Mr. Cody Strong

My name is Cody Strong and I am thrilled to be the Assistant Principal at Pine Tree Hill Elementary.  I am a proud product of the Kershaw County School District.  I graduated from Winthrop University in 2007 with a B.A. in History and then from Gardner-Webb University in 2015 with a M.Ed. in Executive Leadership.  I began my teaching career at Rock Hill High School where I taught Social Studies from 2008-2016.  I was also a baseball and swim teach coach while at Rock Hill High.  In 2016-2017, I was at Kelly Mill Middle School where I was also a Social Studies teacher and I was an Assistant Principal at Lugoff Elgin Middle School from 2017-2021.

 
I am married to an absolutely wonderful woman who is also a Kershaw County graduate and we have two sons, Jake (8) and Grayson (6).  I am a huge Clemson fan and my personal interests include woodworking, hunting/fishing, and spending time with my family.  It is a dream come true to be able to be back in Kershaw County and I am looking forward to working with the students, faculty, and community here.  If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.  Thanks and let's have a great year!
