Bachelor's Degree in Social Studies Secondary Education: 6th-12th Grade

Mr. Darius Custard

I am thrilled to return home as a 7th grade social studies teacher! I was born and raised in Elgin, graduating from Lugoff-Elgin High School in 2011. I went on to graduate from North Greenville University, where I met my wife, Merry Custard. She’s a teacher in Kershaw County as well. We have two amazing and active daughters, Kobie and Frankie, as well as our little pup, JoJo. Whether we are taking family adventures, enjoying the outdoors, cheering for Kobie at gymnastics, playing basketball, or having dance parties in the living room, there is never a dull day in the Custard household! I am also an assistant football coach at Lugoff-Elgin High School, so we enjoy the Friday night lights as well.


I am so grateful I’ve been given the opportunity to encourage, empower, and educate the children of my hometown in my 3rd year as an educator. We will have a great school year; there is no other option!
