Dr. Marty Connor is set to become just the 2nd principle in South Pointe High School’s history. Connor will take over at the end of June. Connor comes to South Pointe from Orangeburg School District 3 where he served as the Associate Superintendent of Curriculum and Instruction.
Connor takes over the position after Leonard announced he would be stepping down at the end of the school year. Leonard has served as the principal of South Pointe since it’s opening in 2005.
From 2003 to 2006, he served as an assistant principal at Rawlinson Road Middle School before moving to Fort Mill School District where he led a redevelopment effort to establish an alternative program for at-risk students before being named the first principal of Banks Trail Middle School in 2009.
He later spent two years in Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools where he oversaw the Northeast and Central Learning Communities.
