Dr. Greg Owings, School Principal | Original SC

There has been one consistency in Dr. Greg Owings 44 years spent in education: relationships. In his five years as principal at Dutch Fork High School, Owings has taken initiative to make sure each day would be the best it could be for his staff and students.

“It is all about the relationships,” Owings said. “When I took the job, I knew it was important for myself and the rest of the administration team to be visible and develop relationships with our students. I love our kids and I take great pride in what we have accomplished.”

U.S. News & World Report and The Washington Post rated Dutch Fork as the top traditional high school in South Carolina in 2016. In 2015, the school opened its Health Science Center, a 30,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art instruction space that enrolls more than 250 students participating in practicums through local medical offices while studying sports medicine and other health fields at the school.
