Hello My Name Is...

Samuel Wayne West

My name is Samuel Wayne West. I am a graduate of Fort Valley State University, in Fort Valley, Georgia. After graduation, I worked in the utility industry for seven years prior to pursuing full-time ministry. It was during this time when I served as an associate pastor that a temporary 90-day assignment as a Christian Day Care Director turned into a twelve year career in Christian Education.

During my twenty plus years of motivating, influencing and empowering children to reach their full potential, I have realized that a three-fold cord (parents, school, students) is not easily broken. I am still a firm believer in home and school working together for student success.

I have served as principal of a Kindergarten through 8th grade Christian Academy, Director of Christian Education, middle school teacher (Rex Mill Middle School), assistant principal (Elite Scholars Academy Charter School) and currently I am the proud principal of Church Street Elementary School in Clayton County, Georgia.

As we move forward in this year of “Winning With What We Have” I am excited about the opportunities for growth for our students and our staff. If I can be of assistance, please feel free to contact me at or (770) 994-4000.
