    What's New at Sampit

    Sampit Welcomes New Principal

    Tara Ward

    Sampit Elementary will soon welcome a new principal. Starting July 1, 2021, Tara Ward will take over as principal of Sampit. At the June 8 board meeting, Superintendent Keith Price recommended and the GCSD School Board approved the selection. 

    “Ms. Wardis committed to ensuring that the varied needs of all students are met and building upon the strong home-school-community relationships that have been established,” said Executive Director of Elementary Schools, Fedrick Cohens. 

    Superintendent Price said, “Throughout the interview process, I enjoyed hearing Mrs. Ward’s ideas for the Sampit family and her learning about her role as an instructional leader who guides and supports her fellow educators.  Most importantly, her passion for and commitment to the success of each of her students makes her a great match for the culture that currently exists at Sampit.  I look forward to seeing many Sampit success stories under Mrs. Ward’s leadership.”

    Ward will replace the current principal, Sabrina Goff-Mack who is retiring after thirty years of dedicated service to GCSD. Ward currently serves as an assistant principal at Andrews Elementary.

    “I look forward to building lasting relationships with the Sampit community as we work to ensure the success of our students.  It will be an honor to serve the students, parents, faculty and staff of Sampit Elementary,” said Ward.

    Ward is a native of Georgetown County and a graduate of Andrews High School. She has spent her educational career at Andrews Elementary where she taught third and first grades prior to becoming the assistant principal.  Ward holds a Bachelor of Arts in Education in Early Childhood Education and a Master of Education in Educational Leadership from Coastal Carolina University; a Master of Education in Divergent Learning from Columbia College; and is currently pursuing a Doctorate in Education in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of South Carolina.

    Principal's Message


    Dear Parents,

    It is with a heavy heart that I announce that I will not be returning to Sampit Elementary in the 2021-2022 school year. I will be retiring after 30 years of service in GCSD. Eighteen of those years were spent as a Sampit Panther. I will miss everyone but I know that the future is very bright for our school. I have enjoyed every moment of my journey. Over the years, I have been personally impacted by my interactions with parents and students. Please see the attached flyer regarding an opportunity for the community and parents to meet with district office staff to discuss the hiring process and gather input regarding the future principal. Thank you for your continued support as we make this transition.

    With Love,

    Sabrina Goff-Mack
