Mr. Rhea Faris

This is my fifth year as an assistant principal at Lugoff-Elgin High School.  After graduating from Camden High School in 1998, I attended Presbyterian College and graduated with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Mathematics in 2002.  I taught math for 16 years and coached at Laurens District 55 High School, Chapin High School, and Mid-Carolina High School.  During my time at Chapin I earned a Master of Arts Degree in Educational Leadership from the University of the Cumberlands.  I have been married 15 years and have two girls.  One is 11 and the other is 8.  
I am excited about being at LEHS this year and being a part of the great things that are going on at the school.  I look forward to working with the students, faculty, and parents to make this year the best ever.
