Mr. Britt Gardner

I am thrilled to begin my 2nd year as the Principal of THE North Central Elementary! I most recently served as Principal of Mt. Pisgah Elementary for 4 years after serving 5 years as the Assistant Principal of Lugoff-Elgin Middle School. In my 21-year career in education, I have 11 years of teaching experience that includes every grade level, K-12. I am a proud member of The Citadel's Class of 2000, where I was blessed with a scholarship to play football. I earned my Master's Degree (Education Administration) from Grand Canyon University in 2009.

My wife of 20 years, Nicole, is an amazing woman who is a teacher at Blaney Elementary. I have two sons, Brauton (18 yrs) and Bradock (16 yrs). As a family, we love our church, we love going to Clemson Football games, and we love spending time together on Lake Wateree and by the ocean.

I am proud of the amazing job our entire North Central Elementary family did as we consolidated 3 schools in the middle of the school year last year.  I look forward to continuing to build and strengthen our family-focused school community as we strive for Excellence...Always!
