Two New Elementary Principals Named in District 50

The Early Childhood Center and Woodfields Elementary School will have new faces as principals next year.

Ginny Metts has been named as the Early Childhood Center’s new Director. Metts is currently in her 6th year as Principal at Woodfields Elementary School. She received her Bachelor’s degree from in Elementary Education and her Masters of Education degree in School Administration from the University of South Carolina.

In 1997, Metts was named the Principal at Lakeview Elementary School. Her 14 year tenure at Lakeview was highlighted by Palmetto Gold and Silver awards for student achievement, the implementation of several successful district initiatives, and Red Carpet School recognition.

Metts has also served as a teacher, curriculum coordinator, and administrator in Orangeburg and Lexington during her career in public education.  “I am excited about my next career opportunity in District 50,” Metts said. “ECC offers a quality early childhood education experience for all students that is engaging and diverse. I look forward to building positive relationships with our faculty, staff, and parents as we continue to provide our students with the building blocks for future success.”

Travis Blizzard has been named as Principal at Woodfields Elementary School. Blizzard is currently the Assistant Principal at Woodfields, a position he has held for the past two years. During his 20 years in District 50, Blizzard has served as a teacher, assistant principal, and summer school coordinator. He is a graduate of Erskine College with a

Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education. He received his Masters of Education degree in Educational Leadership from Clemson University.  “I look forward to my new role with the Woodfields family,” Blizzard stated. “I am confident that our collective efforts as a school community will have a positive impact on the learning and lives of our students.”

Superintendent Darrell Johnson is excited to have two outstanding administrators moving into new roles in the district.  “Mrs. Metts and Mr. Blizzard will both do a tremendous job as administrators at their respective schools,” Superintendent Johnson stated. “They will have a positive impact on the faculty, staff, students and parents at the Early Childhood Center and Woodfields.

Both administrators have a proven track record for success in our district and I fully anticipate this to continue at their new schools.
