    I am excited to begin my second year as the Principal at Harbison West!  Prior to this, I served as an Assistant Principal at Spring Hill High School, Columbia High School and William Howard Taft High School (Chicago, IL).  I received my undergraduate degree in Education from the University of Michigan and my Masters in Educational Leadership from Northeastern Illinois University.  I enjoy working with students and teachers to help maximize their potential as learners and eduators.  To relax, I enjoy spending time with my wife, Danielle and my sons, Micah and Caleb.  I also enjoy watching Michigan football.  Go Blue!!!

    Mrs. Lunsford, Assistant Principal Hello!  I am Carol Lunsford, assistant principal at HWES.  I am delighted to be a member of the Harbison West Elementary family!   

    Previously, I served as the Assistant Principal at Memminger Elementary, in downtown Charleston, and the year before worked as an Instructional Coach for the school district.  I taught for seven years at Ashley River Creative Arts, and my very first teaching position was as a naturalist for the Barrier Island Environmental Education program.  I graduated with honors in Elementary Education from Clemson University and received my masters degree in School Administration from The Citadel.

    I look forward to getting to know each of you and believe that together we will have a fantastic school year!
