Meet Dr. Little

  • Dr. Greg Little

    In 2016, Dr. Gregory D. Little, Ed.D. took the helm as superintendent of Lexington County School District One, one of the largest school districts in South Carolina, with more than 27,000 students, 3,900 staff and 31 schools. Prior to joining the Lexington District One family, Dr. Little served as the superintendent of Mount Airy City Schools in Mount Airy, N.C. for four and half years.  

    Now in his fifth year at Lexington District One, Dr. Little established the vision to “Empower each child to design the future.” Through this vision and strategic planning, he has worked to design schools as service-oriented Centers of Learning, maintain a strong graduation rate, promote mental health wellness, increase technology innovation and computer science programs, and expand dual enrollment partnerships with local colleges and universities. 

    During the unprecedented 2020–2021 school year, Dr. Little successfully navigated the district through the COVID-19 pandemic, adopting the district’s theme “Stronger Together.” With Dr. Little’s leadership, the district remained focused on providing the very best possible education for every student while keeping students and staff as safe and healthy as possible. In addition to the COVID-19 pandemic, Dr. Little also oversaw the construction of the new Pelion Middle School and the groundbreaking of the new Lakeside Middle School.

    The son of two educators, Dr. Little dedicated his career to education. Dr. Little used the prestigious NC Teaching Fellows scholarship he received to earn his undergraduate degree in English from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington followed by a master’s degree and doctorate in curriculum and instruction from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Dr. Little served as a teacher, coach and assistant superintendent before stepping into the role as superintendent.

    He and his wife Julie have been married for 20 years and have two daughters, Naomi, who attends school in Lexington District One, and Kaylee, who recently graduated from a district high school and attends college in the state.
