Edgefield County School District Names Allen Gray as Director of Strom Thurmond Career Center

Dr. Gray Previously Served as a Principal in Washington County, Ga.


Edgefield County School District (ECSD) is pleased to announce the hiring of Dr. Allen E. Gray as the new director of the Strom Thurmond Career and Technology Center (STCTC). The move is a homecoming of sorts for Dr. Gray since he started his teaching career at Strom Thurmond High School (STHS).

Prior to his appointment as STCTC director, Dr. Gray served as principal at Washington County High School (WCHS), principal at Washington County Alternative School, and assistant principal at Washington County and Baldwin high schools. All four schools are located in Georgia.

Dr. Gray received a bachelor’s degree from West Virginia State University and a master’s degree from Troy University. He went on to receive specialist and doctoral degrees in educational leadership from Nova Southeastern University. 

“My goal as the director of STCTC is to continue developing and maintaining a dynamic, technology-advanced, well-rounded, and high-achieving career and technology center that meets the needs of the students and fosters individual growth and personal development,” Dr. Gray says. “The Career and Technology Center will continue preparing students for study in many career fields while simultaneously instilling traits of good personal and professional character.”

He adds, “Furthermore, it is my goal for the public and my peers to recognize the students at STCTC as outstanding young ladies and gentlemen. The STCTC will continue being cooperative with other schools and community programs and will continue being recognized as a career and technology center of excellence.”

Dr. Gray will replace Mack Hite, who has been named the new athletic director of Emerald High School in Greenwood, S.C. In addition to his duties as the director of STCTC, Hite was the athletic director and head baseball coach of STHS.
