BEAUFORT – A former Lady’s Island Middle School assistant principal will be returning to the school as its next leader.

Superintendent Jeff Moss told the Board of Education tonight that Gregory Hall, who served as an assistant principal at Lady’s Island Middle from 2011 to 2015, will become principal there on July 1. During the 2015-16 academic year, he served as an assistant principal at Robert Smalls International Academy.

Hall replaces Auman Kates, who is leaving the district due to out-of-state family commitments.

“Mr. Hall already has extensive connections with the Lady’s Island community because of his four years there,” Moss said. “I know he’s excited about this opportunity, and I’m confident that he’ll do a terrific job.”

Hall worked as a music teacher and band director for nine years in Greenville and Colleton counties before coming to the Beaufort County School District in 2011. Prior to becoming a professional educator, Hall served in the U.S. Marine Corps for eight years and was deployed to Kuwait in 2003. His numerous recognitions in the military include the Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medal with Gold Star.

“I’m excited about the opportunity to return to Lady’s Island Middle School,” Hall said. “It’s a great school with a hard-working team of professionals and staff, terrific students and parents, and strong community support. There’s no doubt in my mind that we can all work together to keep advancing toward excellence.”

Hall has a bachelor’s degree from Furman University and a master’s degree in Education Leadership from the University of South Carolina. He is working toward a doctorate at the University of South Carolina.
