeastern University.
